Situated in Southeast Asia and Oceania, Indonesia is a diverse archipelago comprised of approximately 17,508 islands and a population of 238 million, nearly two-thirds the size of US. There are hundreds of distinct native ethnic and linguistic groups, the largest of these is the Javanese centered near the nation’s capitol of Jakarta. The ...archipelago has been an important trade region of spices and natural resources since the 7th century with strong trade networks established between China and India. After three and half centuries of colonial rule by the Dutch and religious influences of Islam, Christianity, Hindu and Buddhism the nation secured its independence after WWII. Indonesia’s national motto “DhinnekaTunggal Ika” means “many yet one” and articulates the diversity that shapes the nation. Despite rather large and densely populated regions, the nation still has vast areas of wilderness that supports the world’s second highest level of biodiversity.

The sun rises and sets at 6:30am and 6:30pm every day along the equator all year, every year where two stunning archipelagos of unique life and great marine biodiversity tempt adventure seekers to experience their natural wonders. Every sunrise and sunset is an inspiring and life-affirming sight to behold even if it only flirts with our senses for a fleeting moment at the center of the planet. On opposite sides of the globe sit the Galapagos, that Darwinian ecological mecca of rugged volcanic terrain and highly adapted animal life, and it’s lesser known sister nation in Natural Selection, Raja Ampat, Indonesia.
