Welcome to Bali and the rest of wonderful and amazing Indonesia!

Looking for a journey of a lifetime? Business opportunities? Spirituality? Ancient cultures? A jungle trail or a hike to the caldera of a volcano? A tropical place to escape winter? Street food or gourmet?

Indonesia has it all.

  • While in Bali, marvel at the world's third largest statue Garuda Wisnu Kencana at Ungasan village. It's 121 meters tall and 60 meters wide.
  • Always wanted to see the Komodo dragons? Do it now; in 2020 Komodo National Park will be closed to the public all year.
  • The New Yogyakarta International Airport (NYIA) is now open for business.
  • Meanwhile in Jakarta you can finally beat the traffic by riding the brand new MRT (from Lebak Bulus to Hotel Indonesia traffic circle via Fatmawati and Blok M).
