Often described as the "Last Paradise on Earth", Bali is the place where you can enjoy diving and surfing in the breathtaking seas to your heart's content. Traditional dances called "Kecak" and "Barong" will also ease your eyes and mind. If you are into history, you should surely visit Borobudor, the Buddhist shrine built back in the eight or ninth century. It sounds like a heavenly holiday that anyone would dream of. However, this is just one small piece of Indonesian charm. Take a close look at a world map. Stretched along the equatorial zone for about 5,100 km West to East, and 2,000 km North to South, Indonesia contains as many as 14,000 islands. Hundreds of tribes and ethnic groups with different cultures and religions live together and about 300 languages are spoken. Each island has different things to offer. Where is your next holiday destination?
Mr. M. Faiz Syuaib will introduce you to the nature, history, culture and education of Indonesia. He lives in Ami town now and he is a doctoral student at the Graduate School of Agriculture, Ibaraki University.
