Indonesia is a country defined by its numbers: it spans more than 3,000 miles; is made up of 18,110 islands; and speaks more than 300 languages. It’s also the fourth most populous country in the world, yet only 6,000 of its islands are inhabited. All of these factors make Indonesia the largest archipelago in the world and therefore one of the best island-hopping destinations for leisurely sojourners. Indeed, luxury travel to Indonesia is an invitation to travel its clear, blue waters on a private boat, trek the lush-jungle covered islands sheltering elephants, tigers, and Komodo dragons, and dive below the refreshing waters of the Southeast Asian seas to discover colorful schools of fish. For some of the best diving in the world, the shores off the Raja Ampat islands are second to none.
With so many islands making up one country, it’s no wonder why Indonesia is a melding of many different cultures, peoples, customs, and animals. Each island offers travelers something unique and altogether unbelievable. Bali is the quintessential island paradise and a legend in its own right, outfitted with a varied landscape of hills, mountains, rice terraces, volcanic hillsides, and of course its famed sandy beaches where relaxation and island adventures are king. Java, however, serves as the heart of Indonesia with 120 million people inhabiting the island, making it the world’s most populated island and one of the most densely populated areas in the world. Java is perfect for the adventure traveler, with ancient monuments, volcanoes, national parks, rainforest, and large, bustling cities. In contrast, Indonesia Borneo is sparsely populated, but incredibly rich with biodiversity. It is home to one of the oldest rainforests in the world, with 221 species of mammals, 420 species of birds, 3,000 species of trees, and about 15,000 species of flowers.
