Indonesia’s thoughts give a feeling of pristine waters surrounding lush green islands with travellers surfing, adrenalin rush, cool breeze and energy. This feels so dreamy. I always love dreaming about a destination like Indonesia. I had gone to a conference organized by OM Tourism for Indonesia at Delhi, hotel Pullman. Although I have visited Indonesia once, but realized there is so much more to do there through the presentation. Below I have described what I learnt.

Why travel to Indonesia

Indonesia is a chosen destination these days as there is a lot of similarity between Indian and Indonesian culture. I myself witnessed Indonesian version of Ramayana in Ubud. It has affordable luxury stays.

There are two types of seasons in Indonesia – Summer and rainy, 700+ dialects, 300+ tribes. Indonesia is now promoting many more of its places.
