Indonesia

 

Spanning between the Indian and Pacific Oceans, Indonesia is made of over 17,000 islands with various cultural traditions across the country. Although ‘Bahasa Indonesia’ is the official language, there are over 700 languages spoken across the country!

Indonesian people are friendly to everyone, always willing to share their full smiles and help one another. The local food is fresh (and spicy), with a lot of rice harvested from the paddies covering the land. This tropical country is full of life and history and safe for travelers from around the world!
