In general, most foreign tourists visit Indonesia during the dry season. For example in June to August, foreign tourists visit usually increases threefold.
Tourists from America and Europe usually spend time sunbathing, surfing, diving, hiking to the Indonesian volcano, and those who don’t miss are the typical Indonesian culinary hunting.
Lastly, if you visit Indonesia during the dry season, don’t forget to bring water anywhere to prevent dehydration, and wear thin clothes because of the sweaty weather.

During the rainy season, the potential of flooded rivers increases, rice fields, housing or livestock can be affected by the floods.
