Bali is of course where most travelers go to and it remains a popular destination with a good mix of beaches, clubs, shopping, culture and impressive nature. But there is more in Indonesia. The Borobudur is another must see place, but so is Lake Toba (Sumatra), Raja Ampat (Papua), Bonaken National Park (Sulawesi), the white sand beaches of Maluku and we could go on and on.

Try if you are in Indonesia to visit one of the many cultural dance performances. A famous one is the Ramayana Ballet near Prambanan which gives a unique perspective of the rich cultural history of the country.
