KITESURFING HOLIDAYS IN INDONESIA
Indonesia encompasses around 18,000 islands, surrounded by six different seas, which make it the largest and extensive archipelago of the world, with only two-thirds of the islands inhabited and richly layered with character. From the largest number of towering volcanoes flowing with lava, to massive deepwater oceanic trenches flowing with nutrient rich plankton, the island paradise of Indonesia is perfect for kitesurfing. Indonesia’s southern islands mark the edge of the Pacific Ring of Fire and the country falls completely within the Coral Triangle, the most diverse marine region on the planet. It is this incredible bio-diversity that has established Komodo, Sulawesi, Raja Ampat, and Spice Island as world class kitesurfing destinations that offers something special for even the most intrepid of kitesurf enthusiasts, as well as those who want to kitesurf for the first time. The resorts and restaurants of Bali pamper precocious style cats, while at the same moment threadbare backpackers are adopted by home stays in Kalimantan. The jungles of Sumatra, Kalimantan and Papua are zoological wonders, revealing impish monkeys, stoic sun bears, leopards, orangutans and remarkable marsupials. As you will see diversity is not confined to Indonesia’s world beneath the seas. From peace-loving Bali to the outer riches of Raja Ampat, kitesurfing in Indonesia is one of the world’s fascinating activities to experience.

The currency in Indonesia is the rupiah. Historically the rupiah was divided into 100 sen, but inflation has long since rendered all notes and coins denominated in sen and low values of rupiah obsolete. Coins are issued in denominations of 50, 100, 200, 500, and 1,000 rupiah, and banknotes in 1,000, 2,000, 5,000, 10,000, 20,000, 50,000 and 100,000. Recent issues of higher-value notes introduced new security features and tactile elements to assist those with visual difficulties. In tourist areas and major cities, you can easily find cash-machine.
