About Indonesia

ATTRACTIONS: (a few major)
Indonesia and its thousands of islands offer a diverse variety of ecologies, and in recent years eco-travel to the country has increased dramatically.

The capital city of Jakarta remains the major attraction, with its colonial-style buildings and monuments reminiscent of its Dutch and British periods. Additionally within the city, points-of-interest include the Central Museum; historic Portuguese Church; Istiqlal Mosque, and the many antique markets, shopping bazaars and ethnic restaurants that cover the streets.

Outside of Jakarta, other destinations include the islands of Sulawesi (Orchid Island), Sumatra, with its volcanic mountains and hot springs, and of course, Bali.

Unfortunately, due to continuing concerns about the possibility of additional terrorist attacks directed against western citizens and interests, the U.S. Department of State and other governments continue to warn their citizens to defer non-essential travel to Indonesia, and especially to Bali, Aceh and Papua.

    There are two distinct seasons in Indonesia: wet and dry. The dry season (favorite of most visitors) is from April to October. The humidity is lower and temperatures are pleasant.

    It is advisable to avoid a trip during Ramadan, the Muslim month of fasting, as food is difficult to obtain during the daytime and most activities are minimal.
