To embrace the Indonesian archipelago is to soak up terraced rice paddies, lush tea plantations, rugged volcanoes, turquoise bays, stunning reefs, and deserted beaches. It's to explore Javanese arts, such as batik making, gamelan playing, and shadow puppetry, and meet the folks who carry on the traditions. It's to delve into the interplay of Hinduism and Buddhism, getting to know their temples and practices. It's spending time with its welcoming people in bustling cities and remote villages. We look forward to taking you in.
