The numbers astound you: 17000 islands (or is it 20,000?), 8000 inhabited (or is it 11000?), 300 languages spoken (or is it 400?). The list goes on. The world’s fourth most populated country, INDONEASIA - 240 million and counting - is a sultry kaleidoscope that runs along the equator for 5000km. It may well be the last great adventure on earth.
From the western tip of Sumatra to the eastern edge of Papua is a nation that defies homogenization. A land - of so many cultures, peoples, animals, customs, plants, features, artworks and food - that feels like a hundred countries moulded into one (or is it two hundred?). Venturing through the islands of Indonesia you’ll see a land as diverse and unusual as those living upon it. View Sumatra from the air and be humbled by a legion of nearly 100 volcanoes marching off into the distance, several capable of blowing up at any given time.
