Out of these, I'd vote for Switzerland or Norway, because of the scenery. Norway gets my vote

They are all good choices, but Japan and the European countries will be fairly expensive for a student... Australia is very nice, but I think you should also consider New Zealand. It's reasonably close to Indonesia but with a completely different landscape! and being a compact country, you are never too far from some breathtaking beach or mountain scenery, as opposed to the US or Australia, for example, where distances can be rather long...

Depends...If I were you I'd go to Australia, but since you're from Indonesia, you might have more oppurtunities to go there so maybe you should go for a country somewhat further away.
Too bad you can't pick a South American country...some of my best friends went to Paraguay and Bolivia and they said it was such an amazing experience...
If you're interested in Europe, maybe The Netherlands would be cool...mentality overthere is very openminded, nice country...but wrong language I guess...in Belgium and in Switzerland you can learn French, which is a good reason to go there (German, Norwegian, Dutch, Italian aren't very common languages). Italy on the other hand must be the most beautiful country in Europe But that's only my humble opinion
