Advantages: great number...
I have been living in the archipelago for years now & still regard it as 1 of the most wonderous palce that God ever made. It may not be like that of the Garden of Eden, but close enough though. The country is made up of more than 13, 000 islands & these could fit across the atlantic from UK to the States in length!! 5 major island can be spotted easily & they are Sumatra, Java, Kalimantan, Sulawesi & Irian Jaya.
Indonesia is full of unpolluted nor marred paradise across the islands & thus it's name. For those who love wildlife, palce that 1 should visit are the rainforests & jungles in Kalimantan & parts of Sumatra. & those who love montainous views may visit, Bromo, Irian Jaya. Diving is a great sport for uncultivated sea or ocean corals & they may check Manado out. for a start Many people from the western world love to see the activities of tribal civilisation whereby they may visit Kalimantan & irian Jaya.
Komodo dragon, 1 of the endangered species are found in the Komodo island. Irian Jaya is also famous for its Bird of Paradise, another endangered bird. Beautiful beaches are they for those who love them to enoy, located in teh thousand islang region north of Java island.
The people are friendly enough to take tourist around so not to worry & food, accomodation is truly cheap. Ranging from 10's of pounds onwards & transport are assessible in many ways. Local tour are avaible readily almost at any time.
There exist wide range of cultures whereby at each region of the archipelago do have its own unique style of making things, dialects, food & habits. Spice is always a must to any individual & such can be found mostly in the islands of Maluku, between Sulawesi & Irian Jaya.
Religion also do play a part in Indonesia whereby the Majority are Muslims, then next in line, Christianity & Buddhism, Hinduism.
Last but not least, welcome to Paradise of the East!!
