Makassar

One of the nation's major port cities, the multicultural melting pot of Makassar gets most of its bustle from commerce and the shipping industry.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Makassar: Maros (Rammang-Rammang Village, Karst Maros, &more). There's lots more to do: indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, get in on the family fun at Trans Studio Makassar, take in the spiritual surroundings of Makassar Great Mosque, and stroll through Losari Beach.

For where to stay, maps, more things to do, and tourist information, use the Makassar trip itinerary builder app.

Paris, France to Makassar is an approximately 28-hour flight. You'll lose 7 hours traveling from Paris to Makassar due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Paris in September, plan for warmer days and somewhat warmer nights in Makassar: temperatures range from 40°C by day to 24°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 21st (Mon) so you can travel to Manado.

Sulawesi, an Indonesian island with four peninsulas, stands as the eleventh largest island in the world. The island features six national parks, 19 nature reserves, and three protected marine areas. The habitats here support a mix of Asian and Australian species, with 79 species of mammals endemic to the island, including the anoa (or dwarf buffalo), and Sulawesi palm civet. Thick, lush jungles back up to the island's jagged coastline. Villages provide a glimpse into the different ways of life that have evolved in these isolated communities.
