Indonesia

Indonesia’s government has a tourism ministry who are focussed on sustainable tourism which they look at in three areas, economic, environmental and cultural. Indonesia is big and wild and sprawling.

How They Dazzle Us

As incredible as the beaches are it is the very unusual wildlife that is the most dazzling and unique. Animals like orang-utans, Komodo Dragons, Sumatran Tigers and Greater Paradise Birds are amongst those animals endemic to the country. It is also hard not to be dazzled by the scale of this island nation that is made up of more than 13000 islands, of which fewer than half are actually lived on.

Why We Love Them

The scale of Indonesia is quite mind boggling and given the nature of the myriad number of islands it is as easy to lose yourself on an uninhabited island as it is to do in one of the big cities. Indonesia is big and wild and sprawling and a great place to relax away from the crowds and pretence of traditional resorts.

Best Time to Visit

The dry months between May and September tend to be the best times to visit but Indonesia is close to paradise the temperatures never drops very low even in the wetter months.

Unique Foods

Indonesia offers a wide range of culinary options and influences but the one dish that stands out and of which the locals are most proud is Beef Rendang. Slow cooked and extremely tender this is a spicy meal that is similar to curry but without the broth. Also look out for the strangely coloured nasi rawon, an almost black beef stew that gets its ominous colour from the use of the keluak nut, which not only gives it its unusual colour but also its unique nutty flavour.
