Journey across Indonesia

The world’s fourth most populous country, the Indonesian archipelago is a microcosm of its Southeast Asian and Oceanic neighbours. Encapsulating a kaleidoscope of cultures across 17,000 islands, the country’s varied landscapes range from spectacular beaches to deep jungle, while its arts, customs, cuisines and traditions offer the very best of the surrounding regions, rolled into one.
