Next time you reach for your nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice, say a silent “thank you” to Indonesia, Queen of Spice. In fact, Indonesia’s strategic sea-lane position fostered international trade for two millennia or so. Indonesia has been exchanging goods with India and China since the first century A.D. Indeed, trade has fundamentally shaped the history of this colorful country.

     The world’s fourth-most populated country, Indonesia’s 17,000-odd islands span the equator for 3,100 miles and support an intriguing array of cultures—literally hundreds of distinct native ethnic and linguistic groups. Despite its large population, Indonesia’s islands boast vast tracts of wilderness that support enormous biodiversity. This is the only place on Earth you can view pygmy forest elephants and the best place to see orangutans in the wild.

     Bali absolutely exemplifies island beauty—endless beaches, coral reefs, mountains, quiet villages, artistry, ancient Hindu remains (a number of them are UNESCO World Heritage sites)...

     On the island of Java, we love Borobudur, a ninth-century Buddhist temple (also a UNESCO World heritage site) that’s still a magnet for pilgrims. And the sprawling Hindu temple complex of Prambanan, erected about 50 years after Borobudur.
