A Nation of Islands

Destination Overview

About Indonesia

Indonesia is a nation of islands, and islands beget diversity. Compared to people who live on continents, islanders can’t move very far or often. And, when people’s movements are restricted, social blending is limited, and cultural traits quickly diverge.

Indonesia’s numbers are extraordinary: more than 300 languages throughout roughly 20,000 islands that sprawl over 3000 miles along the Equator! Embark on a very special journey and discover the intoxicating, ever-changing sights and sounds of Java, Bali, Sumatra, and other islands in between.

Thomson Experiences in Indonesia

Behold the magnificent 8th century Borobudur Temple, the largest Buddhist structure in the world. Attend a classical shadow puppet performance, one of the purist and most distinctive of all Indonesian art forms.
Capture all the colors and intricate carvings in a traditional Balinese mask; or the mood of an active volcano; the temple of Borobudur, the world’s largest Buddhist Structure; emerald rice terraces; or Komodo Dragons and Orangutans.
Travel to Sumatra to visit Orangutans, or to the Komodo Islands to walk among real-life dragons: Komodo Dragons. They don’t breathe fire, but these largest-of-all lizards, 10-foot-long carnivores with mouths filled with serrated, fang-like teeth, very much look the part.

Traveling the world with your family is like sharing a box filled with presents. The box is the world itself and the presents are the bonds that form through the experiences we share, and the perspective, patience, understanding, and tolerance we gain from expanding our horizons and seeing how other people live. There is no greater gift.
