About Indonesia

Indonesia is the world’s largest island country in Southeast Asia between the Indian and Pacific oceans. It consists of over 17,000 individual islands, including the well-known islands of Java, Sumatra, Bali, Lombok, and Sulawesi. Indonesia shares land borders with Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, and East Timor. With a population of over 270 million people, it’s the world’s 4th most populous country. The national language is Bahasa Indonesian (similar to Malay), though hundreds of local languages and dialects are also spoken across the islands. Indonesia has 34 provinces with distinct cultures, dialects, customs and cuisine.

The landscapes across the Indonesian archipelago vary dramatically, from rugged mountains to black and white sand beaches to dense tropical jungles. Many islands have volcanic peaks, and Indonesia has over 400 active volcanoes, including the famous Krakatoa volcano. Popular outdoor activities include trekking to see orangutans in Sumatra, surfing in Bali, climbing Mount Bromo volcano in Java, and scuba diving at Komodo National Park.

Indonesian culture reflects strong Hindu and Buddhist influences, Islam, Christianity, and native customs. Handicrafts like batik fabric, woven baskets, and wooden carvings are made throughout the islands. Gamelan music and shadow puppet theatres are also popular traditional art forms. Indonesian food varies by region but is known for being flavorful and containing many spices, such as chillies, coconut milk, fish sauce, and ginger.

Lombok’s staggering beauty draws tourists away from Bali, but it has no overcrowding issues! Make your way to the Gili Islands, where you’ll have a Robinson Crusoe experience with white sand beaches and lovely coral reefs for snorkelling. Within Bali’s interior, you can climb Mt. Rinjani or step into lushly forested Sasak villages. From the nearby Bangsal Harbour, you can find boats going to the remote Banyuwangi Islands. This is the place for you if you want a more laid-back Indonesian visit.

Ubud, Bali

Ubud is Bali’s cultural and artistic centre, surrounded by beautiful rice terraces, Hindu temples, craft shops, and healing retreats. Enrol in Balinese cooking classes, drift down rivers with monkeys on your way through Monkey Forest and visit sacred places like Goa Gajah Elephant Cave and Tirta Empul Temple during the daytime.

Borobudur Temple

Borobudur, which dates from the 8th century, is the largest Buddhist temple globally and one of the World’s Seven Wonders.

Getting to Derawan takes some time, but it’s worth it.

Medan and Lake Toba, Sumatra

Medan is Sumatra’s largest city and a stepping stone into cooler highland getaways like Lake Toba. During your city tour, you can sample tantalising Indian-Indonesian fusion cuisine. Afterwards, catch a ferry to laid-back Samosir Island, where you can go swimming and hiking, among other things, through the available Batak culture experiences. While there, don’t forget orangutan treks in Bukit Lawang.

Raja Ampat Islands

Raja Ampat, or the Four Kings Islands, has more than 1,500 tiny islands that boast among the finest snorkelling and diving sites anywhere on the planet.

What is the Best Time to Visit Indonesia from India?

Indonesia’s proximity to India makes for a convenient Southeast Asian getaway. Deciding on the best time to visit Indonesia from India requires factoring in India’s school holidays, Indonesia’s wet and dry seasons across different islands, peak crowds, and ideal weather conditions for your itinerary.

Here is an overview of what to consider when planning the ideal Indonesia trip from India:

Seasons in Indonesia

Wet/Rainy Season: October to April brings the highest rainfall, particularly from December to February. Humidity is high, and temperatures reach the mid-30s Celsius. Downpours are intense but often brief.

Dry Season: May to September sees much less rain. The skies are sunnier, with slightly cooler temps around the low 30s Celsius. July to September have the least precipitation.

Shoulder Seasons: The transitional months of April-May and September-October are excellent times to travel. You’ll avoid major rain disruptions, and there will be fewer tourists than in peak months.

Best Times for Indian Travellers

Summer School Holidays (May – June): Indonesia’s dry season coincides perfectly with school summer vacations in India, making May and June ideal times to visit. However, temperatures do increase across Indonesia as June approaches.

