Indonesia on a Budget

Indonesia is, for the most part, a budget-friendly destination for the Western traveler. You can find plenty of reasonably priced handmade crafts, affordable accommodations and cheap meals in the country. But if you're headed to local luxury hotels and spas, expect high rates on par with any big tourist destination. Your airfare will probably be one of your biggest expenditures. Use a travel agent or an airline consolidator to seek out a good deal, or search for fare sales offered by airlines that fly to Indonesia.

Best Time to Go to Indonesia

Since Indonesia is located right under the equator, travelers can expect a hot climate year-round. However, keep in mind that there are wet and dry seasons in the region. Expect somewhat rainy weather between October and April, and a dryer climate between May and September. Indonesia's dry season is its high season -- but travelers visiting the region during wetter months will still likely find desirable weather in the country.
