Indonesia Travel Guide


Plan Your Indonesia Vacation

Thanks to its size and climate, Indonesia has enormous biodiversity—1,500 species of colorful birds, a glittering array of tropical fish, and mammals like elephants, rhinos, and the world’s largest population of orangutans. Though you'd never know it on some of the more exclusive beaches that ring the country's 17,000 islands, Indonesia is home to more than 230 million people. It's the largest economy in Southeast Asia and the larger cities are burdened by the challenges of the modern world. The country's capital (and its commercial and economic center) Jakarta suffers from gridlock, pollution, and flooding, but other locations across archipelago are more appealing, most notably famed tropical paradise island Bali.
