20 Sulawesi Pictures That Will Make You Want To Visit Indonesia

Last August I got the chance to spend a week exploring Sulawesi, one of the largest and most underrated islands in Indonesia, with a few days near Makassar in the south and then Manado in the north. These Sulawesi pictures are the result.

This huge tropical island one of the most amazing places I’ve been in my travels. The karst mountains, exotic wildlife, active volcanoes, and ancient artifacts were out of this world. It was one of the highlights of my year, even though I barely scratched the surface of what this island has to offer.

Hopefully these Sulawesi pictures inspire your travels too!
