It is advisable to use the internet to get basic information about the country you are planning to visit for your holiday. For example, a trip to Indonesia can quickly turn into a disaster if you walk into the country thinking that it has a temperate climate.
A country with a temperate climate will never face extreme temperatures. On the other hand, a country situated close to the equator will have a tropical climate. This means that temperatures will swing to the extremes but the overall weather will be cool and pleasant because of excessive rain.
The large amount of water combined with heat and humidity will help flora and fauna grow very quickly. A landlocked country will have intolerable humidity while an island will have cool breeze as a difference in temperature of land and water affects the flow of wind.
A person who has spent the bulk of his or her life surrounded by concrete jungles may be dazzled by the green lush beauty of jungles. A trip to Indonesia is a smart move if you are keen on the eco tourism.
Unless you have no problem in becoming very wet on a regular basis, it is advisable to visit Indonesia in summer. This starts in April and continues till October. Of course, it not going to be completely dry but humidity will be relatively less. Do not underestimate the importance of these minor details.
Humidity will make it difficult to wear heavy clothes. Being a conservative country, excessive skin display may also lead to complications. It is advisable to have this information in your hand well in advance rather than discover it late after you reach the country and create embarrassing situations.
