INDONESIA TRAVEL GUIDE
Plan your trip to Indonesia
Indonesia is located in Southeast Asia, between the Indian and Pacific oceans. This collection of more than 17,000 islands hides many natural wonders. In recent years it has become one of the most visited countries in Asia. Places like Lombok, the Gili Islands, Komodo, Flores, Borneo and Raja Ampat attract many tourists every year.
However, there is an island in Indonesia that stands out above the rest. I am talking about Bali! Unlike the rest of the country which is Muslim, Bali has its own religion, Balinese Hinduism. Religion plays a primary role on the island’s culture, which you can see in its temples, ceremonies and offerings.
