Visiting Indonesia


Indonesia is a traveler’s delight. If you have one place you would like to spend peacefully, it is Indonesia. You will want to see Indonesia not for the political environment of this country but for its unsurpassed scenic beauty. Here are some destinations that should be part of your international travel, while in Indonesia.

While Indonesia is divided into seven regions, I’ll try to share the beauty of these places rather than the geography.

SumatraSumatra is known for its scenic beauty and rich culture. You will witness beautiful architecture and if you are there at the right time, a few festivals that are worth seeing. You get a ready glimpse of the Indonesian culture in this region. The waterfalls, mountains and the natural beauty of this place make it a scenic wonder. Your international travel ambitions get a big shot in the arm after you visit some of the mountains in Sumatra making you want to come back frequently. This is the perfect destination for the nature tourist.

West SumatraWest Sumatra is also the home of the Minangkabau, an ethnic group which follows the matrilineal system. This means women own property while men chose to relocate frequently. The best aspect of any international travel is that you get to know a lot about the people and the cultures of the places you visit. And then you feel like doing it all over again!

On the other hand, South Sumatra is very new as a tourist destination. It includes Palembang, which was a major port in the ancient times. Today it is an oil rich region and therefore one of Indonesia’s richest cities. The canoe races held here are quite a sight to watch. This is usually held during Independence day. The coast is mostly untouched and one can see a variety of wild animals here.

Borobudur TempleJakarta, on the other hand is a mix of nature and entertainment resources. Your international travel is incomplete without the seeing the Krakatau, the volcano and Borobudur Temple. Jakarta is a place you will usually find full of music, entertainment and sports contests.

East Java is a peaceful place for the nature lover tourist. You can also make the most of Bali here. Bali is the most popular tourist spot in Indonesia. It has been specially developed for this purpose unlike other regions which evolved as tourist spots on their own over a period of time. Bali is well equipped to cater to preferences of all types of tourists. International travel packages offered by operators promote Bali in a big way as it is a major source of revenue for Indonesia.

Bali offers you the perfect vacation spot. Take a few days off in Bali and live life to the fullest. On the other hand if you are in search of silence, the other islands of Indonesia add just the right flavor to your International travel ideas. So don’t wait anymore. Plan your trip, pack your bags and leave for Indonesia! A fabulous travel destination awaits.
