Cultural Travel to Oceanic Land

Cultural travel to the South Pacific is a trip of a lifetime. For years, I have been attracted to objects of art and wonder created by people who live in Borneo, Pau Pau New Guinea, and Indonesia. Oceanic artwork and objects from this area of the world reflect the beliefs and rich traditions of the people who live there. This is a cultural traveler’s dreamland. It is one of the last frontiers where masses of tourists find it too far to travel to. The textiles and carved wooden objects are really quite amazing. Borneo is the third largest island in the world. Located north of Java, Indonesia, Borneo’s rainforest is 130 million years old.  Sandra Scott reveals her take on the Island of Borneo.

The name “Borneo” may conjure up images of people living in a primitive manner, but Kota Kinabalu is a dynamic city with malls, four-lane highways and even Burger Kings. I am always interested in learning about various ethnic groups and their lifestyles. Even though in the remote parts of Borneo some people still follow a traditional way of life the best place to learn about the different groups is at a cultural village.

 

Oceanic people and oceanic places are truly natural wonders  for the cultural traveler. Approximately 73% of the Island of Borneo is Indonesian territory. Indonesia, Borneo, and the South Pacific offers the cultural traveler a view into the rich diversity of people, place, history, flora and fauna, and wildlife. You can make your plans to go now, before it becomes the world’s newest tourist stop. Read Sandra Scott’s article here.
