Unusual uniqueness

The world's most peculiar shaped island, Sulawesi resembles anything from an open-jawed crocodile to a specific letter "k". Lying between huge Kalimantan and The Maluku islands, Sulawesi is Indonesia's 3rd largest island with an area of 172.00 sq km (about the size of Kansas). The population of multi-racial Sulawesi is almost 13 millions. An amazing diversity of societies exists here, with distinct separation of old and new, traditional and modern within the many cultures themselves. There are fiercely Islamic Bugis and Makassarese of the S, the animist-Christian Torajas in the south central region, and the prosperous Christian Minahasana of the north. This variety, along with some spectacular mountains, coastline, lakes and plains, makes Sulawesi a highly tourists visited island who remains largely concentrated in the southern leg and specially in the Tanatoraja highland culture region. However Sulawesi also contains some of the most remote jungles areas in Indonesia, with unusual flora and fauna and nearly unknown tribes, and is unique place to explore.
