Indonesia

The Republic of Indonesia is the largest island nation in the world, with over 17,000 islands all told. Indonesia is probably most famous for Bali, with its beaches, jungles, yoga retreats, and internet cafes. However, Indonesia is also home to other tropical destinations, like the Gili Islands, as well as the capital city of Jakarta, with a population nearing ten million. 

QUICK INDONESIA FACTS

Currency: Indonesian rupiah can be withdrawn from ATMs throughout Indonesia, however keep in mind that smaller cities or towns may not have access to ATMs and its recommended to withdraw cash and take it with you.

Power Points: Most power points are the same as most other European power points (2 circular prongs). Obviously I would recommend you take a Travel Adapter especially for non Europeans.

Official Language: The official language of Indonesia is Indonesian.

Health: There are some health concerns in Indonesia for travellers such as Polio reported in Papua Province, drink poisoning, rabies, measles, Insect-borne illnesses (zika, dengue, malaria). Waterborne, foodborne, parasitic and other infectious diseases are widespread and people are cautioned on getting tattoos and henna tattoos while in indonesia. I would recommend that you contact your doctor a few weeks before you travel as in some cases you need to start any medication a few days before your trip or you may need to get a vaccination. The tap water is not considered to be safe to drink, only drink bottled water.
