Culture

A world of cultures assimilate to develop the rich, culturally diverse nation we see today. So, really, there is no one piece of Indonesian culture, generally everything you see will be promoted from a dominant religion or ethnic group dependant on where you are in this wonderful country.

Religion

There are six main religions in Indonesia, the main one being Islam. The country boasts the largest Muslim population in the world. However, Protestantism, Catholicism, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Confucianism are also prevalent in particular regions. Bali, as an example, promotes a culture of Hinduism.

Cuisine

It’s location on ancient trading routes between the Far East, South Asia and the Middle East ensured the cuisine of Indonesia reflected the nation’s vast cultural diversity. Expect plenty of spices and vibrant flavours adorning menus across the archipelago.

Things to do

You can, pretty much, please yourself in Indonesia. If you prefer exploring a strange new city, then somewhere like Jakarta is perfect. Beach bums will love Bali and it's uniquely beautiful stretches of coastline. Whereas, adventure-seekers will find the region's plethora of volcanoes, mountain ranges and tropical rainforests are ideal for some expeditionary fun.

Climate

Indonesia straddles the equator for a whopping 5000km, this ensures an almost entirely tropical climate. Generally, the mercury doesn’t move far from the late 20’s regardless of whether you’re sunning it up on the beaches or exploring the more mountainous inland regions. So, lush tropical rainforests are prevalent across the nation.
