  3. 3. Top characteristics of the country        With over 17,000 islands – approximately 6000 of them still inhabited, Indonesia is the largest archipelago country in the world. Over 580 languages and dialects, Bahasa Indonesia is the formal language (I only knows several traditional languages and dialects) Rice is the main food staple in Indonesia. That’s why most Indonesians will say they haven’t had their meal before they had rice even after they had eaten pizza or hamburger! Indonesia is home to one of the previous 7 Wonders of the world – The Borobudur Temple. It’s the biggest Buddhist temple in the world built in 9th century. Still one of the huge tourism spot in Indonesia. Sadly, on the new 7 Wonders of The World, Indonesia fell off the list. The only dragon in the world can be found in Indonesia at the Komodo Island where the Komodo dragon resides. One of the largest Muslim population in the world but Indonesia IS NOT a Muslim country. The government only recognized 6 religions here: Islam, Protestant, Catholic, Buddhist, Hindu and Konghucu. One of the world’s unique funeral procession takes place in a Toraja, a small town in Sulawesi island. Funeral procession will took around 7 days and cost a fortune. That’s why families usually save up their money for years before they can buried their loved ones. Where do they keep the body? In their house! Traditional embalming involved. Bali has been famous for years but Lombok is the most happening place among others beautiful places in Indonesia. Remember, being a country with so many islands there are plenty of beautiful beaches scattered all over Indonesia. The Dutch (or was known back then as the Dutch East Indies) colonized Indonesia for 350 years. That’s why many older Indonesians speak fluent Dutch and plenty of
  4. 4. Something about the AIESEC entity  Number of AIESEC entities in the country- 10  Number of members in AIESEC in the countryNumber of Members : 2977  Number of exchanges they do in GCDP.  President of that AIESEC Indonesia – Dea Gendyna (dea.gendyna@aiesec.net)
  5. 5.  Most Indonesians eat rice as the main dish for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. In fact some Indonesians feel they don't eat a meal unless it is rice. There is a joke that says, even if you have eaten a loaf of bread, you are still hungry. It's gotta be rice! Other Indonesians are fine with bread or noodles. For those Indonesians who have been abroad, they got used having breakfast with bread. Food     Indonesians eat rice a lot. Lunch, for example, you'll see people with a plate full with rice and a piece of chicken, or fish, or eggs and "sambal" (chillie souce). Indonesians like to eat hot (as in spicy) food. I mean really really really HOT. I would say it is hotter than Mexican food. Even we put chillie in pizza!!! (It's wierd to me. But then again, I am the wierd one ... I cannot eat spicy/hot food!.) If you order food, make sure you say no chilly or no spicy. Otherwise, the default is HOT! There was a friend from Netherland who think that he can handle hot food. (The Dutch like spicy food too.) Boy, he was wrong. He spent two days in his hotel to recover the stomachache. Each area in Indonesia has its own traditional food and custom. Here is a list of some of them. Sundanese ("orang Sunda") in West Java likes to eat fresh vegetables and sambal. There is a joke that says you can leave them in the garden and they will be fine. Sundanese like to drink tea without sugar. So don't be surprised when they offer you tea but not sweat. Ask for sugar. Javanese likes to eat sweet. Tea will be sweet. Padang (West Sumatra) likes to eat hot/spicy food. They are famous for their spicy food and fast delivery. The waiter can bring dozens of plates with various dishes with his two hands (like juggling) in one trip. You'll eat whatever you like and at the end of meal the waiter will calculate the price. You'll find "Rumah Makan Padang" (Padang restaurant) everywhere in Indonesia. We think that there must be a Padang restaurant on the moon.
  6. 6. Bali Bali is one of the world’s most popular island destinations and one which consistently wins travel awards  Borobudur Located 40 km (25 miles) northwest of Yogyakarta on Java, the Borobudur is the one of the most famous Buddhist temple in the world.  Komodo National Park The Komodo National Park is a national park located within the Lesser Sunda Islands that includes the three larger islands Komodo, Padar and Rincah, and 26 smaller ones.  Gili Islands Lombok’s most popular tourist destination, the Gili Islands are an archipelago of three small islands: Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air.  Torajaland Torajaland (Tana Toraja) is a highland region of South Sulawesi, home of the Toraja people.  Bunaken Located at the north of the island of Sulawesi, Bunaken is one of Indonesia’s most famous dive and snorkeling areas. The island is part of the Bunaken Marine Park where you can see more than 70% of all fish species that live in the western Pacific ocean.  Mount Bromo Gunung Bromo is an active volcano and part of the Tengger massif, in East Java. At 2,329 meters (7,641 feet) it is not the highest peak of the massif, but it is the most well known  Places to visit

  8. 8. Tips for being mentally prepared.        For most people, Indonesia evokes images of white beaches and stunning scenery. Although this is true, Indonesia has a lot more to offer. Moving to Indonesia will enable you to delve into a very rich and ancient cultural tradition. With a population of over 250 million, Indonesia is the fourth largest country in the world. Each island offers a different taste of the country’s multitude of cultures. Moving to Indonesia is a dream come true for many and generally speaking a well-liked destination among expats. Climate in Indonesia Keep in mind that regardless of what your precise destination is when moving to Indonesia, be it a city or village, you may have to get used to the climate first. Indonesia has a tropical climate – in short, very hot and very humid. In addition, you will have to pay close attention to monsoon season when moving to Indonesia. There are two monsoons, the eastern monsoon from June to September, which is the driest season, and the western one from December to March, which brings the heavy rains. It would be less than optimal for you to move there during the rainy season. Food will not be a problem it is same as indian food but a less spicy People are very helpful but just be polite to them .
