If you are seeking a weekend break from Jakarta featuring fresh seafood and tropical islands in a little-visited destination, then Southeast Sulawesi might just be for you.
The island of Sulawesi features two legs extending down to the south, and it is on the eastern leg that a remote paradise can be found. Nestled between the jungle and ocean, Kendari, the capital of Southeast Sulawesi, is one of the most secluded cities in Indonesia, with no main highway linking it to the rest of Sulawesi.
In recent years, though, this city of some 300,000 people has been gaining prominence thanks to a mining boom, and now boasts numerous high-end hotels where you can relax in comfort while exploring this hidden part of Indonesia, as well as several malls and all of the hustle and bustle of a modern city.
But it's not the shopping that you come to Kendari for — it's for the nature and the ability to connect with a unique part of Indonesia.
For those wanting to get off the beaten track for a weekend escape, Kendari provides the perfect base to get out and explore, with daily flights available from Jakarta to Kendari, via Makassar.
