The "Wonderful Indonesia" tourism promotion and "Sales Mission" that was recently held in Johannesburg and Cape Town, South Africa showcased the intrigue of Indonesia and offered  various travel and tourism packages to experience a vibrant country which is also the largest archipelago in the world. It takes approximately 6 hours to fly from one end to the other and it occupies almost an eighth of the world.

A dynamic country at the heart of the Pacific Rim of Fire is a melting pot of cultures and traditions. Its exotic fauna and flora and cornucopia of spices make its cuisine a festival of flavours.

The breathtaking scenery, fishing, scuba diving, birding, hiking, shrines, temples and mosques, elephant safaris, Harley Davidson tours and of course shopping make a holiday in Indonesia an unforgettable experience.
     
South Africans including nationalities of 30 other countries can enjoy visa-free entry into Indonesia. Although South African arrivals to Indonesia have been relatively stable, The Ministry expects that this free visa policy will help boost arrivals from South Africa.

"We are optimistic that the tourism sector will continue to maintain a high growth rate in the future so that it becomes an increasingly important economic driver for Indonesia. Over the last three years tourist arrivals have risen significantly. The sector has made a significant contribution to the economy, creating jobs and generating foreign exchange,” Minister Yahya added.

As  a  highly  populated  country  and  a  vibrant  democracy, Indonesia  has  vast  travel  and  tourism  growth  potential.  Economic growth and growing disposable incomes are expected to boost travel and tourism revenue in the future.  Political  stability  and  the  continuous  flow  of  foreign  investors  will  also continue  to  push  travel  spending  for  business  purposes.  In  addition,  government efforts  to  boost  both  domestic  and  international  tourism  will  result  in  a  growing number of inbound and domestic tourists in coming years.

The Republic of Indonesia is the largest archipelago in the world, comprising more than 13,000 tropical islands fringed with white sandy beaches. Among the most well-known islands are Bali, Java, Kalimantan (formerly Borneo), Papua, Sulawesi (formerly Celebes), Sumatra, and the Maluku Islands (or better known as Moluccas, the original Spice Islands).
 
The destination offers richly diverse cultures and heritage, beautiful beaches and ecotourism along with green rainforests to trek through and deep blue pristine seas to dive and swim, and the warmest, most hospitable people on earth to welcome South Africa visitors.
