    About Indonesia

    Did you know Indonesia? Where is Indonesia? Many people around the world didn't know Indonesia. When someone asked about Indonesia to foreign tourists, they'd have said "Bali" because many foreign tourists who are more familiar to hear Bali than Indonesia.

    Indigenous tribes still exist in Borneo to Papua in Eastern Indonesia. The presence of their pagan ancestry can still be seen, heard and felt by those who dare to breach the tourist frontiers.
