Top 35 Indonesia Travel Experiences (And Indonesia Travel Bingo)

Indonesia Travel Bingo Card

Indonesia is another 2023 travel destination that kind of fell into my lap. Indonesia is an insanely large and spread out country that I don’t think you could fully experience without spending and entire year traveling around. That said, I’m hoping to experience as much as I can in the two weeks that I’m lucky enough to be there. Because I’m travelling with my mom, it will be a very thoroughly planned trip, and the first step in planning was to figure out what Indonesia has to offer and then figure out what kinds of things we want to experience. Once I did that, I was able to figure out which ones I could incorporate into our trip. So here’s what I found in my research. Feel free to let me know if I’ve missed anything essential.
