More about destination guide
Aside from beaches, Indonesia is home to 167 active volcanoes, far more than any other country, and also has some of the largest remaining areas of tropical forests in the world, covering more than 98 million hectares. Packed with exotic wildlife - ranging from tigers and rhinoceros to orangutans and rare bird species – some of the forests have even been recognised as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including Ujung Kulon National Park and the Tropical Rainforest Heritage of Sumatra.
A visit to Indonesia’s capital of Jakarta, located on the northwest of Java Island, is also worthwhile. The city has developed into a leading economic, cultural and political centre, offering modern attractions such as restaurants, shopping centres, hotels and entertainment, together with cultural landmarks including the Presidential Palace, National Gallery of Indonesia, Merdeka Square and the National Monument.
