Breathtaking Photos That Will Make You Fall Crazily in Love With Indonesia

Indonesia is a simply astounding country. More than 17,000 islands (of which a staggering 8,000 remain uninhabited), over 300 languages and some of the most diverse landscapes on the planet make up this beguiling country of adventure, mystery and intrigue.

With 255 million people and counting, Indonesia is the world’s fourth-most-populous country. Its people represent a kaleidoscope of cultures that are radically different from those you’ll find on other continents. Here, every island, every city and every village has a unique mix of men, women and children who, over time, have intrigued visitors with the mysteries of their very spiritual culture. In essence, with a country that encompasses so many customs, cultures and peoples, many could argue that this place is like 1,000 countries meshed into one.

Oh, and if you love nature, you’re going to the right place. Ask anyone and they’ll tell you dramatic sights are the norm here. From Mount Bromo to the UNESCO-listed Komodo National Park, this forever enchanting, intoxicating land offers the greatest experiences on Earth. Venturing across this great nation, you’ll stumble across the most epic landscapes, as diverse and as as rich as the people living throughout them. Think hundreds of fiery volcanoes, ancient temples, magical rice fields, glittering beaches and towering waterfalls spread far and wide between vast and exceptionally cosmopolitan cities, and you’ll have an inkling of what it’s like.

Wherever you go, there’s so much to see – the sublime orangutans chilling in a tree, the artful Balinese dancers, the idyllic and pristine beaches, and the ultra-cool, ultra-glam malls of Jakarta. Sold yet?

If you’re still unconvinced, take a look at these 21 glorious photos below. We guarantee that by the time you reach the end, you will have fallen crazily in love with Indonesia.
