Four Kings of Raja Ampat | EID in Papua, Indonesia
Raja Ampat, which literally translates to “Four Kings”, comprises of four main island groups around Birds Head Peninsula of West Papua, Indonesia. Truly one of the last hidden paradises on the planet, secluded far at the corner of Papua the second biggest island in the world.
Scattered in hundreds of jungle covered islets, Raja Ampat is known for its beaches and coral reefs, uber-rich with marine life.
Raja Ampat is the place where you can enjoy simple life with daily routines. The most beautiful and breath taking sunset is the natural phenomenon which you can watch every evening.
Life on the islands is deliciously slow and sleepy Most islands have no motorized vehicles, just sandy footpaths between the colorful wooden houses. The locals are welcoming and ready to smile all the time Kids will follow your every single step they are very curious about foreign travelers.
