We explored Makassar with interest taking in this little known destination and learning more about the unique culture of the region.


Our trip to Ramung Ramung about one hour's drive from Makassar was a special treat, on a small tributary river in open canoe cruising through a mix of jungle,limestone, cliffs , caves and water birds to reveal an inland fish farm where aftertea was served.

How closer can you be to a special place!
