Tourism in Indonesia - Tourist Board Indonesia - official site
For sheer size, scale and variety, Indonesia is pretty much unbeatable. The country is so enormous that
nobody is really sure quite how big it is; there are between 13,000 and 17,000 islands. It's certainly the
largest archipelago in the world, spreading over 5200 km between the Asian mainland and Australia, all of it
within the tropics and with huge areas of ocean separating the land masses. Not surprisingly, Indonesia's
ethnic, cultural and linguistic diversity is correspondingly great - the best estimate is of 500 languages and dialects spoken by around 200 million people.
The largely volcanic nature of the islands has created tall cloud-swept mountains swathed in the green of
rice terraces or rainforest, dropping to blindingly bright beaches and vivid blue seas, the backdrop for
Southeast Asia's biggest wilderness areas and wildlife sanctuaries. All of this provides an endless resource
for adventurous trekking, surfing, scuba diving, or just lounging by a pool in a five-star resort.
The largest populated islands are Java, where about half of the population lives, Sumatra, Borneo (shared with Malaysia and Brunei), New Guinea (shared with Papua New Guinea) and Sulawesi.

Culture & Traditions, Towns; and Tourism
The Banda Islands (Kepulauan Banda in Bahasa Indonesia) are a group of ten small volcanic islands in the
Banda Sea, about 140km south of Seram island and about 2000km east of Java, and are part of the Indonesian province of Maluku. The capital city is Bandanaira, located on the island of the same name.
The Portuguese navigator Antonio de Abreu was the first European to encounter the islands, in 1512.
Controlling production of nutmeg and mace was a major motivation for the Dutch conquest of the islands in the
1621, led by Jan Pieterszoon Coen. At the time nutmeg was one of the "fine spices" kept expensive in Europe
by disciplined manipulation of the market, but a desirable commodity for Dutch traders in the ports of India as well.

Batik: Fabled Cloth of Java - Brian Brake, Inger McCabe Elliot
Java is a trade-route island, whose 2,000-year-old history has been influenced by a succession of religions
and waves of colonisation by Chinese, Indians, Arabs, Portuguese, Dutch and English. Each left its imprint on
Javanese culture and the development of batik. The author takes the reader on a spellbinding tour of the island and on a discovery of batiks history, motifs, and methods of production.
