As the commercials of Wonderful Indonesia have been seen on the buses in London and Australia, the proud feeling emerged to my mind. It is true, because the nature, the culture, the people, the food, and every such unique things of my country will always value the money of the tourist has spent here.
Since Ministry of Tourism Indonesia announces its tagline Wonderful Indonesia at 2011, my Indonesia has never stopped enthralling. Annually, any new tourist destination in Indonesia always unfold. And all of these places are always worth to visit.
Beaches are easily found in my country. Indonesia has the second longest coastline on the world, and I still can see fishermen anywhere threw their nets from the shore for catching fish. Indonesia’s weather is mostly sunny through the year, so we enjoy the warm weather on the beach all the time.
Indonesia had a lot of mountain, some of them are volcanoes, and some of them are still active. The slopes of the mountain are used for plantation, and many of them evolve into tourist attraction. Some volcanoes even turn out panoramic, and I relish wandering around there by riding any horse or jeep.
Those volcanoes in Indonesia made my land was fertile to develop forests. A lot of forest even was large enough to become national park for endangered trees conservation, and also vast lair for rare animals. One of those scarce species, komodo which only lives in Indonesia, even has been declared by National Geographic as wonder of the world.
There are thousand ethnics in my country, its amount is as much as total ethnics in Europe. This creates different cultures in every single area of Indonesia which is unearthed endlessly, reflected on various styles of house, exotic dances, outfits, and even the way they live.
The specialty of Indonesian food is its spices, probably due to many various herbs harvested in Indonesia’s land. Everytime I ask foreign travelers about their most favorite Indonesian food, they always answer nasi goreng. And Indonesian can’t savor their meals without sambal, which is hard to be found in any other countries.
I believe that some travelers are interested more in cooling off at their hotels, either by sunbathing, jogging around the park, or being pampered in spa. Me, too, and I am glad that now resorts are available on the whole country to spoil their guests. Indonesia’s friendliness has been renowned since a while, and the resort staffs unfold it well.
My Indonesia has been a home for lots of kingdom and also a territory for lots of colonial authorities. This is why the (hi-)story of Indonesia is always fascinating to learn about. Historical sites such as temples, monuments, and museums are obtainable in every province. And I’m always excited to recommend any local tour guides to escort every explorers who love stories about this unique nation.

It is easy to attain Indonesia from everywhere. Most tourists fly from throughout the world to my country directly from everywhere, especially from Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong, and Amsterdam. Bali has been always the main place of interest, but anyway, you can go to any other places in Indonesia and set your arrival date by clicking Wonderful Indonesia.
