History And Culture Of Indonesia

We are not makers of history, we are made by history. Let's explore it!

Indonesia fell under the influence of the Kingdom of Srivijaya in the seventh century and brought Hinduism and Buddhism to the islands for the first time. Islam came in the 13th century and Java and Sumatra became powerful sultanates, while other islands continued to follow the traditions of Hindu, Buddhist and animism. 

The 16th century marked the arrival in Indonesia of the Portuguese people, the first Europeans. Although the Portuguese had broken the Islamic hold on Indonesia, the Netherlands, who named the region the Netherlands East Indies, eventually, displaced them. After four years of combat, Indonesia finally defeated the Netherlands forces and became independent in 1949. Several important events took place after 1997. East Timor became independent in 2002 after three decades of struggle. In 2004, the tsunami of Boxing Day crippled the country and killed many thousands of citizens.

The varied past of Indonesia has produced a remarkable range of vibrant cultures, making it one of the most diverse and fascinating tourist destinations in the world. Today, Indonesia is the fifth most populous nation on earth, with more than 180 million people representing more than 300 ethnic groups. The majority of Indonesians are of Malay or Polynesian descent, although the history of the country has led to minority populations from India, China, Arabia and Persia, as well as European colonial powers such as Portugal, Holland, Spain and England. Although Indonesia is mainly a Muslim nation, it is characterized by broad religious tolerance. Hinduism thrives in Bali and there is a significant presence of Christianity in Flores, Timor and several other islands. Indonesians speak many languages and dialects, but Bahasa Indonesia is the common language, along with Dutch and English too.

Why I have booked my tour with Flamingo
Why I have booked my tour with Flamingo

Why I have booked my tour with Flamingo

Here from my detailed feedback you will come to know why I have booked my tour with flamingo and what and how I get benefits out of it which will be useful for you.

 

No doubt I have done lot of home work to choose my destination for honeymoon and also finalized places to visit over you tube and through my friends who have already visited there. Even then Flamingo have done nice job in booking, managing, co-ordinating and provided me some facts which I had not known even after lot of research which is an advantage!

 

Apart from the places I visited, no doubt, Dolphin Safari at North Bali is my favorite place or adventure in Bali. Very early 3 am in the morning we left from our hotel and started Dolphin Safari at 6 am after reaching at sea shore. We have seen very nice sunrise view from the sea and we remained in sea about 5 hours. Even though we did not know how to swim we remained in high sea which was a thrilling experience for us and it was quite safe and our fear for sea was reduced to a great extent.

 

After Dolphin Safari, Nusa Penida Island tour is the next favourite destination. I would highly recommend to take one night stay at this island and take time to go down to Klingking beach to explore it perfectly which I didn’t. As to complete it in one day was quite hectic.

 

Third place I don’t want to miss to mention is Kintamani and mount batur which is very peaceful and Instagramic destination.

 

Flamingo have very good repo over their agents in other countries which can help anyone to overcome any issues if any with local hotel management, driver, etc. By booking through Flamingo I could focused well on my tour enjoyment rather than searching for the hotels, taxi, etc. which is very important for a good tour enjoyment. Also, Flamingo have developed a good app also which is very useful for managing and reminding the things and manage hectic tour schedules.

 

Hoping more future tours with flamingo with great enjoyment and adventure,

Honeymoon Trip in Bali

A journey with flamingo, most famous in tourism industry. Indeed a wonderful experience with you flamingo!

The stay provided for honeymooners like us was luxurious and beautiful. 

Talking about driver, he was very helpful and nice command over English. At the middle of the journey we started feeling of he is just a family member of us. The Car provided was also luxurious, a comfortable and relaxing one.

Now talking most important aspect, the itenary, well designed one. Nice places covered. Amongst all, river rafting was the best! 

Pickup and drop service very wonderful and timely.

Singapore and Bali Honeymoon Trip

I would like to share my experience with travelling abroad for my honeymoon with flamingo travels. This was the best of experience we've ever had. The hotels booked by them were amazing properties and their staff was also cooperative.

We had booked Singapore and Bali for our honeymoon. Mr Amit and Mr.  Manish had planned this tour. And Amit was looking for this trip personally.  I must say that he remains in touch with you throughout the trip and helps you to come out of any issues/trouble asap during the trip.

If you don't want any chaos of traveling  anywhere then you can blindly trust Flamingo team. 

Happy Client
