Indonesia 101: More Than Just Bali!

IndonesiaIndonesia is more than Bali! Indonesia is home to over 17,000 islands, where only 6,000 are inhabited by people. Throughout the islands you are bound to see at least one volcano, on the ground or in the air!

When should you plan to go? The best time to travel to Indonesia is June through October, the best months being June or September because the days are dry & sunny with a consistent & comfortable temperature of around 80 degrees! 

The government of Indonesia recognizes a handful of religions; the most popular being Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism. They are very culturally diverse with their own customs and religions, yet extremely respectful of each others’ beliefs. Traveling to Indonesia offers such a wonderful example of how religion can differ between neighbors but be culturally accepted, which is often a rarity. This harmonious culture really is something to experience for yourself; it is so moving from a spiritual and humanitarian standpoint that most travelers come away with a better understanding of not only the many cultures and religions of Indonesia, but of themselves and their place in the world as well.
