The Indonesian Republic
The Indonesian Republic is a country consisting of 17,508 islands in Southeast Asia between Australia and the Asian mainland. With a population of about 237.5 million people, Indonesia is the fourth most populous country in the world, the country with the highest number of Muslims and the world's third largest democracy after India and the United States. It has been held free elections since 1998. Indonesia's capital, Jakarta. It is bordered to Papua New Guinea, East Timor, and Malaysia.

Around 6000 of the country's many islands are inhabited. The six largest and most populated islands are: Sumatra, Java, Sulawesi, Bali, Kalimantan and Irian Jaya.

Over 200 million people inhabit the thousands of Indonesian islands. Over half live on the island of Java, although it only represents six percent of the country's area. Almost all of Indonesia's population is Muslim, and the country has the world's largest Muslim population.

With a beautiful, untouched nature and ancient Buddhist and Hindu temples, it is enough to embark on trips to Indonesia. In Java's cultural stronghold, Yogyakarta, are two of the largest temples, the Buddhist Borobudur and Hindu Prambanan. Bali is Indonesia's only Hindu island and an enchanting acquaintance with colorful Hindu sacrificial ceremonies and beaches that can make any postcards to pale with envy.

Take a boat trip around the many small islands with a local fisherman. Unwind and relax in the Kai Islands between colorful bird swarms of heavenly beaches. Venture out in Sumatra labyrinthine jungle with giant flowers and Sumatran orangutans, found only in this place in the world, or let the camera show what mettle at Kelimutu Lakes.

If the Indonesian holiday will be missing some big city atmosphere, Jakarta is the best option with its energetic vibe and almost insane traffic.
