Shopping

Food

Fish is one of the favorite food items and various types of fish feature prominently in the diet. Seafood is found in abundance and has great variety such as lobster, oyster, prawns, shrimp, squid, crab, etc. Some of the major fruits found in Indonesia are jackfruit, durian, starfruit, papaya, pineapple and mango.

When to go?

The temperature is consistent year round but slightly higher during the dry season which is April to September, January to March is the rainy season with high temperatures and tropical showers.
