Why Indonesia for my IDC?

With over 17,000 islands, the country is home to some of the best diving in the world. As an added benefit, living cost is relatively low, but most importantly, the food is delicious!

Sulawesi is the fourth largest island in Indonesia, and we are located in North Sulawesi. This area is famous for diving at the Bunaken National Marine Park, the Lembeh Strait and the Bangka Archipelago. Subsequently, divers all over the world flock to North Sulawesi. To photograph critters, for instance, or to dive with turtles in tropical warm water. This area has so much biodiversity, it’s considered some of the highest in the world.
