Over 13,000 islands bear the proof of the natural riches of this beautiful environment of earth and water. After all, this is the best way to describe Indonesia as natives themselves call it Tanah Air Kata which translates into “Our Earth and Water”.

Getting to Know Indonesia

The best way of getting advantage of an Indonesia cruise is to arrive on a different island every day and be amazed by the stunning surroundings, the warm, clear waters packed with colorful corals and the grandeur of the mountain towers rising up to 16,000 feet. Choosing a travel package of the many Indonesia Cruises available on the internet will take you into an amazing natural décor of lush tropical rain forests, flowering plants and lots and lots of wilderness species, adding an untamed charm to the beauty of the Indonesian region.

Indonesia Cruises may be the perfect opportunity to explore what Nature has to offer, as one fifth of the world’s plant and animal species are sheltered within the vast emerald islands. Attractions covered by the Indonesia Cruises include the wild island of Komodo, roamed by fearsome dragons, the calm of the turquoise Flores Sea- a perfect spot for scuba diving amongst the wonderful living corals or the giant Buddhist monument guarding the green plains of the Indonesian country. Other popular destinations of the Indonesia Cruises refer to the island of Java, a volcanic island where visitors will get to enjoy superb coastlines and dense tropical vegetation, and, of course, let us not forget about the notorious port of Bali, a good place to shop for hand-made souvenirs made by real Balinese artisans.

The land may be vast, but if you plan on putting your explorer skills to the test, note that you will be limited to a handful of ports as many of the Indonesian islands are not accessible to the public. However, you’ll have plenty of wonders to see provided by the shore trips of the Indonesia Cruises. Water sports enthusiasts will be thrilled with anticipation of the exciting adventures that await them in the lovely ports of Indonesia.