Winter School Holidays (End Nov—Mid Jan): December is a popular time for Indian families to travel to Indonesia to escape the cold. Rain showers can occur but don’t last too long. Bali and Java have the least rain during December and January.

Avoid Peak Times: Indonesian & Chinese New Year (Jan/Feb), Easter Week (March/April), and July/August bring huge crowds and higher hotel rates, especially in Bali.

Best Cultural Festivals: Experience unique festivals and events in Indonesia during August (Independence Day) or September (Jakarta’s Anniversary).

Surfing: Indonesia’s peak surf season runs from April/May (before rains start) through October (before monsoon swells).

Top Destinations for Each Season

Bali – Year-round destination. April-October has ideal dry weather. December-March can have rain, but it’s still enjoyable.

Java – October-April brings more rain. It’s best from May to September.

Lombok – Visiting May-September will maximise sunshine and minimal rain.

Komodo Islands – April-September offers a drier experience and excellent diving visibility.

Sumatra — The coolest and driest months are June to August, and orangutan viewing is also best during these months.

Flores – May and September are slightly cooler, drier weather.

Sulawesi – July-September promises plenty of sun mixed with cultural events.

Raja Ampat – September-December brings ideal diving conditions and fewer crowds.

Advice for Planning Your Indonesia Trip

  • Aim for the shoulder or dry seasons to maximise sunshine, avoid rain, and avoid travel delays.
  • Don’t rule out wet-season travel. But it would be best if you were prepared for occasional downpours. The plus side is smaller crowds and lower prices.
  • Choose activities based on peak seasons—e.g., visit the Komodo Islands for diving in April-Sept and catch surfing waves in May-Oct.
  • Allow extra time around major Indonesian holidays when domestic tourists flock to popular spots.
  • Focus your trip on 1-2 main islands instead of trying to cover too much ground. Indonesia is huge!
  • Spend time in a mix of mountain/jungle areas and beach destinations to appreciate the diversity.
  • Leave time for cultural experiences – festivals, historical sites, arts – to immerse in traditions.

With some strategic planning using this guidance, you’re sure to have an amazing Indonesia vacation during the ideal time for your travel style and preferences.

Top Things to Do in Indonesia: Unmissable Experiences

Here are the top things to do in Indonesia that should be on your radar.

Explore the Fabled Island of Bali

Every visit to Indonesia is complete with venturing to the legendary island of Bali. Renowned for its artistic traditions, iconic rice paddies, and spiritual essence, Bali casts a spell on all who set foot on its shores. Wander through the sacred Monkey Forest in Ubud, watching the cheeky primates play amidst ancient temples draped in intricate stone carvings. Catch a mesmerising Balinese dance performance that brings ancient Hindu tales to life through ornate costumes and skilled choreography. Indulge in a pampering massage or rejuvenating yoga retreat to soothe your body and mind.

Encounter the Mighty Komodo Dragons

Come face-to-face with the fearsome yet fascinating Komodo dragons, the largest living lizards on Earth, found only in Indonesia’s Komodo National Park. These prehistoric-looking creatures, growing up to 3 metres in length, are an extraordinary sight to behold. Embark on a guided trek through the rugged landscapes of Komodo, Rinca, or Padar islands, watching for these magnificent reptiles basking in the sun or stalking their prey. Be sure to adhere to safety protocols and maintain a respectful distance from these formidable predators.

Dive into Underwater Wonderlands

With its prime location straddling the Pacific and Indian Oceans, Indonesia is a diver’s paradise, offering some of the world’s most spectacular underwater realms. Raja Ampat, an archipelago off the coast of West Papua, is renowned for its staggering marine biodiversity, boasting over 1,500 fish species and 600 types of coral. Explore vibrant reefs teeming with kaleidoscopic marine life, from tiny pygmy seahorses to majestic manta rays gliding gracefully overhead. Other top diving destinations include the Komodo Islands, Bunaken National Park, and the Gili Islands, each offering unique underwater landscapes and encounters with remarkable creatures.

