Khiri Travel Indonesia Opens Office in Makassar, Sulawesi

Khiri Travel Indonesia has opened an office in Makassar, Sulawesi.

The new Sulawesi office will look after Khiri itineraries in Sulawesi, Kalimantan, The Moluccas, and Papua.

 Khiri Travel Indonesia General Manager, Herman Hoven, said, “Khiri’s ambition is to be a specialist DMC with our own people on the ground across the Indonesian archipelago.”

Apart from its existing FIT clients, Khiri Travel Indonesia will be running its first ever group tours in Kalimantan in 2018 for a major UK operator.

Sulawesi boasts a great variety of cultural and natural destinations such as Torajaland (known for its trekking, cycling, lake boat trips, easy rafting and elaborate village funerals) and Tangkoko National Park. Sulawesi also offers great marine biodiversity in destinations such as the Togian Islands and near Manado.

There is also the lesser-known destination of Wakatobi, a cluster of remote islands with a rich marine culture and home of the Bajo people, who live in stilt houses in the sea.

The Khiri Sulawesi office will also run trips to Raja Ampat with its unique Papuan culture and enticing island archipelagos that are ideal for day trips or overnight cruises. Guests visiting Raja Ampat (four kingdoms) can hike in the footsteps naturalist Alfred Wallace – or swim in a saltwater lake with millions of harmless jellyfish.

Kalimantan has some of the world’s oldest rainforests and is home to the famous Orangutan among other primates. He recommends cruising down river on a local Klotok boat through the rainforest and staying with Dayak people in a traditional long house.

“The Moluccas, or Spice Islands, have an incredible historical significance. Papua is very large unspoilt, less visited, almost mystic, corner of the archipelago, yet with great accessibility,” Hoven said.

Trips to remote Papua will also eventually be created from the Khiri Sulawesi office.

The new Khiri Travel Indonesia office in Sulawesi is located at Jalan Gunung Rinjani No.7, New Jasmine, Metro Tanjung Bunga, Makassar. The office is Khiri’s fifth in Indonesia after Lombok, Bali, Labuan Bajo (Flores), and Yogyakarta (Java).
