Indonesia doesn’t do anything by halves; it is the world’s largest archipelago and contains the second-largest tropical rainforest in the world with the world's largest flower, a three-foot-wide orchid, and the world's largest lizard, the infamous Komodo dragon - Indonesia's extremes are vast and stupendous. An all-in-one destination, where no two places are the same, Indonesia offers a heady combination of culture, shopping, tropical vistas and scuba-diving. It’s also home to some of the world’s most beautiful beaches and superb hotels.
Formed of an incredible 17,508 islands, Indonesia is a country as wide as the Atlantic Ocean that spans three time zones. It's no surprise that each one offers a wealth of incredible experiences. Where to start? From seeing the active Mount Bromo volcano in central Java, wandering around the colourful streets of Ubud, meeting Orangutans in Kalimantan, to be mystified by ninth-century Buddhist temples, and sailing through a tropical archipelago to hidden beaches... there is so much to experience on Indonesia holidays & honeymoons packages from Dublin.
In Bali you’ll encounter the colourful and vibrant traditions of a special pocket of culture combined with rugged landscapes and the legendary beaches around Kuta. Many of Bali’s beaches are the stuff of tropical dreams – lush and exotic with a creature comfort slice of grandeur thrown in, but venture further and you’ll be rewarded with fascinating wildlife, tall, smoking volcanoes and a deeply ingrained and vibrant local culture forged by tribes and tradition. Artistic Ubud is very cool and known as a centre for traditional crafts and dance, so it is well worth a visit, but Indonesia’s trump card is the presence of lesser known islands like Flores and Sulawesi that still offer that rare opportunity to tread where few others have.
For those willing to look beyond the beaches of Bali, the vast archipelago of Indonesia is a treasure trove of stunning landscapes, fascinating monuments and intriguing local cultures. The most popular islands are Sumatra and Java where you will meet Orangutans in the rainforests and discover the traditional villages of the Batak people, rich in heritage and customs. Marvel at the vast temples of Borobudur and Prambanan, and experience local life in the markets of Yogyakarta. One of the highlights is a trip to the steaming volcanic crater of Mt Bromo, one of Indonesia’s natural wonders. Discover the charms of this hidden corner of South East Asia with cheap holiday packages to Indonesia.

Try ‘nasi goreng’ – fried rice, ‘pecel lele’ – fried fish or ‘sambal’ – hot, tangy and sweet sauce, served with most of food.
