With over 17,000 islands, more than 300 ethnic groups, and 500 dialects, "diverse" does not begin to describe Indonesia. Fascinating, remarkable, and breathtakingly beautiful only begin to describe this region of emerald islands, beaches, mountains, and volcanoes. With its natural beauty, welcoming people, fascinating cultures, and tropical climate with little temperature variation, Indonesia is a spectacular wedding destination.
Bali, Java, Tengarra and Sumatra are just some of the more popular destinations, offering surfing, scuba, safari touring, as well as traditional music, dance and puppetry. As the epicenter of the 2004 tsunami, parts of northern and western Indonesia suffered tremendous damage, while Bali and other areas survived unscathed. The region is coming back, rejuvenating and rebuilding.
Indonesia hugs the equator, and its climate is tropical, with hotter temperatures at the beaches, and cooler, wetter weather inland. May through September, the dry season, may be the best months to plan an Indonesian destination wedding.
