This is­sue we bring you what you need to know about health and beauty in In­done­sia. From an ex­plainer on tra­di­tional med­i­cal treat­ments to the top sa­lons and clin­ics in town, we’ve got you cov­ered.

In the wake of a global study prov­ing what many of us al­ready sus­pected – those in In­done­sia walk the least of any­one in the world – we ex­plore why this is the case in In­done­sia, as well as the ben­e­fits to both phys­i­cal and men­tal health cre­ated by walk­ing.

We take a look at the im­pact the so- called ‘sin tax’ has had on smok­ing and pon­der if we’ll soon see a drop in smok­ing rates across the coun­try, while the health care sec­tor be­comes the next big thing for for­eign in­vestors.

Fi­nally, we have a meal at Dim Sum King, Kerry B. Col­li­son re­flects on Aus­tralia’s con­nec­tion to the Pa­cific and we wrap up some of the coun­try’s big­gest sto­ries over the last fort­night.

See you next time,

Erin Cook
