Introduction to Indonesia
Indonesia goes by the official name of the Republic of Indonesia. It is the largest island country in the world with regards to the amount of islands, having over 14,000 islands. The estimated population found in this amazing location is over 255 Million, making Indonesia the 4th most populous country and the most populous country with a Muslim majority. The island of Java has about 51% of this country’s population.

Kalimantan offers visitors uncharted jungles which is a perfect location for those looking for an adventure. Bali is the most popular tourist destination in Indonesia and offers some of the world’s most stunning beaches and tropical landscape.
Best Time to Travel to Indonesia
Indonesia only has two seasons, the dry and the wet. The dry season usually occurs from April to September. During this time, the weather is not very humid but it is generally not as comfortable as it is during the wet season. There are still occasional rainy days in the dry season. The wet season goes from October to March, bringing with it a lot of humidity and frequent torrential downpours.
For the corporate traveler, heading to Indonesia during this wet season generally means that fares and accommodations will be cheaper. It may not be ideal for outdoor team building exercises, but a great option for groups on a budget.
