March 17, Ignorance by Content and Omission - No thinking person should take any government at its word, especially this one. Governments lie in part because they represent special interest groups rather than the ordinary citizens that comprise the great majority. Most governments fear and loath its citizens because they are clandestinely betraying them. The less transparent the government, the more it has to hide.
Indonesia Miss at your peril - 'Highlight of Independent Travel with some work and right attitude ' Intro: Indonesia represents an enormous area to explore, with most travellers focusing only on small parts.
Its islands offer fabulously varied scenery, from volcanoes to idyllic beaches and desert. Equally Indonesia is no Thailand and those looking for universally easy transport and Southern Bali aside a party atmosphere, will be sadly disappointed.
A long standing if not the longest traveller favourite and firmly on the South East-Asian 'Banana Pancake Trail', Indonesia in general is probably the most varied country in the region.
Few however get past Bali and near-by Islands. It is certainly true that when many think of Indonesia they think of Bali, the 'jewel-in-the crown' of the Indonesian tourist industry.
Bali does have much to offer from a place to kick back, the fabulous Ubud to great sweeping beaches and excellent waves. However, on the whole it represents everything Indonesia is not and in its blackest spots Kutahosts some of the worst tourists you will find anywhere.
Bali is not to be missed, but is not a good reflection of Indonesia. Nevertheless away from the small island of Bali it has to be noted that there are huge chunks of Indonesia that are not only a pain to get too, but have limited facilities for visitors and are of not much interest compared to other parts of South East Asia.
At the end of the day many just prefer Thailand although Indonesia is better value and less crowded. You will meet many who don't really care for Indonesia, undoubtedly these will be people who stayed in the tourist centres of Bali, Java and the Gilis and got more than their fair share of hassle, crowds, scams and overcharging.
In Sumatra everyone you meet will love it. Indonesia ranks to the lofty heights of destinations such as India, Mexico and Morocco - places you can always return and find more. Others like Indonesia simply because it is not Thailand and has a greater sense of adventure attached to it.
Nevertheless this is still South-East Asia and has the same flavours and same kind of travellers as elsewhere in the region. Some will love it, others will be slightly disappointed. With the same common sense that needs applying everywhere, there is no problem with terrorism at least; there are always dangers wherever you are, from buses, boats, etc.
At the time of the bombings, some governments advised not travelling to Bali even South East Asia - crazy advice. Not spending any time in Kuta or Jakarta is better advice - bomb or no bomb! No tourism will literary kill many parts of this nation.
Indonesia is not the Middle East or anything like it. That said parts - namely Aceh - are far more Islamic than others. Although it might look Islamic, it feels undoubtedly South-East Asian.
Indonesia has suffered great upheaval in the last ten or so years - everything from peaceful demonstrations to armed conflict. However, the situation in Indonesia is often exaggerated by western media, making it seem like the whole place is in turmoil.
There has been problem in areas of Aceh, Central Sulawesi Province especially Palu, Poso and TentenaMaluku Province especially AmbonPapua and West Papua, all of which have experienced unrest in the past, but as we write this are calm and typically life is simple. Indeed Ache has become a recent travellers favorite with almost off of the recent problems behind the region.
