Ultimate Traveller: Impressions of Indonesia

The Indonesian archipelago spreads over 5,200 km between the Asian mainland and Australia, all of it within the tropics, and comprises 17,000 islands. Its ethnic, cultural and linguistic diversity is correspondingly great - more than 500 languages and dialects are spoken by its 246 million people, whose fascinating customs and lifestyles are a major attraction. The largely volcanic nature of the islands has created tall cloud-swept mountains swathed in the green of rice terraces or rainforests, dropping to blindingly bright beaches and vivid blue seas, the backdrop for Southeast Asia's biggest wilderness areas and wildlife sanctuaries. This show and lecture will explore the islands of Sumatra, Java, Borneo, Flores, Komodo and Sulawesi. We conclude our journey visiting the legendary Baliem Valley in the highlands of Western New Guinea. Admission: $15 per lecture. Register at 604-925-7270 or online by clicking on the links below.
