WHY I LOVE INDONESIA
It’s like a twin sister of my country. Indonesia is one of the countries in Southeast Asia that most people don’t pay attention to but there is so much diversity — beaches, mountain peaks, volcanoes, lakes — name it, they have it! And the food… oh the food! I am saying this with all my truth: this is the best food in the region. For me, Indonesia is the perfect portrait of the great outdoors.
Resorts are definitely popular in the islands. Budget backpacker hostels can start from 3USD a night while mid range hotels are around 20-50USD per night. These budget accommodation has basic amenities and nothing fancy. If you are in for real comfort and relaxation, Indonesia has some of the beautiful hotels with a view which you can pay for at least 100USD per night.
Your taste buds will be treated by a burst of flavor from the Javanese cuisine. Don’t miss the nasi or rice dishes, wherein it is combined by variety of flavors and meat. Noodle and soup meals are also a staple and can be eaten anytime of the day. Spicy food is famous among the locals, you can definitely tell them the spiciness level that you want. The food can range from a dollar starting from the street food and up to 10USD in restaurants.
Being an island nation, airports are everywhere in major cities that connects throughout the country. Budget airlines has risen its services as well. It can cost around 30USD-40USD depending on the season. If you are in for some scenic view, trains are also connected to and from Jakarta. Another popular transport is through the ferries, which connects the islands and can sometimes be faster than longer bus trips. Trains, ferries and buses are cheap to take and can cost from 7USD-20USD.
Guests will be treated to some of the beautiful natural sites of the world. It is definitely doable to explore by yourself and pay entrance fees. And it is not that much, only around a dollar or two for natural parks. Famous temples like Yogyakarta charges 20USD per person but you can save through combined ticket package. Getting there, especially in the islands are sometimes more expensive. That is possible through arrange tours from travel agencies.
