If you’ve got months to spare, this sounds like a spectacular trip. Sign up now for this year or start planning for next year. Sail Indonesia 2012 will depart from Darwin on Saturday, July 28 for its twelfth annual rally and visit 25 ports over three months including Bali and Singapore. During the rally participants are invited to participate in a linked series of events and cultural festivals at the different stopovers across Indonesia. As in past years the local administration at each of these Indonesian islands has planned a number of events at the time of the rally’s visit which often includes a ceremonial welcome and dinner as well as cultural and arts displays and also dance performances. Participants will be able to see some of the more remote, interesting and less developed parts of Indonesia as they cross the country often away from the well worn tourist areas. At each of these stopovers you will be able to experience different peoples and their cultures, different lifestyles, different arts, different crafts, wonderful foods and of course different languages. However, everyone is welcome to follow their own schedule in exploring these ports. For more information or to sign up, go to www.sailindonesia.net.
