Sulawesi is a hidden wonder which combines stunning high-country scenery with world class diving in pristine waters. Heading inland to Tana Toraja, you come face to face with an ancient culture which dates back to around 30,000 BC. There are over 400 granite megaliths in the region. Elaborate burial ceremonies still take place. These often take several days and include spectacular dances, dramatic ritual chants and the slaughtering of buffaloes. Wakatobi, a marine national park, boasts world-class diving. It is, however, matched by the lesser known Togian Islands. Way off the beaten track, the Togians offer the opportunity to dive or snorkel around a volcano with dolphins, manta rays, eagle rays, pilot whales, barracudas and huge groupers.
Bunaken, another marine park, has some of the world's most exceptional coral gardens. It’s also worth heading off to beautiful Lore Lindu, an important forested national park in the central highlands which is home to prolific wildlife, including some 77 endemic bird species, and some remarkable megaliths. Sulawesi is the go-to gem to discover
