Indonesia is a fascinating country. It covers a colossal land mass and is constituted of 17000 islands, out of which approximately half are inhabited. The major islands are Bali, Sumatra, Java, and Sulawesi. You would want to begin your beautiful journey in this country from Bali. Bali will fill you with soothing beaches, rhythmic rice terraces, sacred temples and quaint villages. Kuta, Sanuf, Nusa Dua and Jimbaran are some of the finest beaches here. The intrinsic parts of the islands must be on your list when it comes to Indonesia, be it Kintamani, the active smoking volcano or Ubud with its stuffed tranquillity.
Another beach resort that would be best not missed is Lombok on the island of Sumatra with its luscious greenery and the rice fields. The curious and interested minds in archaeology, quickly run to Java because it lets you on a rendezvous with the 1200 year old Buddhist relics and Prambanan, with its 9th century Hindu temple complex. Next stop…Jakarta. Yes, this is the capital of the country and it will surprise you with places like Old Quarter and National Museum. Home to the well-known Komodo Dragons is the Island of Komodo. These big lizards grow up to 3m in length. The island of Sulawesi holds numerous volcanoes, pleasant rice fields, and heart melting scenery. It has some of the best scuba diving and snorkelling in Indonesia.
