Gap Year in Indonesia

If you spent 35 years exploring one island per day, you still wouldn’t have covered Indonesia – a breathtaking archipelago of 13,000 islands. This glorious continent is a cultural melting pot with Chinese, Dutch, and Malay influences wafting around enticingly. From gorgeous Lombok to the cosmopolitan capital Jakarta, Indonesia’s full of places to visit – and remember forever.

You’ll probably fly in to Jakarta, the capital; from here it’s easy to continue your journey. On the main islands of Bali and Java you’ll find the buses regular, if a little frightening; just jump onto one of dozens of motor boats serving Indonesia’s 1500 inhabited islands.
