Indonesia is a mystical land of wonder an alluring mix of exotic cultures, volcanic landscapes rising from the sea, and an unrivaled underwater paradise. For travelers seeking a journey outside of the ordinary, Indonesia will exceed your expectations. With over 17,000 islands and 1,000 ethnic groups, the indigenous cultures are a contrast of modern Bali to what one could best describe as taking a journey back in time, the rarely visited tribes located in the far corners of the archipelago.
The wild, untouched land of Borneo is home to the Dayak Tribe. Once known for being headhunters, they are now nomadic farmers growing food to support the village. Village life, their community, is centered around the Longhouse. Over 200 meters long and built on stilts, it is their communal dwelling as well as the center of village life.
The Bajau Tribe are nomadic people who, for hundreds of years, have traveled the seas around Sulawesi and Borneo, dependent on the ocean for sustenance. While most Bajau people prefer their traditional sea-gypsy life, Wakatobi is home to a Bajau village and one of the best places to experience their unique seafaring traditions.
Relatively untouched by the modern world, Papua remains one of the last frontiers. A pure delight for intrepid travelers. Its southern shores are home to the Asmat people. An ethnic group known for their elaborate wood carvings which capture the essence of this region. Indonesia is a treasure trove of culture and experiences. Her distant shores tucked safely away from the modern world, are waiting to be discovered.
