Indonesia at a glance

International dialing code
Good to know
Indonesia is a country which is filled with many dichotomies. One of the fastest growing, urban cities (Jakarta) may seem parallel to the vast beauty of the islands. One place to visit is the Borobudur temple, the world's largest Buddhist temple, and encounter Indonesian history perfectly centered on the Javan island. The giant bells sit above the mist covered forests. Much of the temple is covered in carvings which tell the story of karmic laws. In Indonesia, the old and the new flourish equally.
