If you laid Indonesia map on the map of America or Europe same scale. How big is it? I asked this question many times while traveling in Indonesia. If we laid it on Canada, I would say north Sumatra would be on the Yukon and Irian Jaya would be off the coast of the Maritimes.There are many people out there with a lot more education than me,I am sure can give us a better answer.

I am sorry I talk so much. Emoticon: Bye bye

I don't know about the surface, but the width of Indonesia ( from the tip of Banda Aceh to Jayapura ) is about 5500 kilometers, and the height is about 2500 kilometers.

ont be tricked by flat maps as flat maps are totally wrong. North and south is stretched out on a flat map. The longitudal lines should meet on a globe (correct map). On a flat map the logitudal lines are parrallel. Where 2 lines meet the distance is zero, so in the north and south pole the logitudal lineshave a distance o zero. In Canada the distance is smaller in reallity. On a globe you see the distance between logitudal lines to be small in the north compared to in the equator.

According to Hammond's atlas Indonesia has an area of 735,264 US square miles. This seems tremendous, but it still fits in my heart.

You're right there. Although born in the Netherlands, my wife's blood is Turkish, Armenian, Dutch, Chinese, Ambonese, Javanese, German and maybe some other countries of which the bloodlines cannot be tracked any more! Her parents were born in good old Betawi and Bandung.

The person (plbender) who came up with this topic did not realise he or she triggered a conversation that could easy be translated to what the "real" Indonesians talk about when sitting in the village tempat duduk watching the world go by. Really funny to read all this.

The size of this great country is roughly the stretch of Europe or the USA but take a trip on a bus from Palembang to Medan and you will experience a new dimension of distance
