The Sweet Ambon

A bustling metropolis compared to the rest of the sleepy, relaxing island, Ambon offers plenty of historical landmarks and chances to learn about the region's spice trade. From Ambon, it's easy to access the pristine beaches and seasides of the surrounding islands via numerous transport links. Snorkeling and diving are also available on the island itself on one of Ambon's two beaches. Don't miss an opportunity to try the region's specialty dish, nasi kuning. This dish is a yellow spicy rice, and can be eaten for any meal of the day. Visitors should be aware that violence between the region's Christian and Muslim populations has blighted Ambon since 1999, with the last known incident occurring in 2007. Take stress off the schedule by using our Indonesia trip generator.
