					Indonesia: An International Travel Destination for Ancient Religious Exploration

One of my travel medical insurance clients went to the world’s largest Muslim country,
Indonesia, to explore the world famous religious temples and ruins. It is not that hard to enter
Indonesia. Citizens of other Asian countries can enter Indonesia without a visa. For nationals of
other countries like the United States of America, a visa-on-arrival is issued upon entry to the
country. Such visa is good for a maximum of 30 days – this is more than enough time to take in
the splendid sights and immerse yourself in the culture of Indonesia. The cost of having a visa
issued in Indonesia is $10 for a visa good for 7 days and $25 for one that lasts for 30 days. It
would be a good idea to protect yourself with an international health insurance coverage
especially if you will be staying for quite some time. You do not want to be caught unprepared
in case you get into an accident or if your baggage gets lost as you go from one location to
another in Indonesia.

One popular international travel destination in Indonesia is Bali. The residents in Bali are
largely Hindu. There is an international airport right in Bali where you can have your visa-on-
arrival issued. Stunning beach views can be enjoyed in Bali. There are resorts all around the
island offering affordable accommodations. Instead of holing up in the resorts, spend your days
exploring the temples in the island – there are about 10,000 temples in Bali. You can also
arrange for a tour to the ancient religious temple of Borobudur in Java. Borobudur is known to
be the world’s biggest Buddhist temple. It is considered to be among Southeast Asia’s greatest
religious monuments along with Angkor Wat in Cambodia and Bagan in Myanmar. It was in the
early 1800s when the temple was cleared from volcanic ashes and then eventually restored early
in the 20th century. The sheer size of the temple is overwhelming in itself. A closer inspection
of the temple’s interior and exterior walls will reveal beautifully detailed carvings. Definitely a
sight to behold and a cultural experience you do not want to miss in your lifetime. Indonesia is
truly one international travel destination you want to plan to visit on your next vacation.
