Land of Thousand Islands Indonesia (Black and White Edition)

Author Name: Amitabha Gangopadhyay | Format: Paperback | Genre : Travel | Other Details

Indonesia is a vast island nation in South East Asia stretching over 5000 km from East to West. Rich with the cultural heritage of Borobudur and Prambanan temples, the country offers vibrant destinations like Bali and the remote wilderness of Borneo and Komodo island. My journey through the heartland of Indonesia took me to these fascinating places. The magnificent architecture of the temples awed me. I couldn’t help feeling an adrenaline rush when I faced the near-extinct Komodo dragons. I enjoyed the starry nights over the dense Borneo forest where the night birds steadily chirped ‘ti-ti-ti’ into the blanket of darkness. The sound of crickets from the distant bush and swamps transformed the nights into fantasy worlds. I sat on a boat over the Sekonyer river in the middle of the night and enjoyed the ‘sound of silence’ around me. I closed my eyes and the images of Indonesia that I grew up with in my bedtime stories were brought to life in the jungles of Borneo and in the rolling hills of Komodo and Rinca islands.  The book takes the reader through this journey.
