Orang-utans are pretty similar to us and this is no coincidence if their name means "man of the forest".
For a long time the jungles have been bulldozed for timber. But in recent decades the problem has got a lot worse because the land is being totally cleared to make way for palm oil plantations.
Tanjung Puting National Park is perhaps the only sanctuary where these great apes live in their natural habitat, in the safety of the area. By coming here, you'll discover the fragile eco system and the intelligence and the will to live of these magnificent creatures.

The first sight of wild lions is memorable, for a number of reasons. The cubs themselves are adorable, but the adults elicit a sort of tense wonder consisting of awe, respect for these powerful beasts, and something resembling fear but more like an awareness of one's mortality. They could easily kill us. But there are no words in the moment besides exclamations of disbelief.
But none of that matters to the lions, who live on this land and don't seem to pay any attention to visitors, driven in a couple of Toyota Land Cruisers that are completely open to the air, no windows for separation.

Upon his first viewing of Victoria Falls, David Livingstone wrote: "No one can imagine the beauty of the view from anything witnessed in England. It had never been seen before by European eyes; but scenes so lively must have been gazed upon by angels in their flights."

Victoria Falls - Zimbabwe
Devil's Cataract is the lowest of the five Falls, with a drop of 60 m. It is separated from the rest of the Falls by Boaruka Island, also known as Cataract Island.

If you spend some time in Bali, you’ll find yourself eating rice at least once, if not twice, a day.
Be it sticky, fried, coconut or sweet, rice comes with everything in Indonesia, but it’s not just a food staple. It represents life, prosperity and family fortunes, and the rice goddess Dewi Sri is worshipped on the islands of Java and Bali.
The rituals of rice farming (cycles of planting, tending, irrigating and harvesting) shape a Balinese farmer’s life, and the paddy fields and cleverly designed streams form the lush green landscape that characterizes this island.
However those little grains are the product of intensive labor: it means bending over all day, up to the knees in mud and water, under the hot sun.

Candi Borobudur - Java, Indonesia

By their own nature, world's biggest tourist attractions are busy places, crowded with sightseers seeking that perfect memory or epic photo. After all, it is to visit landmarks decorating the covers of guidebooks that many of us travel.
Rarely are these places of silence or contemplation, and finding a peaceful spot to appreciate a view or the moment is often simply impossible.
Unless, of course, you choose to visit at sunrise. That moment between night and day, when the birds are yet to wake and even the markets are still to open, brings with it a palpable stillness, and calms even the loudest mind - or the largest group of tourists.
This is no more true than atop Borobudur; the world's largest and (considered by many) greatest Buddhist temple, and Indonesia's most popular attraction !
