Abandon all necessary visa's, be tough against religious extremism, stop protecting the domestic airline market, improve safety of all domestic transportation, require all Indonesians to study English at school, improve the official Indonesian tourism website and the website of the embassy ( is a shame).

Indonesia has so much to offer, its arguably the most diverse and beautiful country in the world, in which country do you find the best tropical beaches, second largest area of rainforests in the world (but for how long?), the largest amount of islands and Bali consistently voted number best tropical island in the world by tourism experts, most vulcano's (number 1), high mountains (Papua), the most diverse sea life in the world (Sulawesi). Add the diverse culture, the people (well-known for their beauty) and the fact the 5 major world religions live relatively peaceful and protected by the gouvernment and you have holiday destination number 1.

But do we want Indonesia to be flooded with mass tourism?

The downside is, if you have been to Indonesia, you get bored if you go to more "inferior" holiday destinations. The Carribean are like heaven for most naieve Dutchies for their "beautiful diving". Well.. dont expect too much if you have been to Indonesia Emoticon: Wink
