The Indonesian archipelago comprises of approximately 17,500 islands, which cover an area that is in excess of 5,000 kilometres long and stretch from mainland South East Asia in the west to Papua New Guinea in the east. Indonesia’s islands are among some of the most stunning in the world; from tiny tropical islets fringed with palm trees and white sand beaches to huge lands that support lush mountainous rain forests, rugged volcanic peaks and fertile rice fields. Indonesia’s coastline is estimated at around 80,000 kilometres, which exceeds that of any other nation by far.
