    There are two sides to Indonesia: the one that draws in tourism and the other for travelers looking off-the-beaten-path. Which would you visit?There really are two sides to the story of travel in Indonesia. On one hand, travelers experience the discovered. Places like south Bali and Central Java are packed with tourists from around the world. The secret has long been revealed about the beauties of Bali in particular. Laden with rolling green mountains, on which picturesque waterfalls drop amidst a scene of perfect jungle, Bali is a first-time traveler's paradise. However, many will want nothing more than to escape the crowds and over-visited temples of one of the world's biggest tourist attractions. Luckily, in Indonesia, there is the other side of the story, that which has yet to be discovered.

    In the north of Indonesia, the island of Sumatra is ripe with opportunities to escape the beaten path. In the jungles, there are orangutans to watch as they swing peacefully among the sturdy branches of the forest. Along the coasts, there are beaches still left untouched by the grasp of all-inclusive resorts. To the south, the islands of Indonesia are bursting with life as well. Rising impressively from the sea, many of these volcanic mountains are alive both geologically and naturally. Komodo dragons still lurk on the beaches and in the waters.

    While it might seem that Indonesia is far from a developing tourism economy, it only takes a little bit of exploration to realize the potential for tourism in this country has only been scratched. Whether you're hoping to party in the crowds of Kuta, search out a secluded beach on one of the smaller islands, or hike to the rim of an active volcano, there are opportunities for all types of travelers here.

    • Climb Mount Bromo, an active volcano, in Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park
    • Go SCUBA diving in West Bali
    • Watch Komodo Dragons along a beach in a tiny southern island
    • Hike into the impressive Munduk Falls in North Bali
    • Dive into the history and culture in Yogyakarta
    • Spot orangutans swing through the forests of Sumatra
