Indonesia is the largest archipelago in the world with 17,508 islands -- a whopping 10% of all the planet's islands. The country is also home to the most populated island on earth, Java. There you will find Jakarta, Yogyakarta, Bandung and several other popular tourism destinations. Although Bahasa Indonesia is the official language, there are over 700 dialects spoken throughout the country and as a result most natives are polylingual.
