Indonesia has a bit of everything for everyone. Whether you’re looking to experience the palm-fringed beaches and nightlife in Bali, climb the volcanoes in Java, or brave a trek in the deep jungles of Sumatra, Indonesia truly is a hidden gem.
If you’ve ever planned a holiday in Indonesia, you’ve probably been drawn to Bali. In fact, TripAdvisor awarded Bali as “best destination” winner of the 2017 Travelers’ Choice Awards, and that’s no surprise as Bali has so much to offer its visitors. For starters, there’s plenty of nightlife (if that’s your scene), beautiful white-sand beaches, lush jungles filled with amazing wildlife, not to mention the hard-to-beat culinary scene.
If you’re looking to take the road less travelled (and a little less touristy), visit the island of Sumatra. Sumatra is the wild, rugged hotspot for adventure and one of the only places in Indonesia where you can still see wild orangutans. If wildlife is on your list, you can’t miss exploring Gunung Leuser National Park, which is home to an abundance of wildlife, including monkeys, variety of bird species and most importantly, orangutans.
Whatever activities you have planned on your trip to Indonesia, it’s important to consider your travel health and ensure you come home with nothing but the best of memories.
