A sprawling archipelago of over 18,000 islands, Indonesia offers countless opportunities for the intrepid explorer in which to 'get off the map'. Renowned as a world-class surfing and diving destination, Indonesia doesn't disappoint when it comes to its underwater life. With its coral coasts teeming with wildlife (including graceful manta rays and inquisitive turtles), this truly is an incredible destination. With its expanses of white sand and a seemingly endless azure ocean, Raja Ampat is perhaps the best place to explore Indonesia's waters, making Indonesia a truly brochure-worthy destination.
Back on land, Indonesia is still as fascinating. With its verdant rainforests, a backdrop of rolling vistas, powerful rivers and majestic mountainscapes, Indonesia is certainly an impressive location. From the lush jungles of Indonesian Borneo (resplendent with unique species of endemic wildlife) to the hustle and bustle of its cultural capital Jakarta, Indonesia its deserving of your time during any visit to South East Asia. Being a volunteer in Indonesia really gives you the chance to see a side of this incredible country that few others get to see, as well as enabling you to make a difference to the wildlife found here.
