Getting to Indonesia

Continental and American out of the U.S. fly to Indonesia, as do many major airlines in many countries. Flights from neighboring countries often stop in cities in Indonesia and visa-versa, so your trip to Indonesia could be multi-faceted. The primary gateway to Indonesia is Jakarta's Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, but Bali's Ngurah Rai International Airport is fast becoming a favorite alternative.

Airports

The islands of Java, Sumatra, Kalimantan, Sulawesi, Maluku, Papua and the Lesser Sunda Islands all have numerous regional airports, while the first four islands listed here also have international airports with scheduled service to neighboring countries. Indonesia and any close neighbors are easily navigable and fairly inexpensive to fly to with visas available at the airport for short visits to any other country in Asia.

Airlines

Indonesia is host to 35 domestic carriers issued an Air Operator Certificate by the Civil Aviation Authority of Indonesia. The largest of these carriers have scheduled service out of and between the largest airports. These are Airfast Indonesia, Airmark Indonesia, Eastindo, Garuda Indonesia, Lion Air and Linus Airways. Garuda is the national airlines and has the most scheduled flights, but you will find that all of the domestic flights are very reasonably priced. Linus, Lion, Garuda, Airfast and Airmark also service close neighboring countries and therefore have scheduled flights out of the international airports.

Other Money-Saving Tips

As is true of any extended vacation, pre-planning will result in the largest cost savings. The second determining factor is usually the weather. Indonesia's weather can be divided into two seasons: wet and dry. The wet season is typically between October and April. It doesn't differ much in temperature, as being on the equator insures the temperatures stay fairly constant, but the wet season can deter back road travel and affect plans to travel between islands by ferry. It will usually not rain all the time, but tropical downpours are frequent and some times it will rain for days at a time. The dry season, May through September, are the favorite times to travel to Indonesia, but traveling then will result in higher costs and more congestion. Flexibility is key to saving money. Fly during the week, rather than on weekends and flying during unattractive hours will guarantee a less expensive flight. Hotels are greatly reduced during the wet season and if you are willing to change plans to accommodate rainy weather, you will find the best deals then.

In Closing

The archipelago islands of Indonesia are a paradise of contrasts, cultures, character and the best that nature has to offer. Choosing which sites to see, which islands to visit, which local people you'd like to get to know better will be hard choices, but you cannot make a wrong decision here. You will love every minute of your time in Indonesia!

Among the most popular choices of vacation destinations is Asia. It is a place where old ways of life are still evident and the natural environment is appreciated and protected. Whether you are looking for a cultural experience or an adventure with nature, Asia is a must, and Indonesia will fill the bill. Spread out across the equator for more than 3000 miles, this archipelago houses more than 17,000 islands, two-thirds of which are inhabited. Each island, from Sulawesi, with its intricate funeral ceremonies to Tana Toraja's timeless traditions to the surfing culture on Lombok, each has their own distinctive character. Travel to Kelimutu to photograph the multihued crater lakes residing atop an ancient volcano. Visit Sumba, a somewhat isolated island with distinctive tribal customs and a strong weaving heritage. For the nightlife, palaces, temples and shopping, go to Bali, the heart of Indonesia. Then, take a deep breath and partake of a snorkeling or diving adventure in Bunaken Marine National Park. You might end your trip in Tanjung Putting National Park where you can embark on a river adventure and laugh at the antics of the orangutans, one of the park's many residents.
