The Indonesian archipelago and its 17,000 islands boast gargantuan volcanoes enveloped by lush tropical jungle, giving way to soft white sand beaches and a vast expanse of ocean. Above and below the waves the wildlife here is fascinating, from the iconic dragons of the Komodo National Park to Raja Ampat, which has the highest biodiversity of marine life on the planet.
Here at Original Diving we have been lucky enough to travel widely throughout the islands visiting the latest hotels, and checking out the very best dive spots. All in the name of research, naturally.
When it comes to Indonesia diving, there aren't many places on Earth that offer the variety and quality. You could visit time and time again and never get bored. Whether you choose to hunt for the Giant Mola Mola (sunfish) in the waters around Bali, to explore the strong currents and unchartered waters of Raja Ampat or Komodo on a luxury liveaboard, or to experience stunning marine biodiversity in Sulawesi, there is a huge amount on offer. Add to this incredible hotels and service and excellent value for money and it isn't hard to see why Indonesia is one of our favourites.
To land, there is just as much on offer. Whether you're visiting ancient temples, cycling through a local village or reclining by the pool of your luxury hotel, there is plenty to occupy the land-loving traveller.
The message is simple: just go.
