Indonesia is a massive country of around 12,500 Islands. Perhaps, another name that comes to mind when thinking about it is the tourist paradise called Bali. And it’s not just Bali - Indonesia has many places to visit, the local cuisine is worth enjoying and so are the people. One cannot help but wonder how a small island country is capable of offering a lot more than one can expect. Unlike other regions of Asia, Indonesia – despite lying in the tropics has only two seasons the dry and the wet –monsoon season. Travelers can happily plan their vacation to this country at any time of the year although it would be much preferred to travel in the dry season from April to October.

Let’s first talk about the Tourist Paradise – Bali – it is known for its golden sand beaches and lush greenery. Rice paddies are in abundance and travelers will be in awe of what this place has to offer to the usual traveler.

Ubudis a place located around 72 km from Bali. It has some great waterfalls, yoga schools and villages that are built from traditional styles. The entire place is rich in natural beauty. Ubud Monkey Forest has many monkey sanctuaries that have inhabited the three Hindu temples lying here. These temple complexes are huge constructed around the mid -14th Century. Looking at this place inhabited by monkeys will surely remind you of Bandar Log from Rudyard Kipling’s Masterpiece– The Jungle Book.

Balinese dancing is well-known around the world and when one comes to Bali for vacation – not watching the artists perform will be your loss. The Kecak Dance as it’s so called has around 150 performers. These dancers perform the local rendition of Ramayana – the Hindu mythology of Lord Ram’s efforts of rescuing his abducted wife Sita from Ravana.

Do you love the seas? What about swimming? What about sea-food? How about both? Weather you eat them or swim with them, it’s your call. These places offer snorkeling in the great coral reefs of Bali. You can explore the massive underwater wildlife and huge treasure of the seas! One you’ve had your mental fill you can finally take your fill with one of the most delicious sea-food around.

If you have visited other countries of the world, you must have explored them in either tourist buses or cars. If you want to explore Bali you won’t need either, just grab a bicycle and leave. Travelers will find ample of such Bicycle tours. The best part of hiring a bicycle tour is that it is slow- so you can take your time in exploring the beauty of this island and allow the feeling to sink in at its own pace.

Komodo Dragon, Indonesia Travel packages, Asia tour
Komodo Dragon
Once you’ve had your fill of Bali, you can move to see the largest lizards on the planet – the Komodo Dragons. The Komodo National Park is designated as UNESCO world heritage site and the lizards are native to this island. These creatures are fierce and slow and have a good amount of patience for capturing their prey. They simply bite their prey and infest them with their toxin containing saliva. The toxicity in the saliva kills the prey in sometime and all the Komodo dragon has to do is smell its dead prey and then feast on it.

Are you thinking that this is the worst way to die? Have you ever heard of Anaconda snakes of the Amazon rain forest suffocating their victims by coiling around them before swallowing whole? Well, now the way these Komodo Dragon kills is surely a nasty way to die!

Indonesia has a lot to offer and in fact you may have to re-visit this country in the future as there are many attractions in the island-country that one should not miss.
