Is there tipping in Indonesia?

The answer is "no, but you certainly could and probably should.". It appears that one is not required to tip in Indonesia (I am currently on business there) and my Japanese colleagues insist it is not necessary. However, every taxi driver, waiter, bellhop etc. that I've met clearly wants a tip judging by their tendency to smile expectantly and hang around an extra few seconds until you hand them a couple of small bills. So it seems that one is not required to tip, as in the United States, it is not accurate to say that it is actually not expected, as in Japan.

Why is Indonesia important?

Indonesia is important because of its culture and its unique instruments. Indonesia is famous for its batiks also. . "Indonesia is an incredibly beautiful country. Perfect tropical, palm-backed beaches, towering volcanoes, intricately terraced hillsides, rich rainforest, world-class coral reefs, alluring whitewater, generous and hospitable people, widely diverse and attractive architectural styles of houses, palaces, mosques, churches, and temples, a great diversity of cultures, each with its own tradition of art, music, dancing, handicrafts, and sports---all invite far more attention than Indonesia has so far received. With its growing economy, the increased recognition of the importance of its rainforests, coral reefs, and associated biodiversity, and the yearning among many people to find the unique and different in an increasingly homogenized world, it is probable that Indonesia will become far better known in the future. Twenty-first century citizens of the world would do well to pay the country more attention.".

What climate does Indonesia have?

Indonesia has a tropical climate. However, compared to the summer of Europe and North America, Indonesia in temperature is less warmer. But it feels warmer because it's humid, and that makes you sweat a lot. Basically, this explains that Indonesia has a wet - tropical climate. What you won't need when you go to Indonesia: 1) If you are wanting and liking tan, then you won't need long sleeved shirts/jackets/or of those kinds (Warm Clothes). But some Indonesians hate tan, and they'd wear thin long sleeved shirts to prevent themselves from getting a darker skin. 2) Blankets, etc. What you need when you go to Indonesia: 1) Water - You're going to dehydrate if you don't drink water. I drank 2 litres of water daily, and it's a must, because you're sweating all the time. You can buy this everywhere and anywhere, anyhow, but it's okay to have your own bottle water. 2) Sun Block, or any of these stuff, that is is you're sunbathing or going to the beach.. 3) I don't know what are they called, but they're in a kind of plastic bottle that have liquid in them that if you spread them on your skin, it will prevent you form getting bitten by flies. This is good (esp. when you go to the forests, or outdoor even), even the local Indonesians wear this when needed. Hope this helps..

Who are the enemies of Indonesia?

There are diplomatic tensions between Indonesia and Malaysia. Which is causing their major allies (Dutch, United Kingdom, French, United States, etc) to worry, because most of Indonesia's major allies like Malaysia too. However, the major allies are having to slowly back away from Indonesia, because the country is actually showing signs of increased global hostility, particularly if it involves oil and gas. In recent years, some of the relations with their major western allies (United Kingdom, United States, Canadian and Australian) have turned a little foul, because Indonesia has been exposed to practice human rights violations. Indonesia needs to clean up their human rights violations and obey international human rights laws - because they cannot afford to lose their alliance with the United Kingdom and United States - because the UK and US are Indonesia's only international defence against terrorism. Other enemies are: . West Papuan activists . Al Qaeda terrorists

Is Indonesia a democracy?

"yes, Indonesia is a democracy" Well, sure.That's what Indonesians believe in, and that's what's recorded onpapers. But papers can lie. This isn't auseless little rant. You see Malaysia and Brunei's governments areIslamic theocracies, and they are more stable than the "democracy"we got running in Indonesia. You see, Indonesians claim they havean "Islamic democracy", and just to admit what kind of "democracy"is "Islamic"? Indonesia's governing style, is all of Islamic lawaka "Shariah Law" (this is bull). This goes against all the ethicsof a democracy. A democracy means "power to the people", ALLPEOPLE. In Indonesia, Christians aren't even allowed to hold oathin high office positions (this is another bull. this apply the sameof having a Muslim becoming a President in Philippine or USA. itmay happen, but will take time. current highest position by aChristian now is a Province Governor. Christian becoming a Ministeris a non issue since long ago). In a democratic nation, you can bepresident and worship Darth Vader for anyone cares as long as youcan keep the rights of the nations and the people's voice at hand.If Indonesia was a democratic nation, the army would be helpingthose getting persecuted and having their democratic rightsoppressed. Christians who preach in Bahasa Melayu or BahasaIndonesia get ARRESTED and IMPRISONED (yet another bull. go checkthe fact. I'm not going to elaborate here). No democratic nationwould arrest its people just because they are preaching theirreligious beliefs to THEIR OWN followers. Also, when churches are getting raided by angry goons, thearmy just sits back and watch. Then when the Christians run out oftheir burning churches, then the soldiers shoot and chase afterthem (Not representing the real picture. Check facts i.e. Malinoagreements, etc.). Does this sound like a "demoracy" to you? So yeah, you can forget about calling Indonesia a"democracy". What is really embarrassing is Malaysia and Brunei'sgovernments admit that they are Islamic theocracies, but they don'tgo chasing after innocent Christians or Hindus like a bunch ofgoons. In fact, Malaysia even celebrates RELIGION FREEDOM. (Gocheck with Malaysian Christian Chinese or Hndus first before makingthis wide claim. In Indonesia at least a Muslim could switchreligion freely.) Indonesia is NOT ademocracy. This isn't anti-Muslim propaganda or anything, butIndonesia is an Islamic DICTATORSHIP (Oh, please). Martial law andShariaw Law combined which is pure H-E-DOUBLE HOCKEY STICKS. (Isthis Answer.com standard of quality? Bull... For reader who wish toget the answer, better check Wikipedia i.e. History of Indonesia atthe Independence section)
