Maluku

Maluku also known as the Moluccas or the Spice Islands, is a region of Indonesia consisting of approximately 1000 islands, that lies between Sulawesi and Papua.

A place which is the transition zone between the Asian and Australian fauna and flora, and also between the Malay-based cultures of western Indonesia and those of Melanesia, Maluku is a wonderful place to have a vacation in.

In the era of the Dutch traders, the islands of Maluku were the only place on earth where nutmeg, mace and several other valuable spices were grown. In fact, Maluku first came to be on the world map as the place where exotic spices could be imported from. Now, however, Maluku is also a well-known tourist destination.

 

A province of Indonesia where only 10% of the total surface area is land, Maluku is surrounded by seas, that is, at places thousands of meters deep. But, the vast sea-coasts and long beaches are not just the topographical features of the islands.

The Maluku islands are forest-covered, and mountainous. The mountains are mostly craters, and, the islands of Maluku are sitting atop one of the most active volcanic belts of the world. In fact, the last 400 years have seen more than 70 eruptions in the Maluku, Indonesia.

Maluku has many interesting places to see, that will make the visit of a tourist worthwhile.
