South East Asia

Indonesia facts & history in brief

The Republic of Indonesia is a large archipelago located between the South East Asian peninsula and Australia, between the Indian and Pacific Oceans.
Indonesia borders Malaysia on the island of Borneo, Papua New Guinea on the island of New Guinea and East Timor on the island of Timor.

Indonesia's 17,000 islands (ca. 6,000 are inhabited) are scattered around the equator, giving the country a tropical climate.
The largest islands are Java, where about half of the population lives, Sumatra, Borneo (partially Malaysian), Irian Jaya (western half of New Guinea) and Sulawesi.
Its location on the edges of tectonic plates means Indonesia is frequently hit by earthquakes and the resulting tsunamis.

The capital is Jakarta.

Hui Chin, Endre and I visited Bali during our 1997 trip.

We found Bali, the original tourist destination.

Full of interesting sights and things to do, with a very interesting culture and history.

We've enjoyed our stay.
