Indonesia occupies part of the islands of the Malay Archipelago and the western region of New Guinea. This country has a rich ethnocultural diversity. You can get acquainted with the life of the indigenous inhabitants of the islands in the theme park "Beautiful Indonesia in miniature", which is located in the capital of the country - Jakarta. Indonesia is also famous for black sands of Sumatra, the rainforests of Kalimantan, the ancient Hindu temple of Prambanan and, of course, for beautiful beaches of the magical island of Bali.
There are three main traveling options in Indonesia: buses, taxi, and transfers. In different regions of Indonesia, the situation with the taxi is very different. It is fairly easy to find a taxi in Bali and Jakarta. However, in other regions, it is much more problematic. On some islands, there is no taxi service at all. There are also some places in Indonesia (usually popular beaches and landmarks) where it is impossible to order a taxi. This is the territory of private taxi drivers, and they demand a very high price. The airport has its own official company for passenger transportation, which operates at a fixed rate, which is not always profitable for tourists. In Indonesia, not all taxi drivers go by the meter, so you should negotiate the price of the trip in advance. All blue taxis, however, always have a taximeter. It is better to pay in local currency, but dollars are also accepted. Tipping is welcomed here, the average amount of a tip is 1$.
