Indonesia is the worldês largest archipelago and consists of over 17,500 islands scattered across the equator. Lying between the Pacific and Indian Oceans, Indonesiaês 54,000km of coastline is a watersports paradise. With secluded beaches and jungles, and a skyline dominated by cone-shaped volcanoes, the opportunities for adventure are limitless.

From cocktail swilling surfer dudes in Bali, to the tribal groups of Papua, Indonesia is home to a diverse range of people, with over 300 distinct ethnic groups populating the country. It has the worldês biggest Muslim population, although Christianity and ancestral beliefs are still celebrated, upholding the national motto •United in Diversityê. As the second most bio-diverse country in the world, Indonesiaês environment is as varied as its people. Over a third of all species are endemic, from the three-metre long Komodo dragon to Borneoês treasured orang-utans and Sulawesiês minute tarsiers.

With the •Ring of Fireê striking directly through the archipelago, Indonesia is home to more active volcanoes than any other country in the world one of the most famous being Krakatoa, which can be seen sometimes electrifying the night sky in Java.
