Indonesia has everything to be the number one in the world tourism. Beaches, vegetation, tropical climate, the people, the meal etc. I visit Indonesia with more or less frequency, and I was a few years ago in the south of Sumatra, Passed for Padang, Maninyau, Minangkabau, Bukit Tinggi and I can say that it had never, never seen these beaches, lakes, mountains with thick forests and the peace that was breathed in these places was incredible.
Salud y suerte
