Aceh travel guide

4.1
Scuba & Snorkeling · Specialty Museums · Beaches
The province of Aceh, situated at the northwestern tip of Indonesia, holds many natural wonders. The lush tropical jungle boasts some of the greatest biodiversity in the Asian Pacific, supporting critically endangered Sumatran orangutans, tigers, elephants, and rhinos. The coral reefs off the Aceh coast are equally fecund, creating a diver's and snorkeler's paradise. You can hike and climb to the top of mountains and volcanoes, or stretch out on miles of undeveloped beaches. The towns and cities hold traditional architecture and grand mosques. All visitors planning a vacation to Aceh must be aware that Sharia law is in effect, including for tourists. Failure to comply risks severe reprisals, not only from the local authorities, but from religious police and vigilante crowds.
