Indonesia straddles the equator, encompassing over 17,000 islands, two-thirds of which are inhabited. Perhaps the most apt description for this colourful country is as 'an attack on your senses'.

With a population of 245.5 million, the archipelago is a melting pot of creeds and cultures and is the most heavily populated Muslim country on the planet. Enjoying the best of both worlds, the country's fertile plains and portrait-worthy landscape are contrasted by the mainland's constant surge into modernity, evidenced by urban sprawl and development in the larger cities.
