Lonely Planet Indonesia

indonesiaLonely Planet Indonesia

The latest Lonely Planet Guide to Indonesia covers the world’s most extensive archipelago nation, from Mecca’s front porch in Aceh to Polynesia’s backdoor in Papua.

For the ninth edition of this comprehensive guidebook, Muhammad Cohen reprised the Kalimantan portion of his Borneo journey, this time in even greater depth. Highlights include jungle cruising along the Ohong River escorted by hornbills and proboscis monkeys; a culinary tour of Chinese-spiced, broad-shouldered Pontianak, one of Indonesia’s least sprawling, most traveler friendly cities; and a trawl through the highs and lows of Samarinda’s burgeoning club scene. For Cohen, no sacrifice is too great to inform fellow travelers what awaits them along the road.
