Indonesia is the archipelago consisting of a total of 17,508 islands, of which only about 6,000 are inhabited. Five main islands and 30 smaller archipelagoes are home to the majority of the population. The nation's capital, Jakarta is the main gateway to Indonesia. It is a contrast of modern western architecture and traditionalIndonesian culture. Its rapid growth into a metropolitan city reflects the economic, political, social and industrial development of the nation. In recent years, Jakarta has expanded its facilities for visitors with multi-star luxury hotels, fine restaurants, exciting nightlife and modern shopping centres as well as tourist attractions, restored colonial period buildings, marine resorts, and an extensive beach recreation complex.
Indonesia is rich in art and culture which are intertwined with religion and age-old traditions. Religious influences on the community are variously evident from island to island. Most of the populations follow Islam. Traditional Indonesian dances are famous all around the world. Amazingly beautiful nature is filled with species of fauna familiar to both Asia and Australia. However, there are species indigenous to Indonesia, which are now protected in wildlife reserves. Indonesia's climate is definitely tropical. There is no autumn or winter and distinctive "dry" and "wet" seasons share the year. The East Monsoon, from June to September, brings dry weather while the West Monsoon, from December to March is moisture-laden, bringing rain.
