Half of the world’s population is used to a tropical Christmas: a holiday spend with sand, sea, and the slightest hint of cold in the night breeze. For other half, it is a novelty they indulge themselves in every now and then. They are used to a Christmas with snow, fireplaces, stuffing, eggnog, and so on.
But there is something completely unique about spending the holidays in a tropical country, one that is most definitely unforgettable. Yes, there is no snow or fireplaces; however, these places make do with activities they have in store for everyone in the holidays. And you know, where better to spend it than in Indonesia.
