| Indonesia is the world's largest archipelago, literally thousand
of islands ranging from those among the world's largest to tiny coral atolls marooned in
a sapphire sea. With terrain including snow-capped mountains and lush
rainforests arid savannah, swamps and irrigated rice fields, it's hard to imagine a more
appropriate national motto than Bhinneka Tunggal Ika - Unity in Diversity.
Vegetables are grown throughout Indonesia, especially in islands with rich volcanic soil. In this page, some of the vegetables in Indonesia will be introduced and you can learn the names and prononciations of the vegetables in Indonesian Language.
