Discover the magnificence of stunning Indonesia

Are you ready for the trip of a lifetime? Indonesia offers the sights and sensations that would delight all types of travelers, whether it's the white-sand beaches of Bali or the rich cultural nest of Jakarta. Sitting between the Indian and Pacific Oceans, Indonesia boasts over 13,000 islands! That's a lot of exploring to be done, and no matter where your feet take you, you're sure to make plenty of fun-filled memories. Take your pick from Indonesia's vacation rentals and get ready to immerse yourself in the local culture and lifestyle.

Activities

Indonesia will have you wandering in wonder

It might be most well known for the excitement of Bali, but Indonesia is full of activities that range from walking in the beautiful temples of Yogyakarta to spending fun-filled hours in the shopping centers and theme parks of Jakarta. You might enjoy the Gili Islands just further east of Lombok, where diving and snorkeling offer the vibrant colors of marine wildlife. If you'd rather keep your hair dry, island hopping can provide seascapes that will surely inspire your inner photographer. Alternatively, you could cut your own path through the crystalline waters of the Raja Ampat region near Papua.

Weather

Indonesia goes from mild to wild

Indonesia's weather generally splits into wet and dry seasons, much like other tropical locations. Expect a steady 82 degrees throughout the year, with dryness spanning from May to September. During the wet season that occurs from October to April, you'll find that Indonesia vacation rentals offer better deals as people avoid the muddy outback roads that can hinder hiking activities. There are exceptions to the year-round tropical heat, such as the well known Mt. Bromo and the mountain regions in general, where temperature can dip to as low as 48 during the night.

Natural features

Indonesia blurs the line between nature and architecture

Indonesia's abundance of volcanoes, along with its rich soil and humid climate, produce some of the most fertile land on Earth. You'll find evidence of this in the incredible variety of flowers that envelope most of the temple sites. This also leads to the highest concentration of mammals in the world, such as monkeys, tigers, elephants, and apes, so you won't be lacking any photo opportunities. If you really want to get up close and personal with the wildlife in their natural habitat, consider seeking Indonesia vacation rentals close to the country's numerous national parks.
