The largest archipelago (a group of islands) in the world, Indonesia, comprises thousands of tiny islands, of which only one/third is inhabited. Also, Indonesia houses around 75% of the world’s volcanoes, making it the country with the widest number of volcanoes in the world. The country is also popular for its ethnic diversity and phenomenal biodiversity. Indonesia attracts a lot of immigrants from all around the world. Its largest islands are Celebes, Sumatra, Java, Halmahera and Ceram. Sumatra is the sixth largest island in the world. In addition, Indonesia has the largest economy in Southeast Asia. And ‘Indonesian Rupiah’ is the currency in this country.
If you are planning for an exotic Asian holiday this summer, the sultry archipelago of Indonesia may be one of the best options for you. The 4th most populous country in the world features a unique kaleidoscope of people, traditions, cultures, flora and fauna, topography, climates, cuisines, and so on. It’s like several different countries coming together to form a single, organic whole, and in turn, evolving to form a rich and fascinating cultural landscape. It is perhaps these radical differences, yet oneness of the nation and its people, which has made it one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world.
Planning for a holiday is always exciting and a good planning will make sure you can relax and enjoy when you’re there! So, if you are planning to visit this exotic country anytime soon, you might want to get the Indonesian currency beforehand since it is the best option to keep your travel hassle free. The current rupiah consists of coins from 50 rupiah up to 1000 rupiah (1 rupiah are officially legal tender but are effectively worthless and are not circulated), and from banknotes of 1000 rupiah up to 100,000 rupiah. With 1 USD worth 12,150 rupiah (August 2014), the largest Indonesian banknote is therefore worth approximately 8.25 USD. And the best part? You don’t have to go anywhere to find foreign currencies, for you can easily purchase them online. There are some of the leading online dealers who are involved in selling Indonesian Rupiah and other foreign currencies online.
