    Amazing facts about Indonesia, the wildlife haven with a very confusing flag

    1. It covers a lot of ground

    This vast place extends 5,120 kilometres from east to west. That's longer than the distance (as the crow flies) from London to Tehran (4,403km).

    1. And is made up of 18,307 islands

    That’s according to a 2002 survey by the National Institute of Aeronautics and Space (the CIA World Factbook seems to think it’s 17,508, however, while a more recent survey, by a different agency, put the figure at 13,466). Only Canada, Norway, Sweden and Finland have more.

    1. And home to the world’s largest lizard


    The Komodo dragon lives on just five Indonesian islands – Komodo, Rinca, Flores, Gili Motang, and Padar. They are truly fearsome, weighing up to 150lbs and possessing toxic bites, allowing them to hunt and kill far bigger animals – even humans.

    1. It’s heaven for animal lovers

    According to Conservation International, just 17 countries are considered "megadiverse". Each possesses a vast number of different species – many found nowhere else. And Indonesia is one.

    1. It has 139 volcanoes

    Indonesia has the third most volcanoes in the world, behind the US and Russia, according to the National Museum of Natural History’s Global Volcanism Program.

    The volcanic island of Krakatoa, between Java and Sumatra, is perhaps the most famous. It was responsible for one of the world's biggest modern eruptions; when it blew in 1883, it unleashed two huge tsunamis that killed more than 36,000 people and emitted what is considered to be the loudest sound ever heard

    1. Some of which you can climb

    A base for trips to the summit of Mount Bromo, Cemoro Lawang appears to sit on the edge of the world. The landscapes are spectacular – many say the most spectacular in Indonesia – and the region is home to the fascinating Hindu Tengger community, distinct from the predominantly Muslim lowland Javanese. Hike, admire the scenery or visit during the annual Kasada ceremony, when the Tengger climb to the crater's edge to cast offerings into the hissing, seething inner crater.


    1. There are eight Indonesian World Heritage Sites

    Komodo National Park we’ve touched on, but others include the rainforests of Sumatra, home to scores of orangutans…
    ...and the spectacular temple complex of Borobudur.

    8.But has a very tall mountain

    Lorentz National Park, another of the country’s Unesco World Heritage sites, on the island of Papua, is vast – covering 9,674 square miles – and home to a huge array of ecosystems, including mangroves, rainforest, alpine tundra and equatorial glaciers. Its highest point, Puncak Jaya, is the tallest mountain between the Himalayas and the Andes. There are 123 mammalian species and 630 species of bird, including many that are endemic to the region. But much of the park remains unexplored – so scientists believe more are waiting to be discovered.

    9.And a very large flower

    Rafflesia arnoldi, endemic to Sumatra, is noted for producing the largest individual flower on Earth. But don’t pick one for your lover – it is said to smell like decaying flesh, earning it the nickname "corpse flower".

    10.There’s a lot of coastline

    Love to be beside the seaside? Then you won't be disappointed in the destinations that appear in darker colours on the map below - they can boast the longest coastlines in the world. Indonesia is second overall, with a staggering 54,716km.

    11.Its capital is the most Instagrammed on Earth

    Instagram recently revealed that Jakarta is the city most frequently geotagged in its Stories format.

    “10 million people call this metropolis home and another 8 million pour into the city to work every day,” writes Simon Parker in his guide to Jakarta. “The traffic and vastness of Jakarta might seem daunting, but this is a melting pot of cultures and cuisines - seeking them out is part of its allure. The old town of Batavia will transport you to Indonesia’s Dutch colonial past while the fashionable Menteng district is a hive of live music venues, exclusive restaurants and hip hotels. World-renowned restaurants, bars and nightclubs perch on top of towering skyscrapers, while shoppers can choose from dozens of gargantuan shopping malls.”

    12.Best of all - it’s cheap

    The biennial World Economic Forum (WEF) Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Report was released earlier this summer. Based on factors including safety, infrastructure, health and cultural resources, Spain is the greatest destination, it says, followed by France and Germany. But the top 20 for "price competitiveness" is very different. Indonesia is fifth best value, behind only Algeria, Malaysia, Egypt and Iran.

  • After the German invasion of Ukraine during the Second World War there was a team from Kiev called the dynamo of Kiev who challenged the military to a football match, the military accepted believing that they would win, after the first time they were losing 5 to 0 and threatened to not win, after that they continued playing with all their strength and won 9 to 0, the great majority by execution died.

  • In 'The Lion King', Mufasa explains to Simba the circle of life:

    "When we die, our bodies become the grass, and the antelope eat the grass."

    When Scar murdered Mufasa, he threw him into a gorge.
    There’s no grass in the gorge..... Mufasa never completed the circle of life.
