Embrace diversity in the world’s largest archipelago
Comprising more than 17,000 islands, Indonesia is an ethnically and culturally diverse nation with a distinct identity.
The country is home to more than 260 million people – the world’s fourth largest population. Even so, it continues to attract expats in their droves and, with some of the best beaches in the world, turquoise, eminently surfable waves and a super laid-back lifestyle, it’s easy to see why. While some surf-loving expats head for the popular tourist hub of Bali, most end up basing themselves in the capital Jakarta, Indonesia’s political, financial and cultural centre.
