With 17,000 islands spanning 5,000km east to west and 2,000km north to south, Indonesia offers amazing variety. Most tourists never venture beyond Jakarta and Bali, but that overlooks the almost endless variety of landscape, creatures, climates, cultures and travel possibilities. Step outside the tourist traps where few bules (pronounced boo-lay, meaning foreigner) venture, where local communities will welcome you with open arms, and people help each other just because. The places you can go to in Indonesia will warm your heart.
