Makassar, Bira and shipbuilding

I am now in South Sulawesi for my individual tour starting from Makassar.


This is the view from my first hotel.



And a beautiful sun set.

In the first stop Bira with a nice beach there was no internet at all.

In Sengkat there are a few internet cafes. One is just opposite my hotel.

But let me start first 20 kilometres out of Bira where I visited the shipbuilding industry, beautiful wooden ships from Makassar.


Tough work in 35 degrees.


Plenty of boats under construction, 80 per cent for foreigners, Ferry, my guide says.


A nearly finished boat owned by a Swiss guy who is going to tours for divers around Sulawesi.

A very typical Buginese house.
