Make it Mamuju for Fresh Air Experiences
Mamuju, the capital of the Indonesian province of West Sulawesi, is not only a great fresh air experience, but great for exploring the region and taking in the culture. Pre Covid-19 Silk Air ran four flights a week to Makassar where there are daily connecting flights – about 1 hour – to Mamuju. Currently, you would go to Mamuju for water sports, diving/snorkeling, hiking, island hopping, site seeing and exploring the region. For shopping, check out locally made crafts. Drop in the Bamboo Village where the ladies of the co-operative weave Seko Mandi – a traditional cloth and design from the Katumpang district. As Mamuju is almost exclusively Muslim, if you like drinking, coffee might be the strongest drink you will find. The traditional sailing race, the Sandeq Festival will next be held in August 2020. The Masjid Agung Mamuju is a very beautiful and charming mosque. The local governments are investing in tourism so if you want to experience it as is, go as soon as you can. You won’t find friendlier people anywhere in the world.
