Living Well in Indonesia
As the world’s largest archipelagic country, the world’s third largest forest area, and the world’s fourth most populous country, Indonesia is a rich country in geodiversity, biodiversity, and cultural diversity. Wellness in Indonesia is rooted in these rich and diverse natural and cultural resources. Its wellness offerings draw upon indigenous wellness practices that have existed in the country for more than 2,000 years, blending local traditions with other traditions from India, China, and Arab countries. Indonesia’s regions offer a wide variety of healing experiences for the mind, body, and soul. Unique wellness destinations in Indonesia include Solo and the surrounding areas, with its long tradition of aromatherapy, medicinal plants, and jamu (Indonesian traditional herbal medicine); Yogyakarta, with its immersive wellness journeys in village settings and royal palace traditions; as well as Bali, with its luxurious and eco-friendly wellness retreats.
