In the late 1500’s the region was ruled from mighty Cirebon, which still survives as a sultanate today, although a shadow of its former glory. West Java was one of the first contact points in Indonesia for Indian traders and their cultural influences and it was here that the Dutch and British first set foot in the archipelago.

16 Wonderful Indonesia : Culture and Heritage




Many of the world's most ancient wonders can be found in Indonesia. From sacred temples to palace ruins, from prehistoric remains to living traditions, visitors from around the world come to Indonesia, attracted by its unique and diverse cultures and vibrant heritage. As a country with over 350 cultural ethnic groups, the cultural diversity of Indonesia deserves to be explored. 


17 Wonderful Indonesia : Culinary





When it comes to Indonesian food, diversity is definitely what's on offer. From spicy meat curries to deep fried banana to drinks of iced coconut and jelly – cuisine in Indonesia is remarkably varied. Visitors here will find the food to be a blend of strong flavors always accompanied by nasi or rice. 


There is a statement in Indonesia that a meal without "nasi" is not really a meal and this is a philosophy that Indonesians live by, eating nasi goreng for breakfast, and more nasi for lunch and dinner.


But cities and luxury hotels do offer world class international fine dining experiences from Western dishes to Indonesian haute cuisine, or diners simply enjoy delicious freshly caught seafood served on the beach.
