Indonesia is the world’s fourth most populous country; its population exceeds 260 million people. Raja Ampat archipelago – with its four main islands: Waigeo, Misool, Salawati, Batanta – makes up the easternmost past of Indonesia. In total, the archipelago consists of over 1,500 islands and islets, most of them uninhabited by humans. This is reflected in the extraordinary natural beauty of the region. The archipelago was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2002 and is considered the most beautiful dive site in the world.
It is worth mentioning that Raja Ampat is still relatively rarely visited by tourists. In Sorong people with fair skin and blond hair are still a sensation – the locals believe taking a picture with a blonde will bring them luck.
