A vast archipelago of more than 17,000 islands, Indonesia is a land of contrasts – fiery volcanoes and peaceful seas, crowded cities and distant plantations, modern high-rises and crumbling temples. Indonesia boasts an incredibly diverse mix of cultures and religions. But whatever their background, the hospitable Indonesians will greet you with a smile and a cup of their world-famous coffee, boiled with raw sugar or fresh ginger.

AFSers live with host families and will generally be placed in public high schools in the first or second year. The language of instruction is Bahasa Indonesia, and students will have the opportunity for extra language lessons. All Indonesia students wear school uniforms, and extracurricular activities include lessons in traditional Indonesia dance and music as well as Pencak Silat, a martial art.
