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.

It Was Such A Fabulous Trip!
It Was Such A Fabulous Trip!

It Was Such A Fabulous Trip!

It was such a Fabulous Trip. We 4 people ( 2 couples) opted for 6 nights and 7 days stay at Ubud and Kuta respectively. Both of the accommodation facility were best as expected. We enjoyed staying and relaxing there throughout the tour. Tour was designed as per our dates and days requirements. Totally personalized trip no hurry. Perfect balance of each day including day time activity and leisure time at hotel. Our agent there at Bali was much supportive and helpful. Not a single problem of pick up and drop and in between sightseeing from the driver side. He behaved politely with us and enjoyed our company. On a full leisure last day driver helped us to plan nusa penida island trip and it was worth visiting that island. In short all thanks to Flamingo Transworld and STS tourism for this memorable trip of the lifetime. We are very grateful for this.

I Will Surely Come To Flamingo For My Next Trip

This is to give my regards to flamingo for making my honeymoon trip most memorable. We were in the bali for 7 nights. They welcomed us very gracefully. The accommodations flamingo had suggested are up to the mark. We enjoyed the stay.
Furama villa are having some insects issues due to the rainy atmosphere but over all it was very nice stay. Our stay in Holiday inn resort in baruna was very pleasant.
Candle light dinner was awesome at sadara resort. We couldn't have believed that was our real time. It was like a fairy tale. (Most important note: On our arrival at sadara resort at 9PM, we informed them that we are pure vegetarian. They have prepared everything for the east asian and european people as they are frequent visitors. They havn't done anything for vegetarian people like us but they had taken help from their indian restaurant and prepare our full dinner.
They served us full typical indian dish that was very delicious. We were surprised they had made such a dinner specially for us. They took our photos and also shared with us. What a beautiful night that was!)
Our tour guide (Mr. Wijaya) is very helpful person. Such a genuine person he is!
I recommend you to praise him by giving a best feedback to his agency.
He made an arrangement for the nusa penida tour and that was jaw dropping experience. Thank you for recommending us this island trip. 
We praise the management of flamingo and adventure Indonesia.
Overall we thank you for giving us the memories that last forever. 
We will definitely refer flamingo to our friends and families. 
I will surely come to flamingo for my next trip.

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,
