Indonesia’s Mount Merapi erupts, forcing 250 residents to flee

An island nation with over 17,000 islands, offers some unique tourist experiences for both adrenaline seekers and those who seek the serene pleasures of the natural beauty that the island has to offer. Here are some of the most unique experiences that Indonesia has to offer to the tourists.

Dragons exist. And while they are not from our fantasies with scales and breathing fire, these dragons are the world’s largest lizards weighing upto 90kgs. The Komodo National Park comprises four islands: Komodo, Rinca, Gili Montang, and Gili Dasami. Here one can observe these dragons in their natural habitat living their lives peacefully and hunting when needed.

The country is located in the Pacific Ring of Fire; this is a region with extremly active volcanoes. In Indonesia tourists can  climb the Mount Rinjani in Lombok, Mount Ijen in East Java, Mount Batur in Bali, and Mount Bromo in East Java. These active volcanoes are fascinating to climb because of the amazing crater views like those at Mount Ijen, where blazing blue flames can be observed at night.

During every funeral a hearty feast is held where buffaloes and pigs are slaughtered and offered to the dead relatives. The deceased are taken to a towering cave for storage. Every year the family members take their loved ones’ bodies, bathe and groom them, and take them around town as if they were still alive. Tourists have even witnessed dead bodies walking on their own, an impressive sight, especially with a backdrop of towering cemeteries and mountain views.

Indonesians love handicrafts and will keenly share this love with the tourists. The tourists can learn to make traditional products, such as batik, silver jewelry, traditional meals, ceramics, and more. Ubud in Bali is a popular place to learn traditional arts, and one-day classes are a great way for tourists to try different activities.

The Borobudur Temple in Central Java is the world’s largest Buddhist temple, added to UNESCO’s World Heritage list in 1991. The enormous 8th century temple complex is packed with religious, cultural, and historical beauty, and is one of the most-visited attractions in Indonesia. The Prambanan Temple in Yogyakarta, one of the biggest Hindu temples in Southeast Asia, with impressive collections of towers and sculptures.
