Indonesia, officially the Republic of Indonesia, is an archipelago comprising 13,466 islands. It encompasses 33 provinces and 1 Special Administrative Region. With the population of over 238 million people, Indonesia is world's fourth most populous country.
Lies between latitudes 11°S and 6°N, and longitudes 95°E and 141°E, Indonesia consists of 17,508 islands. These are scattered over both sides of the equator. The largest are Java, Sumatra, Borneo, New Guinea, and Sulawesi.
At 1,919,440 square kilometers (741,050 sq mi), Indonesia is the world's 15th-largest country in terms of land area and world's 7th-largest country in terms of combined sea and land area. There are around 300 native ethnic groups in Indonesia, and 742 different languages and dialects.
Those hundreds of ethnic groups, each with cultural identities developed over centuries, are influenced by Indian, Arabic, Chinese, and European cultures. Traditional Javanese and Balinese dances, for example, contain aspects of Hindu culture and mythology. Textiles such as batik, ikat, ulos and songket are created across Indonesia in styles that vary by region.
Not only that, Indonesia is also famous for its beautiful sceneries: majestic mountains, virgin beaches, green paddy fields, and the bluest of oceans. Those factors above has make Indonesia a famous travel destination.
