Indonesia Travel Guides and Tips

Over 17,000 islands and a wide variety of cultures that populate them make Indonesia a country to return to and always discover something new. From minarets soaring to heaven like the clasped hands of a praying man to Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, and the mysterious animist cults of indigenous tribes, such as the Asmat of New Guinea. All this in a landscape that could be a dictionary interpretation of the term “diversity.”

Endless beaches are reminiscent of a tropical paradise, wild fauna and flora, which, for example, in Bali hides a lot of dizzyingly high waterfalls. In Java, sometimes, the sky over the endless rice fields is smoky, rising from the volcanic complex Kwah Ijen, whose highest peak rise to an incredible height of 2799 m. If you ascend to the top, you will find a lake in the crater coloured in the unearthly colour of turquoise and intensive sulfur mining at its edge. In Borneo, you will visit the second oldest rain forest in the world, which is shrinking rapidly due to human activity. Or you can go to another of the thousands of Indonesian islands and just discover.

Indonesia – To the bottom of the crater of active volcano Kawah Ijen

Java, the island of Indonesia, takes pride in two unique things. One of them can be found in the western corner of the country – a very unusual way of sulfur production at the bottom of the active crater of the volcano Kawah Ijen. Another one is the most highly acidic lake in the world. It was created in the crater when the rain and sulfur vapors mixed. The image of this place is fixed in my mind like [...]

The Day when Demons Swarm – The New Year’s Celebrations in Bali

Forget about lively parties. The Balinese are forbidden to make noise or leave their houses. Traditionally, they retire to their homes and pretend there is no living soul on the island.
