1 | Diamond Beach
The stunning, spectacular, and immaculate Diamond Beach in Indonesia is acclaimed worldwide for its beauty. The view from the top of this beach is remarkably gorgeous. It is located below the sheer cliff in the eastern part of Nusa Penida, Bali. Earlier on, this beach was not easily accessible. In 2018, a set of stairs was carved from the limestone present along the coastline and now anyone can get down to the beach in 20 minutes. Well, how about energizing your online meetings with some Vitamin Sea by putting up a picture of Diamond Beach as your virtual background?
Adding Diamond Beach to your bucket list? Don’t worry, it is easy to access. Diamond Beach is located in the village of Pejukutan, Nusa Penida. It is only an hour’s drive away from Toyapakeh Harbor, the access point from Bali to the island of Nusa Penida.

2 | Padar Island
Presenting an otherworldly panorama, Padar Island is a favorite spot when it comes to taking selfies in Indonesia while capturing the entire island in a single frame. It is a part of Komodo National Park, which also includes Komodo Island, Rinca Island, and 26 other smaller islands. Putting up the picture of Padar Island as your online meeting’s virtual background will surely make your home workspace feel more fantastic.
Looking forward to explore Padar Island when you #TravelTomorrow? Well, you can reach Padar Island from Labuan Bajo. Fly to Komodo Airport from Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali, head to Jl. Soekarno-Hatta, and rent a boat to Padar Island. You can even go directly to Komodo Airport in Labuan Bajo from Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Jakarta.

3 | Borobudur
Being the largest Buddhist temple in the world, the majestic Borobudur Temple Complex is a popular tourist attraction in Indonesia. Located in Magelang, Central Java, it covers an area of 123 x 123 meters, and is decorated with 2,672 relief panels and 504 Buddha statues. The bird’s-eye view from the top of this temple is amazing, but if you visit Borobudur when you #TravelTomorrow, then leave in the early morning from your inn and climb atop the temple to experience the mind-blowing sunrise. This cultural wonder will surely impress your colleagues if you add it as a virtual background for your online meetings.
Getting to Borobudur is quite easy. It is only a one-hour drive from Yogyakarta. You can opt for a travel tour or you can rent a car from there.

Spread over an area of 1,145 square km and a depth of 450 meters, Lake Toba isn’t simply the largest lake in Southeast Asia, it’s also home to local cultures, such as Tomok and Simanindo. This enormous lake presents an incredible scenery that will amuse and inspire your colleagues (and probably your boss, too) if you put it up as your online meeting’s virtual background.
Eager to explore Lake Toba when things get better? Well, it is easy to access. Fly to Kualanamu International Airport in Medan and take a 6-hour bus ride to Parapat, a town along the Lake Toba. Another option is to hire a taxi from Silangit Airport in Siborongborong and reach Parapat in 1.5 hours.
The numerous vantage points of Lake Toba offer equally fascinating views. Download the images of Lake Toba for your virtual background from here.
5 | Raja Ampat
Behold the breathtaking scenery of Raja Ampat, the king of the seas, in West Papua. Literally meaning ‘The Four Kings’, Raja Ampat is an archipelago consisting of 1,500 small islands, cays, and shoals that surround the four main islands: Batanta, Salawati, Waigeo, and Misool. It is said that the name ‘Raja Ampat’ comes from a legend about a woman who found seven eggs; four of these eggs hatched into the kings of the four main islands, and the remaining three hatched into a woman, a ghost, and a stone. Selecting a high-definition photo of Raja Ampat as your virtual background is an opportunity that you should not miss.
Make sure to visit Raja Ampat when you #TravelTomorrow, because it’s quite easy to access. Take a flight from Jakarta or Makassar to Sorong. Then reach Waisai, the capital of the district of Raja Ampat, via a small aircraft or ferry.
Don’t miss the chance to put Raja Ampat as your background. Download the images by clicking the following link.
6 | Bromo
Ready to impress your colleagues with one of the best highland views in Indonesia? Covering a massive area of 800 square km in the center of East Java, the Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park displays an out-of-this-world view of high mountains surrounded by a wide ocean of sands. Witnessing this beautiful landscape would be a whole new experience to enjoy when it’s finally safe to go outside.
The Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park can be accessed in more than one ways. First, fly to Malang from Jakarta and then choose from a number of options to get to the Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park. However, we recommend that you should go to Probolinggo and take a public bus to Ngadisari Village. From there, rent a 4x4 vehicle and enjoy the adventure trek to Tengger sand sea.

The beauty of these 6 destinations will not only refresh your mind while working from home, but also impress everyone who sees them as your virtual background. Who knows? Maybe they will be inspired to go on a vacation to Indonesia after the pandemic is over. That would be awesome, right? But remember, we need to stay at home today, so we can #TravelTomorrow.
