Destination: Indonesia

  • Travelling there: Indonesia is well connected to the rest of the world with multiple airlines servicing its two main gateways — Jakarta's Soekarno-Hatta International Airport (CGK) and Bali's Ngurah Rai International Airport or Denpasar International Airport (DPS).
  • Capital city: Jakarta.
  • Population: 258.493 million.
  • Religion: Indonesia has freedom of religion, but has six official ones: Islam, Protestantism, Catholicism, Hinduism, Buddhism and Confucianism.
  • Language: Indonesian.
  • Currency: Indonesian rupiah (IDR).
  • Climate: Straddling the equator, Indonesia’s climate is tropical — hot with very high humidity — and wet and dry seasons. There are periodic short rain showers even in the dry season.
  • Transport: Bemo (public minibuses) and taxis are probably the most common form of transport around town and inter-city. In cities, Ojek (motorcycle riders), becak (three-wheeled carts) and taxis abound. Commuter rail exists in very few cities.
  • Best time to travel: Roughly speaking, the weather in Indonesia is split into wet and dry seasons, of which May to September is dry. The dry season coincides with peak tourist season.
  • What to wear: While dress-sense is casual here, be conservative — especially when visiting temples. Take into consideration the heat and humidity — lightweight, natural fabrics will be more comfortable. If visiting the mountains, carry a jumper. Be prepared for sudden rain bursts. Avoid wearing shorts or swimwear outside resort areas.
