If you're looking for an off-the-beaten path in Indonesia, consider Makassar in South Sulawesi.
There's more to Indonesia than Bali or Yogyakarta. From good food to nice beaches, Makassar, the capital of South Sulawesi, has a lot to offer!

Have you ever heard of Kawah Ijen in East Java? The volcano spouts blue flame, and miners harvest the sulfur there daily. Read my experience here.
Hiking to Ijen Crater may not be that easy, but seeing the volcano's blue flame makes all the challenges of going there very much worth it.

This small capital of Perak state, however, has more to offer. It's not only about the delicious kway teow (fried noodles) and low cost of living, but more importantly, it is also about heritage.
Beyond delicious food, Ipoh has loads to offer travelers who are interested in culture and history. Walk around the city to appreciate the Ipoh heritage.
