Indonesia

Indonesia

Regional (island to island) variation in traditions, religions, and cuisine is considerable. Commonalities such as batik, puppetry, and earlier Hindu and Buddhist ways of life are coupled with a strong Islamic belief system across the archipelago. Together this gives modern Indonesia an island-based way of life. This diverse cultural mosaic is the reason Indonesia has 10 of UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage items.
