Indonesia, a Southeast Asian nation which is made up of thousands of volcanic islands, is also home to scores of ethnic groups speaking many different languages. It’s known for volcanoes, beaches, Komodo dragons and jungles sheltering elephants and orangutans. It is also famous as one of the best scuba diving sites in the world, with many professional and amateur divers taking the plunge at Raja Ampat islands and Sulawesi. It is also one of the most exotic birding destinations in the whole of Asia, with the West Papua, Sulawesi and Borneo regions leading the charge. The country also hosts some of the famous “birds of paradise”, as well as the last wild Orangutans. If island hopping gives you a kick, then we bet you will not be able to finish even 10% of Indonesia’s islands in a single trip. There are luxury resorts for the discerning traveller, providing all the modern amenities in the middle of the wilderness. Emerald islands, azure beaches, coral life and fresh seafood will be aplenty in any beach trip planned to this wonderland.
