Out of the 13,000 islands making up the largest archipelago in the world that is Indonesia, only 6,000 of these are inhabited by humans. The Indonesia wilderness is renowned for its rich biodiversity, and coupled together with the unique, diverse culture of its people, visitors are promised a fruitful Southeast Asian experience.

Start your visit to Indonesia by learning about local history. Travel to the magnificent Borobudur in Yogyakarta, which used to be one of the 7 wonders of the world. Standing as the world’s biggest Buddhist monument, it has much to offer. Only an hour away from Yogyakarta, it is best to get to the ruins by tour bus or car. Prambanan, the largest Hindu temple in Southeast Asia, is another temple worth visiting for its grandeur. You slot that in after visiting Borobudur as they are relatively close to each other.

The surf is up in Bali, the most popular tourist destination for white, sandy beaches that stretch on for miles at end. Enjoy water sports along the beaches or take a dive under the turquoise waters. Adventurous ones can take up white-water rafting or ATV beach rides. The beauty of the natural landscape in Bali is also good for camera enthusiasts, especially when the sun rises and sets, painting the sky orange. Do not be too preoccupied with the beaches though—Bali also houses volcano craters, lakes and various temples that are worth visiting as well.

Getting to Bali is most efficient by plane or ferry. Once there, the best way to get around is either by bike or car. Alternatively, you can hire your own driver to take you around or take the credible Bali Taxi. If you travel in a group, you could book a tourist bus, which is much more comfortable.

Spontaneous visitors can fly up 30 minutes from Bali to Lombok, which houses more exclusive and private beaches. It is not as glorified as Bali, but makes a good spot for those seeking a quieter getaway.

The Indonesian capital of Jakarta is definitely not to be missed. Jakarta is punctuated with many tourist attractions for the adventurer at heart. First off, stop by the Dream Park to unleash your inner youth. This theme park is open 24/7 and has enough attractions to fulfil your wild side. Standing in the heart of Jakarta’s city centre is the National Monument of Indonesia, which tells the story of the nation’s fight for independence. Do not miss out on the vibrant markets and Chinatown as well, which hold items ranging from wood carvings to street food (think Nasi Goreng, Mee Soto and Gado Gado). Shops offering spa services dot the town as well, so head there if you need some relaxation away from the crowds.

You can get to Jakarta by plane or ferry, but once you are there, it would be good to travel by car, motorcycles, bus or tram for easy convenience. Alternatively, you can take the Bluebird cab around the city.

If the Southeast Asian heat gets to you, try going up to the mountain range of Bandung, where it is cooler than its tropical counterparts. Bandung features excellent natural scenery good for relaxation and taking in nature. Walk through tea plantations, dormant volcanoes and relax in the hot springs, and when you’re feeling hungry, satisfy yourself with all of Bandung’s famous cuisine. Get to Bandung by taking a train or bus down from Jakarta. Once there, the best mode of travel is by taxi or car.

There are many other parts of Indonesia that are worth exploring, be it if you are adventurous or if you just want to have the perfect Indonesian getaway. There is something in Indonesia for everyone, so hop on a plane or ferry now and let your travels begin!
