Indonesian Visa Requirements to Visit Komodo National Park

December 12th, 2010
At this week's featured UNESCO World Heritage Site, you can see real, live dragons. They may not have wings and they may not breathe fire, but the Komodo dragons of Komodo National Park are still quite fearsome indeed. They can be anywhere from 6 to almost 10 feet long, and are equipped with long claws and sharp teeth perfect for rending flesh. They can swallow a goat whole, and their mouths ooze bloody saliva. Their bite is slightly venomous, but the aggressive pathogenic bacteria in their mouths is even more of a concern. They've been known to attack humans, and even more frequently to dig up and devour freshly buried bodies. Natives that live near them used to sacrifice goats to them to ensure peaceful coexistence, and the dragons have become more aggressive since outside environmen

September 26th, 2010
Indonesia's motto is "Unity in Diversity," and this is an apt description of a country that consists of 17,508 islands and 206 million people speaking 742 different languages. Opportunities for tourism in Indonesia are equally diverse-there's so much to see and do that it's hard to narrow it down. Nevertheless, here are 5 of the most spectacular reasons to get an Indonesian visa: Bali: Bali is a wonderland of clean white and black-sand beaches, gorgeous rice terraces, and enchanting temples. The island is also one of Indonesia's most important artistic centers, nurturing dancers, painters, sculptors and metalworkers alike.

Should You Use Your Indonesian Visa to Visit Indigenous Tribes?

August 12th, 2010
One of the neat things about Indonesia is how many different local tribes and cultures there are, each with their own unique customs. Gadling has a post up about some of the most interesting tribal cultures in Indonesia, encouraging readers to visit groups like the Sea Gypsies (more properly, the Moken or the Mogen), the Batak, the Baliem Valley Tribes, the Tana Toraja and the Dayak Tribes of Borneo. Certainly, a huge part of the charm of any foreign travel is seeing how people live in other parts of the world and experiencing local cultures. And often, your tourist dollars are a boon to the people you're visiting, providing money for food, schools and other necessities that we take for granted. However, too many tourists can also interfere with traditional ways of living, and there's


Get an Indonesia Visa to Get Up Close and Personal With a Tarsier

July 30th, 2010
At this point, you're probably wondering: what, exactly, is a tarsier? About 5 inches long from nose to tail, the tarsier is the tiniest of all primates. Known for their huge, saucer-shaped eyes and basically for being adorable, they are also, unfortunately, endangered. Although tarsiers are classified as primates, they are very primitive and look more like adorable, furry pocket-sized aliens than monkeys. They don't adapt well to captivity at all, so you won't find them in any zoos. If you want to see one, you'll have to travel to their natural habitat. Tarsiers are endemic to Southeast Asia, and can be found in the Philippines, Malaysia and Indonesia. Indonesia has a decent-sized population in Tangkoko National Park near Manado. With the help of a guide, you can look for tarsiers i
