Language, in a strange way, can open our eyes to the way that Indonesians do business, and shows us many of the challenges that non Indonesian speaking business people may face. When you have the language, these challenges are either overcome, or simply disappear. Language, and being able to converse, is one of the most powerful business tools, far better than Google Translate that often loses the intrinsic meaning of the conversation.
Indonesia is a stunning country to visit, and speaking Indonesian allows a person to get under the skin of one of the most diverse and beautiful cultures on earth. Going beyond Bali, language opens up other amazing, less touristy places in one of the most naturally beautiful countries in the world. Language allows a person to converse with locals and often allows lesser known parts of the country to be discovered that can leave you breathless.
Just a quick Google of Indonesia will soon show a person just what Indonesia has to offer beyond nice beaches. Learning to speak Indonesian will take a person beyond the beaches and tourist hot spots, as well as the places and sights others cannot get to, and they soon become very accessible.
