Papua is a beautiful part of Indonesia full of rich tribal traditions that span thousands of years. The roads are limited so people often travel by air or water. It is an amazing place to get up close with tribes and appreciate their lifestyles. A great stop off destination during your stay are the Raja Ampat Islands, fast earning a reputation as one of Indonesia’s hottest new travel destinations - this remote cluster of islands is blessed with exquisite scenery, idyllic beaches and an underwater environment second to none. Dubbed the ‘Amazon of the world’s reefs’ Raja Ampat is located in the famed Coral Triangle, said to be among the planet’s most biodiverse marine ecosystems. The archipelago constitutes four major islands and 1000-odd islets and limestone karst outcrops covered with verdant rainforest and dotted amid temperate aquamarine seas teeming with life. it is home to a staggering 75% of the world’s coral species (some found nowhere else on earth) as well as myriad other ocean creatures - including manta rays, sea horses, turtles, dugongs and a dazzling array of tropical fish.
