If you are looking for the wildest and most fascinating Indonesia, and experiencing the most pristine forms of forests and oceans, Raja Ampat is the spot that you cannot miss.

Raja Ampat is an archipelago comprising more than 1,500 small islands, cays and shoals surrounding the four main islands of Waigeo, Batanta, Salawati, and Misool. The archipelago truly is a paradise for animal lovers and scuba-diving enthusiasts. Why? It is home to 75% of the world's species, according to a report developed by the Nature Conservancy and Conservation International. You can find large primitive coral reef systems underwater, and the habitats for birds and endemic species of cuscus on the islands. Photography lovers are thrilled to capture the absolute beauty of all the living things amidst the thick jungles, as if you are playing the mobile game Pokémon GO in real life! You are encouraged to arrange homestays with the Papuan, so that you can mingle with the locals and get to observe their unique traditions. Let’s indulge ourselves into the whole experience of the spectacular Papuan dance and their hospitality.
