From temple visits and meeting indigenous tribes, to seeing wildlife like orang-utan or trekking to the top of an active volcano, Indonesia is a gateway to a variety of memorable places and experiences. It also has a good choice of properties, from small and traditional family properties to some of the finest suites and villas in Indonesia.