Climb Mythical Volcanoes

Indonesia’s volcanic landscapes are captivating, with towering peaks shrouded in mystical lore and breathtaking vistas. Embark on a challenging hike to the summit of Mount Bromo, an active volcano in East Java, and witness its spectacular caldera at sunrise – a sight that will leave you awestruck. Or ascend the slopes of the revered Mount Agung in Bali, a sacred mountain steeped in Hindu mythology that offers panoramic views of the entire island. For the ultimate adventure, consider trekking up Mount Rinjani on the island of Lombok. This multi-day journey rewards you with stunning crater lakes and vistas over the surrounding volcanic peaks.

Uncover Ancient Temples and Ruins

Indonesia’s rich cultural heritage is etched into its breathtaking temples and ancient ruins, inviting you to step back in time and unravel the mysteries of bygone eras. Marvel at the awe-inspiring Borobudur, a 9th-century Buddhist monument in Central Java with thousands of intricately carved Buddha statues and stupas. Wander through the majestic Hindu temples of Prambanan, a UNESCO World Heritage Site showcasing the architectural brilliance of the Mataram Kingdom. Or delve into the lesser-known Muara Takus Compounds in Sumatra, where crumbling temples and rock carvings offer a tantalising glimpse into the region’s ancient Buddhist past.

Immerse in Vibrant Cultural Festivals

Indonesia’s cultural tapestry is woven with various vibrant festivals and ceremonies celebrating its diverse traditions and beliefs. Time your visit to coincide with the spectacular Grebeg Ritual in Yogyakarta, where the Sultan’s palace becomes the focal point of a colourful procession and festivities honouring the Javanese goddesses. Witness the unique Pasola ritual on the island of Sumba, where two groups of warriors on horseback hurl bamboo spears at each other in a centuries-old tradition. Or partake in the captivating Tana Toraja funeral ceremonies in Sulawesi, where elaborate rituals and effigies honour the dead in a celebration of life and ancestral heritage.

Navigate Mystical Rivers and Rainforests

Exploring Indonesia’s lush rainforests and winding rivers is an adventure unto itself. Embark on a multi-day trek through the dense jungles of Sumatra or Kalimantan, looking for elusive wildlife like the endangered Sumatran tiger or the majestic orangutans swinging through the canopy. Cruise along the Mahakam River in East Kalimantan, where traditional Dayak villages and towering granite cliffs create a surreal, otherworldly landscape. Or navigate the black-water tributaries of the Kapuas River in West Kalimantan, drifting past pristine rainforests and experiencing the true essence of Borneo’s wilderness.

Discover Intriguing Indigenous Cultures

Indonesia’s vast archipelago is home to a kaleidoscope of indigenous cultures, each with unique traditions, arts, and ways of life. Spend time with the Toraja people of Sulawesi, renowned for their intricate wood carvings, ancient funeral rites, and distinctive tongkonan houses adorned with vibrant motifs. On the island of Sumba, immerse yourself in the fascinating Marapu culture, where ancient animist beliefs intertwine with daily life, from traditional ikat weaving to iconic stone tombs and ancestral shrines. These cultural encounters offer a rare glimpse into the rich tapestry of Indonesian heritage.

Surf World-Class Waves

With over 90,000 kilometres of coastline, Indonesia is a surfer’s paradise, boasting some of the world’s most sought-after waves and surf breaks. Head to the legendary Bali beaches of Uluwatu, Canggu, and Keramas to ride the perfect barrels and experience the island’s laidback surf culture. Or venture to the remote Mentawai Islands off the coast of Sumatra, where uncrowded waves and consistent swells make it a prime destination for avid surfers seeking untamed surf spots. For beginners, the gentle waves of Lombok’s Kuta and Selong Belanak beaches provide ideal conditions to hone your skills.

