Beyond Bali: Discover the Unspoilt Beauty of Indonesia’s Islands | 印尼的处女岛屿

Stretched across the Equator, Indonesia is a year round destination for beach getaways. The famous island of Bali gets a lot of deserved attention, with floods of tourists lining its beaches and packing its hotels. But Indonesia is a nation of over 17,000 islands, and with 8,000 of those occupied there’s so much more to discover. 

And Indonesia wants you to see this. Recently, the Indonesian government announced a ‘10 new Balis’ campaign to encourage tourism outside of the island hotspot.

Deserted beaches, waterfalls, cliffs and coral reefs are seemingly endless is this diverse and enigmatic country.  We’ve done a little look into five islands to get that adventure started.

A Veteran’s Guide to Surviving SXSW

Austin is in the midst of SXSW, an annual festival of film, interactive media, music and conferences. It’s an event where you can catch a keynote speech by Elon Musk before heading to a music festival featuring rapper Action Bronson, as well as everything in between.

Look around and you’ll also discover SXSW’s home of Austin to be a fascinating place in of itself. A city renowned for its live music and distinct culture, it has more recently undergone a change as new demographics move in and the unique social fabric of the city changes.  The result is a city that moves between its old and new, with every resident holding their own opinion on exactly where Austin is heading.
