Sulawesi

The spectacular island of Sulawesi is a real adventure destination. This enormous island has much to offer the visitor from extraordinary unique cultures, to an under-explored mountainous hinterland, and several truly world class diving spots.
The old Bugis spice trading port of Makassar is the point of arrival for travelers flying from Bali or Jakarta. Mainly used as a gateway only for excursions through South Sulawesi, with an average stay of just one night, it does have a few points of interest: Losari Beach, a long stretch of waterfront in the middle of the city with a very nice sunset view and food stalls up every night and Fort Rotterdam, an old fortress from Dutch colonial days.

Sulawesi Culture Tours

An eight-hour drive through stunning coastal and mountain scenery leads to Tana Toraja, the highland region of a unique and mystical culture. Sightseeing includes the traditional Toraja houses, set on stilts with soaring boat-shaped roofs and decorated with buffalo horns, obtained during ritual sacrifice. The Toraja folk place their dead in coffins perched in caves carved into towering cliffs, with carved wooden figures of the deceased placed in balconies overlooking the landscape. The local arts and crafts, lively markets and cultural performances are also memorable features of this original destination.
