The Republic of Indonesia consists of a mind-boggling 17,508 islands and has a population of approximately 230 million people, a figure that makes it the fourth most populated country in the world. However, despite the huge population, Indonesia still has vast areas of wilderness that are home to some of the most diverse flora and fauna on the planet.
Indonesia touches both the Pacific Ocean and the Indian Ocean while also bridging the continents of Australasia and Asia. The Indonesian Archipelago stretches for over 5,000km and is located entirely in the tropics, on both sides of the equator. The country is culturally and linguistically diverse, with around 500 languages and dialects spoken by its many different ethnic groups. Indonesia is also an incredibly beautiful country with many stunning beaches and islands, active volcanoes and thick, dense jungles.
For many, the main attraction of Indonesia is the lifestyle and customs of its people.

Also, there is never a bad time to visit the country as its climate is tropical year round, with hot and humid weather inland that is often cooled by pleasant breezes on the coast or cooler air in the mountainous regions.
