Indonesia is a nation renowned for its cultural diversity. A vast archipelago, it is comprised of some 17,000 islands and is home to over three hundred ethnic and religious groups.
From Sumatra in the east to Papua in the west, there are so many places to explore in this fascinating country.
Natural wonders abound in Indonesia, including spectacular volcanoes and serene beaches. And while the locations are beautiful in themselves, they are all the more amazing for being home to diverse and unique ecosystems and wildlife.
Only in Indonesia can you see the orangutans at home in the jungles of Sumatra or see (and smell) Komodo dragons in their natural environment.
Indonesia is home to 245 million people, making it the fourth largest country in the world. Such a vast and diverse population makes for a cultural richness, but also presents some obstacles.
The spread of development in Indonesia has been uneven, and there remain vulnerable groups of people living in poverty.
Growing urbanisation means that access to housing will become a major challenge for Indonesia in the coming years. The current housing backlog in Indonesia is estimated at 6 million houses and is projected to rise by 1 million houses every year, with an additional 15 million classed as sub-standard.
