THE NOBLE BAJAU PEOPLE OF INDONESIA

July 27, 2017

We came across this wonderful photo essay in the Seattle Times last month about the Bajao village of Sampela, located in the Wakatobi region of southeastern Sulawesi, which SeaTrek often visits when we are in the region. It’s a fascinating read, so please click on the image of Tadi above to visit the website and enjoy learning about their fascinating way of life through the beautiful imagery. And if you get inspired and would like to visit Sampela for yourselves, click here to see the cruises we have to the region so you can experience it firsthand.

 

Next month sees the 72nd anniversary of Indonesia’s independence, and the flags will be flying high as these very proud people celebrate their nationhood with massive celebrations from one end of the country to the other. And celebrate they must, for it is a beautiful country filled with so much wonder that you have to see it up close to believe it. And just in case your clients haven’t yet booked their end-of-year holidays, that’s where SeaTrek comes in. Drop us a line and ask us about our Independence Day specials and then get out there and experience some of this incredible country first hand.

WAYAG? WHY NOT!

Can you imagine yourself here in Raja Ampat’s Wayag Archipelago, playing, swimming, relaxing, snorkelling, sunning, funning, laughing, and leaving all your worldly worries behind? Stop imagining and give us a call!

GOING WITH THE FLOW

When it comes to yoga, Bali is one of the most visited destinations on the planet for practitioners of this ancient art. SeaTrek is taking it one step further by melding yoga’s spirituality with the excitement of travel and adventure, on a brand-new yoga cruise in June 2018. Join international yogis, Lindsay Gonzalez and Melody Massey, as they lead you on a journey of discovery through yoga and meditation for eight days of cruising from Bali to the Komodo National Park. Quench your wanderlust and inspire your innermost self on our beautiful ‘pinisi’ schooner, with delicious meals, the best of company, glorious nature, and daily yoga and mindfulness practices. This is an all-levels yoga and travel experience geared towards anyone who wants to take their yoga practice out of the studio and into Indonesia’s spectacular and natural surroundings.

 

LATE YEAR SPECIALS

If you are looking for a place to send your clients at the end of this year, a place where the skies are clear, the sea and air are warm, and the underwater world is teaming with all sorts of multi-coloured fish and marine exotica, then you should look no further than the Raja Ampat National Park. To make those decisions a little easier, SeaTrek is offering a Bring-A-Kid-For-Free special on all Jewels of Raja Ampat Cruises during the 2017 end of year season. What this means is that if you book for two adults in a triple cabin with a child of 12 or under, you can bring that child free of charge. Bring two kids, and they will get a cabin for themselves and you pay for just one child. But be quick, New Year will be here before you know it.  We are also offering all agents an extra $400 cash back on top of commissions on any of our expert led cruises between September 2017 and Jan 2018. All deals are for cruises booked before the end of August 2017.
