How to get to Wakatobi

Hi, hello there! I am going to talk about how to get to Wakatobi. These exotic islands offer some of the best diving in Indonesia (Raja Ampat and Manado are also great!).

Wakatobi is a part of Sulawesi and the islands are located just off the Southern coast of the mainland. Wakatobi is composed of four main islands;...

The Sea Gypsy's haven of Wakatobi

They really are the 'Sea tribe'   We get on to a small boat to get across to one of the Bajo village in Kaledupa Island. The sea is so calm, the sky is blue, and in the distance we can see the stage house with their wooden pillars pierce to the bottom of the ocean. This...
