Where to go in Indonesia

With a mere 13,000 islands to choose from there's likely to be an island to suit all but the most lubbing of landlubbers. Some islands are more about the culture (Flores springs to mind), others more about the often dramatic scenery (Java's volcanoes) but all bring an alluring blend of both to the party, with much more besides. Here are our favourite spots:
