Southeast Asia to Oceania
Indonesia is an island country located mainly in Southeast Asia, with some territories in Oceania. Situated between the Indian and Pacific oceans, it is the world’s largest island country. It boasts more than thirteen thousand islands.
In a word, this country is huge. At 1,904,569 square kilometres, Indonesia is the world’s 14th largest country in terms of land. More than that, its the 7th largest in terms of combined sea and land. Moreover, the island of Java is the world’s most densely populated island.
The country’s largest islands are Java, Sumatra, Borneo (shared with Brunei and Malaysia), Sulawesi, and New Guinea (shared with Papua New Guinea).
Here, the climate is almost entirely tropical. Every major island expresses a rainforest-type atmosphere. However, a monsoon climate predominates along Java’s coastal north, Sulawesi’s coastal south and east, and in Bali. Meanwhile, a tropical Savanna climate covers Central Java, lowland East Java, coastal southern Papua and smaller islands to the east of Lombok.
