Discover Indonesia Information
Indonesia or the emblematic country of the Komodo Dragon. The reputation of its human warmth and welcome is not denied by anyone. The islands with their tropical climate offer such a variety of landscapes: mountains, rice terraces, beaches, seabed. The Indonesian gastronomy also has nothing to envy to its Asian or European competitors.
Bahasa (federal language)
English is widely used on the island, you will hear it almost everywhere, Indonesians will make every effort to understand you.
No vaccinations are required. However, a malaria treatment may be a good choice if you plan to stay outside the main cities or if you want to extend your stay on Lombok (essential). Vaccinations for hepatitis A and typhoid fever are available and strongly recommended (ask your doctor).
Water / Electricity
Tap water is unfit for consumption, Indonesians do not drink it, follow their example! If you can't do otherwise, boil the water (one minute at 100°C is enough to kill all bacteria dangerous for humans, including hepatitis A). Be careful with ice cubes (although almost all hotels are obliged to buy them from approved centres).
Currency / Exchange
Beware that not all ATMs issue the same maximum amount, 50,000 100,000 or 150,000 Rps (written on a sticker above the ATM screen).