Unwind on Idyllic Islands

Indonesia’s myriad idyllic islands offer the perfect escape for tourists looking for their slice of paradise. Bask in the sun on the powder-white beaches of the Gili Islands, a trio of tiny islands off the coast of Lombok, where no motorised vehicles are allowed, creating a serene atmosphere. Explore the turquoise lagoons and lush jungle interiors of the Raja Ampat archipelago, a snorkeler’s and diver’s dream destination. Or embrace the laid-back vibe of the Togian Islands in Central Sulawesi, a remote and unspoiled paradise where time seems to stand still.

With its rich cultural tapestry, diverse natural wonders, and myriad adventures, Indonesia offers unparalleled experiences to suit every traveller’s desires.

Follow these tips to stay respectful and have the best travel experience while in Indonesia:


  • Dress conservatively when visiting religious sites like mosques, temples, or other holy places. Both men and women should cover their legs and shoulders.
  • Remove your shoes before entering homes or sacred spaces.
  • Eat or pass food with your right hand, as the left is considered unclean.
  • Smile and maintain a relaxed, friendly composure. Indonesians value a gentle demeanour.
  • Carry small bills for transactions, as vendors may not have change for extensive notes.
  • Haggle respectfully at markets and when using taxis. There’s an art to polite bargaining.
  • Learn basic Indonesian phrases like “hello,” “thank you,” and “how much?” Locals appreciate guests who try.


  • Raise your voice or lose your temper in public. This causes a significant loss of face.
  • Point with your finger, beckon, or wave to people. Use your right palm instead.
  • Display overt public affection, especially in rural areas. It’s culturally inappropriate.

Discover Indonesia's rich cultural heritage

Discovering Indonesia is a journey filled with spectacular natural sights and cultural heritage. It’s one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world, with over 300 ethnic groups.

Colourful Festivities

Indonesian festivals are famous for their vibrancy. Whether it’s a marriage ceremony or a harvest festival, there’s always colour and excitement. One such festival is Nyepi, the Hindu New Year celebration in Bali, where people stay home and meditate all day. The Grebeg Ritual in Yogyakarta is also a traditional ritual: locals dress traditionally and perform colourful dances for Javanese goddesses. Lastly, the Pasola festival involves Sumba warriors riding horses and throwing bamboo spears at one another.

In Sulawesi, Tana Toraja’s funeral ceremonies occur after someone has passed away. However, this is not your ordinary mournful gathering; it is a celebration of life with extensive rituals and intricately adorned traditional houses.

Tasty Cuisine

Indonesian cuisine is special because it combines Chinese, Indian, Middle Eastern, and European cooking styles. Beef rendang is Sumatra’s speciality, while Nasi Campur, a mixed rice dish from Bali, satisfies any taste buds.

Street food also provides an incredible experience, with bites like barbecued marinated beef on skewers (satay), vegetable salad with peanut sauce (gado-gado), or meatball soup (bakso). If you like fresh fruits in different flavours, try these exotic treats: durian, sweet mangosteen, or snake fruit.

Ancient Traditions

These indigenous societies have preserved old traditions by passing them down through generations within families in Indonesia. In Sumba, people create such exquisite ikat fabric that UNESCO recognises it as a masterpiece. On the other hand, Sulawesi’s Toraja tribe creates marvellous wood carvings and adorns their traditional homes with symbols of forefathers.

Visit some traditional villages to get firsthand information about Bali’s sculptures, jewellery, and paintings.

Architectural Marvels

Indonesian architecture has been shaped by many influences over time. Borobudur Temple, with its 9th-century architecture and magnificent Javanese art, is the world’s largest Buddhist monument. Meanwhile, Prambanan has magnificent Hindu temples that reflect the ancient Mataram Kingdom.

Rice terraces and water temples, like Bali’s Pura Taman Ayun, depict the great respect Balinese people have for nature; this value has deep roots within them.

Make no mistake: immersing yourself in Indonesia’s cultural tapestry during your trip will be nothing short of amazing. From attending vibrant festivals and trying flavorful cuisine to learning from artisans who’ve perfected their craft over time and admiring architectural marvels, your stay here will be epic.
