Sulawesi and the Spice Islands. The very names promise romance and adventure. They seem to be islands many have heard of, but few can place. They’re actually found to the east of Borneo and South of the Philippines, and still remain very much off the beaten tourist trail. And the experiences you can have here are truly unbelievable.
