How far will my money go throughout Indonesia?

Indonesia is a vast and diverse country, and the cost of living can vary greatly depending on where you go. In general, though, Indonesia is a very affordable destination, and your money can go a long way here.

In popular tourist destinations like Bali or Jakarta, you can expect to pay more for accommodation and activities than you would in less-visited areas. However, even in these places, you can still find budget options that offer excellent value for money. If you're willing to eat like a local, take public transport, and stay in budget accommodations, you can easily travel around Indonesia on a shoestring budget.

Of course, if you have more money to spend, there are plenty of luxury options available too. Whether you're looking for a high-end beach resort or a private villa in the jungle, Indonesia has something to offer for every budget. And with the help of Ramsdens' currency exchange service, you can be sure you're getting the best value for your money. So, whether you're a budget traveller or a luxury seeker, Indonesia is a destination where your money can go a long way.

Things to do in Indonesia 

Indonesia is a country with a diverse culture and stunning natural beauty. There are many things to do and see while travelling in Indonesia, from exploring ancient temples to relaxing on pristine beaches. One of the top attractions is Bali, known as the Island of the Gods, which is famous for its picturesque rice terraces, Hindu temples, and luxurious resorts. Visitors can also experience the local culture by attending traditional dance performances and trying authentic Indonesian cuisine. For those looking for adventure, Bali offers a wide range of outdoor activities such as hiking, surfing, and snorkeling.

Another must-see destination in Indonesia is Yogyakarta, a city located in central Java that is known for its rich history and art. Visitors can explore ancient temples such as Borobudur, a UNESCO World Heritage site that dates back to the 9th century, and Prambanan, a Hindu temple complex that is one of the largest in Southeast Asia. Yogyakarta also has a vibrant arts scene, with many galleries showcasing contemporary and traditional Javanese art. The city is also famous for its batik, a technique of wax-resist dyeing that produces intricate patterns on fabric.

For nature lovers, Indonesia offers a range of landscapes, from tropical rainforests to active volcanoes. One of the most popular destinations is Komodo National Park, located in the eastern part of Indonesia. The park is home to the famous Komodo dragon, the world's largest lizard, as well as pristine coral reefs and stunning beaches. Visitors can go snorkeling or diving to see the diverse marine life or take a boat tour to explore the islands. Other outdoor activities in Indonesia include hiking to the top of Mount Bromo, an active volcano on the island of Java, and exploring the Tegalalang Rice Terrace in Bali.
