Indonesia is a multi-faceted and diverse island nation. With over ten countries as close geographical neighbours, this archipelago – the largest in the world – is home to over 18,000 islands and more than 240 million people. Its capital, Jakarta, is the tenth largest city in the world and has been labelled Indonesia’s own NYC.
