Search for dragons in Komodo National Park, linger on the Gili Islands’ sugar-white beaches, tackle rapids and rainforests on the epic Cross-Borneo Trek.

Lonely Planet writer David Eimer describes why he loves Indonesia. "Gliding across the Banda Sea, from one stunning island to another, temple-hopping around Yogyakarta, beach-bumming in Bali and Nusa Tenggara, bar-and club-hopping in Jakarta, wishing I had more time to explore the jungles of Kalimantan or wind my way through Sulawesi's mountains. Indonesia is so vast and varied that it's impossible to be bored here. In fact, it's difficult just deciding where to go. And then there are the people, an astonishing mix of races and cultures and all welcoming you with a smile and hello. What's not to love?"
