Discovering new destinations is a way out of the routine. When we make a trip and have a great time, our first thought is to repeat it in the coming year, to feel the same. We must open up, leave our comfort zone, and enjoy all the wonders that the world offers us.
In Indonesia you will have the opportunity to know new environments and cultures, which will give as results some experiences that you will not be able to forget.
Next we will highlight some places you should visit in Indonesia, but first of all I want to remind you of the importance of hiring Medical Tourism in Indonesia a travel medical insurance.
As I have said on more than one occasion, travel insurance is essential and can prevent an unforeseen event from becoming a real nightmare during our trip. They can indeed make our trip a bit more expensive, but nowadays these types of insurance have very affordable prices and there is no excuse for not traveling with complete peace of mind. Remember that your coverage can resolve any inconvenience that may occur in our trip, whether related to medical issues, loss of luggage, cancellations, legal assistance, etc.
And with that said let’s talk a little bit about things we can do in Indonesia.

5 Places you should know in Indonesia
Island of Bali
The island of Bali is one of those essential places that we must know in our trip. It stands out for its combination of exotic beauty with a thousand-year-old mysticism that drives tourists crazy.
It has even won several awards, as it is a wonderful destination for those who seek to enjoy new landscapes, immerse themselves in new cultures and meet new people.
Our visit to Bali will help us to reconnect with nature, to do activities such as surfing or diving, to admire the marine flora and fauna and, above all, to keep the day-to-day stress at bay.
Komodo National Park
The Komodo National Park is a very stimulating experience that children and adults will enjoy. It is a very popular attraction due to the large number of species it houses inside, such as the famous Komodo dragon (which is considered today as the largest lizard in the world, and why the park receives its peculiar first name).
This National Reserve is located in the islands of Sonda (composed by Komodo, Padar, Rincah, and other 26 islands but of a smaller size).
We assure you that a visit to the park will leave your mouth open.
Lake Toba is located on the island of Sumatra. It is a side of volcanic origin that has an extension of 100km (long) x 30km (wide). Experts say it was formed due to an eruption 70,000 years ago.
But the most interesting part of this part of the island is that there is something hidden in the center of the lake: An island! It is about the island Pulau Samosir, in which there are two lakes.
That is to say, we can visit a lake with an island in its interior in which there are two lakes. It may be a little complicated to understand, but we assure you that the experience will enchant you.
The Gili Islands make up an archipelago consisting of the Gili Meno, Gili Trawangan and Gili Air islands. The main characteristic of these 3 islands is their warmth and their carefree atmosphere.
Throughout its beaches we can find restaurants and beach bars, reggae music and is free from overcrowding (free of cars or motorcycles).
As a curiosity, Gili’s name means “Small Island”. Do not expect to find a large surface, but you will discover a most interesting experience.
Buddhist temple Borobudur
It is also worth visiting the Borobudur Buddhist Temple.
It is located 40km to the northwest from Jakarta (Java Island). It is a very famous Buddhist temple that was built during the 8th-9th centuries (and whose construction is speculated to have lasted 75 years). It is estimated that a minimum of two million stone blocks were needed to build this emblematic monument.
The reason is not well known, but in the 14th century it was abandoned, and remained hidden under layers of volcanic ash for centuries.
These are just some of the most famous places in Indonesia that you should visit, but not the only ones! What places would you recommend?
