Silversea Expedition Cruises A BAU-BAU

BAU-BAU

Buton Island seems to be small compared to its neighbor Sulawesi, but with slightly more than 4,400 square kilometers (just under 1,700 square miles) it is Indonesia’s 19th largest island. Much of the lowland consists of uplifted karst and other limestone formations. Due to its hilly topography it still has a considerable amount of forest; most of it is seasonal tropical lowland forest with mangroves in coastal areas. View more

Visitors to Bau-Bau, the main city on Buton Island, may well be welcomed with a mangaru, which is a welcome dance performed by three men to respect guests and to ward off enemies. Overlooking Bau-Bau is Benteng Keraton Buton, known as having been the seat of the sultan. Claiming to be the biggest fort in Indonesia and made of coral blocks, it commands an excellent view over the city and port and the sea beyond.

Buton Palace Fortress

See the highlights of Bau-Bau, the main city on Buton Island, with a population of over 137,000. Culturally, Buton is incredibly diverse for a small island; there are over 120 local languages spoken and each ethnic group has their own practices, ceremonies, and traditional clothing. Today's excursion is an ideal way to experience to the local culture of Buton.


Begin your morning with a warm traditional welcome right at the port. Then drive a few minutes to visit a traditional market to see local people selling and buying their daily needs. Next, travel another 30 minutes to a fisherman village to witness daily life here. Observe local women making stunning ikat weaving and fishing nets in their wooden houses called rumah panggung, or stilt houses.


The highlight of this tour is your visit to Buton Palace Fortress (Benteng Keraton), an unusual fort built by a local sultan centuries ago. The fortress has received an award from the Guinness Book Records as the world's widest fort, as it is 3km long. Made of coral blocks, the fort commands an excellent view over the city and port and the sea beyond. The fortress is surrounded by its original villages where the old houses are still well-maintained. Here you have opportunity to enjoy a cultural show, with the performance of various dances, as well as regional culinary specialties that served by locals wearing traditional costume.


Inside the fort is the house of the former sultan, which today serves as a fascinating small private museum. After the performance, visit the Sultan's old mosque and museum that is home to many antique heirlooms. Return to the port.
