    By Christina Victoria ___ Well, boasting some 17,000 islands that stretches between two oceans, it’d be hard to dream of any other place on earth where sea, land and sky have all come together to produce different absolutely breath-taking strips of sand and of such utter variety. Small uncluttered coves that are lapped by crystal seas to long and devil-black stretches of windswept sand and wave; there exist many tourist attraction beaches whose soft and white sands are infrequently smudged by human footprints. A number of them you may reach by bus or car, while others can be reached…

  • One of Indonesia’s Most Important Museums: National Museum

    Tasa Nugraza Barley
    13 Oct 2014 | 5:26 am
    by Tasa Nugraza Barley There’s an old saying in Indonesia that a big nation is one that appreciates its history. Through history, people can learn about their cultural origins and their national identity.

Most Indonesians seem to prefer to spend their weekends and other leisure time at the many shopping malls that are scattered across Jakarta. Overlooked by the public attention, the capital is home to a series of rich,…

    By DEBORAH NETBURN Archaeologists working in Indonesia say prehistoric hand stencils and intricately rendered images of primitive animals were created nearly 40,000 years ago. These images, discovered in limestone caves on the island of Sulawesi just east of Borneo, are about the same age as the earliest known art found in the caves of northern Spain and southern France, suggesting that Europe can no longer claim to be the sole birthplace of art. The findings were published Wednesday in the journal Science. “We now have 40,000-year-old rock art in Spain and Sulawesi,” said Adam…
