What is the Weather in Indonesia?
Almost all of Indonesia is tropical with land temperatures that remain fairly constant all year. It is relatively humid, between 70 and 90 percent. At higher elevations, the temperature can be cooler. There are only two seasons in Indonesia, rainy and dry. The dry season is from April to October while the wet season is November to March.
How do I get Around Indonesia?
Most people use buses to travel around Indonesia, but they can be very cramped and slow. They can also be very frightening. In larger cities, color-coded minivans known as angkots, oplets, bemos or microlets, run a circuit that can be adapted to customers. These are often faster and less frightening than buses. You can also arrange to take a tourist shuttle from one destination to the next, but they are a more expensive option. If you need to travel long distances, trains are an option and some convenience stores have self-service train ticket machines. You can also visit neighboring islands on ferries on the coastline.
