Indonesia Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 66%, Indonesia has for generations been one of the world's ultimate backpacking destinations. From the moment you set foot on Indonesian soil, you're destined for adventure. What else would you expect from an archipelago comprised of thousands of islands spread over the entire length of the East Indies? Starting in the west you have the breathtakingly beautiful jungles of Sumatra, where you can visit Sepilok Orangutan Sanctuary, one of last remaining habits of this endangered primate. Hopping aboard ferry east, you'll eventually reach the capital of Jakarta, where you'll find one of the most culturally important cities in the world. UNESCO will become your catchphrase when you visit such places as Borobudur, one of the world's greatest monuments to Buddhism. Make the next hop to the classic island of Bali, which to most is synonymous with exotic. Whether it's partying until dawn or shopping till you drop, Bali's got it all. But when you're in Indonesia, there always another island to visit and one of the most exciting is Komodo Island, where you can get up close and personal with a real life dragon! When you've finally worked your way as far west as you can possibly get, just turn around and head back the way you came, because you're sure to have missed a few islands that are in need of exploration!
