Are you looking for the adventure of a lifetime, a trip down the road less traveled? If so, then Indonesia is the place to go! Indonesia has so much to offer visitors that choosing what to do and where to go can be difficult. The "Tuttle Travel Pack Indonesia" takes you to the top 15 places to visit, and details the amazing array of things you can do in each location--including the old and modern worlds of Jakarta, the ancient temple of Borobudur, the beaches famous for surfing and sea sport, and so much more. Well thought-out, easy-to-use, easy-to-carry and packed with historical information, handy lists, 31 detailed maps, a large pull out map, photographs, and useful notes for planning your journey, the "Tuttle Travel Pack Indonesia" ensures you'll spend your time actually enjoying your visit! Author Linda Hoffman has successfully organized her 25 years of journeying through Indonesia into three simple, easy to follow chapters, including Indonesia's Top 15 "Don't Miss" sights to see, Exploring Indonesia, and Author's recommendations, as well as providing basic travel information, useful pointers for getting around Indonesia, expected etiquette, and other basic survival details.
"[T]hese books cover the touristy sites that you don't want to miss, but they also detail some of the more hidden spots. These travel books are easy to carry around and aren't loaded with a lot of information that I don't need. I also like that both guidebooks come with very detailed folded maps in the back. This makes getting around so much easier." -- This Way to Paradise
"The adventure of a lifetime" most aptly describes author Linda Hoffman's 25-year journey in Indonesia. After 10 years in Jakarta, the country's heartbeat, and a brief stint in Bali, for the past 12 years she has been based in Yogyakarta, a university and historically significant town teeming with smart kids from across the archipelago and tourists. Over the years she has traveled throughout the country on public ferries, by horse-drawn carts, in cargo trucks and on foot to delve into the mysteries of the land and its peoples.
