Touring Indonesia Made Easy

Traveling through Indonesia could be one of the most rewarding or frustrating experiences someone could come across. Rewarding for the obvious unique and incredible offerings of this amazing country but for one think it would be frustrating trying to plan how to see everything or where to even begin for that matter. Personally, I do not think there is anywhere on the planet that has such an incredible range of wildlife, terrain, culture and attractions as the Land promised.

With over 60000 kilometers of coastline, Indonesia is a natural playground for all things water. Their beautiful beaches provide some of the best surfing in Sumba and Rote Island, sailing, and fishing in the Small Fishing Village at Labuan Bajo. Labuan Bajo also spelled Labuhanbajo and Labuanbajo in Flores is now a busy bustling epicenter of tourism. It is the launching point for trips to Komodo Island and Rinca Island, home to the famous Komodo dragons.

Far away from the allure of the coast but just as fascinating is the Indonesian Outback. Popularized in the prehistoric Komodo dragon, Komodo Island is part of the Komodo Marine reserve with warm swift current diving a feature. The underwater world is teeming with a seemingly endless collage of fish species and coral formation. You will be pleasantly surprised at what you find and ponder the contrast of a barren monotone island above with the sea so full of color below the waterline. If you go to Komodo to see the Dragons, you definitely must dive there also - and vice versa. Enjoy. Komodo diving

Wildlife in Indonesia is a huge draw for any tourist. With over Of the 50 national parks, six are World Heritage Sites, six are part of the World Network of Biosphere Reserves, and three are wetlands of international importance under the Ramsar convention. Nine parks are largely marine.

The first group of five Indonesian national parks were established in 1980 This number increased constantly reaching 41 in 2003. In a major expansion in 2004, nine national parks that are more new were created, raising the total number to 50.

This is List of Indonesia National Park: Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park, Gunung Merbabu National Park, Karimunjawa National Park, Kayan Mentarang National Park, Tanjung Puting, Gunung Rinjani National Park, Kelimutu National Park, Wasur National Park, Lorentz National Park, Bunaken National Park, Wakatobi National Park, Batang Gadis National Park, Gunung Leuser National Park, Kerinci Seblat National Park, and Komodo National Park.

Many of Indonesia's major Sites are situated along the coast providing magnificent scenery while you discover the sights and sounds of Komodo Island, Flores, Sumba, Ancient Alor culture, Rote, Sabu and Timor island just to name a few. During the day, discover museums, markets, theatres and cultural centers and enjoy the excellent cuisine and nightlife in their incredible restaurants, bars and clubs in the evening.

Indonesia is a country brimming with culture, adventure and discoveries. With such a diverse and varied landscape, there is an unlimited choice of possibilities for every style of travel. How can one possibly see all Indonesia has to offer in one vacation? The best way would be an Escorted Tour as this type of travel is geared towards showing you the most in a small amount of time and focusing on the highlights of a destination while throwing in a few hidden gems along the way you wouldn't normally know about. By having a local Tour Guide you are opening yourself up to a more enhanced and insightful experience. To fully travel Indonesia can be overwhelming but a company like Oceania World Travel offers Vacation Packages to Indonesia that will give you peace of mind so you can relax and enjoy this absolutely incredible country.
