Sulawesi

Sulawesi is historically tied to the sea and the birthplace of the ethnic Bugis people, Indonesia’s most famous boat-builders and seafarers. The island-group of Wakatobi is wonderful for snorkelling, home to the highest number of marine species in the world. Here, traditional weaving villages and blacksmiths offer a great insight into the culture. The Togean Islands form a picturesque archipelago in the northeast. Covered by lush rainforest and surrounded by coral reefs and white-sand beaches, the ecosystems teem with life – much of which is endangered. Whale sharks can sometimes be seen here. The coastal areas provide habitat and breeding grounds for turtles and dugongs. Sulawesi’s skies and wild jungles are filled with endemic birds, including the rare maleo bird.
