I am also from an archipelagic country and I never considered visiting Indonesia. “What for? I live in a similar country I don’t think there’s a different thing to see.” I said. In 2015, “what for?” turned out to be a great embarrassment when I had a chance to embark on an adventure in Indonesia. Whenever we hear the country’s name, Bali automatically comes to the visual but what I found out to be true is that there is so much more to this country than Bali. From my first visit, I already when there three times staying for a minimum of two weeks because spending time and having amazing adventures in Indonesia is easy – you’ll never run out! In fact, I don’t even think that one month is even enough to travel to this wonderful country.
Being the largest archipelago in the world, Indonesia boasts a diverse selection of culture and natural wonders in its more than 18,000 islands. Their ancestry dates back in the 20th century when traders in the Pacific Ocean often pass by. Kingdoms have ruled for centuries until it became a republic. This has left some of the most important archaeological remnants that are being studied today. In fact, some of the first human civilization were discovered in Indonesia, thus it was named the Java Man. The country is also recognized as one of the largest Muslim nations in the world. The songs, dances, and textiles are very intricate that visitors bring them home. From temples to forests to beaches, witness wonderful Indonesia by browsing below.
