North Sulawesi


North Sulawesi


Contributor FxOviCorua created this beautiful drone video of North Sulawesi, the most geographically remote part of the gigantic Indonesian Island.  The province is an extremely long peninsula which extends north and then many hundreds of km/mi east from the center of the island, the eleventh largest in the world by land area.  The two main cities near its tip, Manado and Bitung, actually lie closer to Mindanao in the Philippines than they do to Makassar, the largest city of Sulawesi.   

South Sulawesi


Beautiful East Indonesia


Sulawesi in eastern Indonesia is one of the world's most unusually shaped islands.  Most of its considerable land area is on four peninsulas that jut out from a small center.  In this video, contributor and drone pilot r_prayugo gives us a bird's eye view of the people and landscape of the southern peninsula, called South Sulawesi.  The indigenous people in this region are called the Toraja, meaning "people of the uplands" referring to the mountainous nature of this part of the giant island.

Labengki is an Indonesian island which lies off the southeastern part of Sulawesi.  It is considered quite remote, accessible by boat from the city of Kendari, the capital of Southeast Sulawesi.  It's known as a diving destination, popular with the more adventurous pursuers of that activity.  The small island is surrounded by numerous even smaller islands, some of which do not even appear on most maps.  In this video by Abekbaek, you'll get a bird's eye view of this bit of tropical paradise.
