Ready to travel around Asia with me?
If you had to pick one special moment from your holidays, what would you pick and why? When I was asked this question recently, one place instantly popped into my mind.
Raja Ampat isn’t like anywhere else on the planet. Located, off the coast of West Papua (the Indonesian part of Papua New Guinea), it’s a region that’s tricky to reach, and as a result, totally untouristy. It’s raw and rugged, and home to the most biodiverse waters in the world. I wondered whether there was more going on under the water than above it?
Before my trip, I went into a Google frenzy, finding so many incredible photos of the region’s paradise islands, emerald green waters and a magical underwater world of fish, sharks and more. Of all the places I’d visit in Indonesia, this was the one I was most excited about!
