Indonesia Holidays,  Indonesia Holiday Packages Overview

With 18,110 islands, Indonesia is the world's largest archipelago. It is also the fourth most populated country in the world today known mostly for Bali, a tropical paradise that has been much loved by visitors. Because of the climate and the size of the country, Indonesia has fascinating biodiversity. It has a large array of coral reef fish and more than 1,500 bird species.

The tropical forests of Indonesia are the second largest after Brazil. It has more than 167 active volcanoes, more than any country in the world. The most accessible today among these are Bali's Mount Batur, Lombok's Mount Rinjani, East Java's Ijen Crater and the Bromo-Tengger-Semeru National Park.

With so many islands, beaches are the main attractions in Indonesia. Other than the most popular beaches of Bali, there are several beautiful beaches in lesser-known locations like Sulawesi, Nusa Tenggara and Maluku. When it comes to beaches, the options are endless in Indonesia.

Indonesia's forests like Sumatra's Tropical Rain Forest Heritage and Western Java's Ujung Kulon National Park are recognized as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO. The Komodo Island in eastern Indonesia is home to diverse marine life and the unique Komodo Dragons.

Indonesia is also home to very unique and distinct cultures that are contained in smaller areas. The Dieng Plateau in Central Java has Indonesia's oldest temple as well as Sangiran's early man excavation site that is recognized as a World Heritage Site.

Bali has a very distinct Hindu Culture dating back to the 13th century. Throughout the island are beautifully decorated temples and many colourful ceremonies. Some of the best temples in Bali are Pura Uluwatu and Besakih.

Indonesia Holidays - Currency of Indonesia

 

Rupiah (IDR) is the official currency and is divided into 100 sen. Foreign currency can easily be exchanged at banks, hotels and money changers in major tourist destinations; US dollars is the most accepted currency. Cash often yields a better exchange rate than travellers cheques, which are not always accepted. It is recommended that travellers cheques also be in US dollars. Most major credit cards are accepted at hotels, restaurants and stores catering to the tourist trade. ATMs are available in main centres. Small change is often unavailable so keep small denomination notes and coins for items like bus fares, temple donations and cool drinks.

 

Indonesia Telephone Access Codes and Communications

 

The international access code for Indonesia is +62. The outgoing code is 001 or 008 followed by the relevant country code (e.g. 00144 for the United Kingdom); it is not necessary to dial the first zero of the area code. City/area codes are in use, e.g. 36 for Bali and 21 for Jakarta. For operator-assisted international calls, phone 101. The local mobile phone operators use GSM networks and have roaming agreements with most international operators. Internet cafes are available in the main towns and resorts.

 

Indonesia Duty Free Allowances & Restrictions

 

Travellers to Indonesia over 18 years do not have to pay duty on 50 cigars or 200 cigarettes or 100g tobacco; alcohol up to 1 litre; perfume for personal use; and personal goods to the value of US$250 per passenger or US$1,000 per family. Travellers not entering on a tourist visa will have to pay duties for photo and film cameras unless these have been registered in their passport by Indonesian Customs. Electronic equipment may not be imported to the country. Prohibited items include Chinese medicines and prints, narcotics, firearms and ammunition, pornography, cordless telephones, fresh fruit or goods to be used for commercial gain.

 

Indonesia Holidays & Packages- Tipping Information

 

Major hotels add a 10% service charge to bills. Where it is not included a tip of between 5% to 10% of the bill would be appreciated. Airport porters usually receive around Rp 2,000 per small bag. Tipping taxi and rental car drivers is not mandatory, but if you do choose to tip, Rp 1,000 is sufficient for taxi drivers and a little more for rental car drivers.
