Indonesia from Djarkata to Bali

Indonesia in Southeast Asia consists of thousands of volcanic islands just like its neighbor, the Philippines. With hundreds of ethnic groups and numerous languages, not to mention some of the last original and relatively undisturbed tribes still living in the large expanses of jungle, Indonesia has, to put it mildly, a huge variety of cultural experiences to offer the visitor.

How many islands are there in Indonesia

The islands of Indonesia, also known as the Indonesian archipelago and formerly known as the Indian archipelago, may refer either to the islands comprising the nation-state of Indonesia or to the geographical groups which include its islands. According to the Indonesian Coordinating Ministry for Maritime Affairs, of 17,508 officially listed islands within the territory of the Republic of Indonesia. THis number can easily change as it did in the Philippines. Here they found ca. 400 islands more recently putting the total way past 7000.

Nature in Indonesia

This is also true of its natural wonders: There is so much to see.  The contrast between its often pristine, white beaches and deep jungle is as striking as the amazing variety of wildlife they support – from the poisonous Komodo dragon, which can be several meters long, to the herds of wild elephants that roam freely in Sumatra.
