Chandler Writing New Indonesia Travel Guide

Indonesian Language and Travel Guide

Gary R. Chandler just signed a contract to write another version of the Language and Travel Guide to Indonesia. He will work with Hippocrene Books of New York, NY as he did on the first edition in 1994.

Indonesia includes some of the largest and most exotic islands in the world, including Bali, Borneo, Java, Komodo, New Guinea, and Sumatra. Indonesia has more than 17,500 islands in all. The nation shares two of its largest islands with neighboring countries. The Indonesian state of Papua, formerly known as Irian Jaya, occupies the western half of New Guinea—the world’s second largest island.

“I’m really looking forward to updating the Language and Travel Guide to Indonesia,” Chandler said. “Much has changed and global interest and investment in Indonesia is at an all-time high.”

Chandler first visited Indonesia in 1993. He taught English, wrote for the Jakarta Post and Garuda magazine and saw parts of Indonesia that the outside world would like to know about. Now, he’s actively involved trying to conserve wildlife, while helping develop eco-tourism across Indonesia.
