Vacation rentlas in Indonesia are more ofthen than not, just as aestheticlaly striking as their natural surroundings.

Colonial architecture and a number of museums like the Indonesian National Museum, with a superior numismatic collection, are well worth your time. If you don’t have time to visit all of the thousands of Indonesian Islands, try Indonesia in Miniature Park, or Taman Mini. Here, you will get a glimpse of all of the 27 provinces of Indonesia, scaled down. Incredible architectural replicas exist in this carefully designed park.

What about Bali vacation rentals? The tropical paradise of Bali beckons millions of vacationers with Balinese culture, and water sports galore. Get your fill of scuba diving, surfing, windsurfing, white water rafting, and sailing. The underwater world includes rare oceanic sunfish. Meet the Balinese people through their unique blend of various arts and architecture. Bali vacation rentals definitely rise to the top!

The Borobudur Temple, an outstanding monument to Mahayana Buddhism, is located on the island of Java. West Java has several alluring resorts, the mighty Krakatoa Volcano, and a wildlife reserve. See the sun rise from the peak of the Promo Volcano in East Java, or take in a unique bull race on nearby Madura Island. Appreciate Javanese culture and dance at its best in Yogyakarta. North Sumatra is bursting with flora and fauna to see and enjoy. A popular highlands tourist spot is Bukittingi in West Sumatra. Visit the Grand Mosque in Aceh, and peer at the raffelsia, the biggest flower worldwide, in a national park in Lampung.

Kalimantan consists of the southern part of Borneo Island. A quest down the Makaham river system in East Kalimantan can result in a fascinating journey, seeing trees with wild orchids, and some wildlife. Visit places like the Regional Museum of Palangkaraya, and the gold mines in Teweh and Batu Api in the central region. Artifacts such as stone carvings and ceramics appear to date back to the 400s in the west region, and arts and culture reign in the South, with handicrafts and art, dance, and music.

Enjoy the fine scenery in South Sulawesi, as well as great water sports in Ujung Pandang, and the Tomb of Sultan Hasnuddin’s enormous crypt. North Sulawesi has pristine white-sand beaches and stunning coral reefs seemingly juxtaposed with majestic mountains and active volcanoes. In Southeast Sulawesi, take note of the very friendly locals, even more pristine beaches, and excellent flora and fauna sightseeing opportunities.

West Nusa Tenggara includes the islands of Lombok, with marsupial and parrots as part of the wildlife, and Sumbawa, with traditional sailboats made in the port town of Sape. East Nusa Tenggara three main islands as part of its group: Flores, Sumba, and Timor. Flores is a beautiful, European-cultured island, and see the horses in Sumba and the huge tombs and hut architecture in West Sumba. Take a fresh breath in the lovely scenery of Timor.

Maluku, with its thousand islands, are also known as the Spice Islands. The capital of Ambon is ripe with historical and cultural sites. Irian Jaya is home to General Douglas MacArthur’s headquarters in World War II, and the lake with nary a tourist, Lake Sentani.
