Wild contrasts of Singapore, Java, Bali and Western Papua with Ian Robert Knight.
We are pleased to announce the Singapore + Indonesia photography adventure tour with Bangkok-based PWA photographer Ian Robert Knight from August 8th to 21st, 2021.
This 14-day photography tour will take guests on a packed adventure, covering the very different locations of Singapore and Indonesia. We start and end in Singapore – one of the most modern, cleanest and efficient cities in Asia. As a world financial capital, and home to the most expensive hotel ever built, it’s more than just a jumping point to other places in the region. There’s no shortage of things to see, experience and taste in this small city-state of just 240 square miles.
After Singapore, we head next door to Indonesia’s island of Java, where we spend time in the largest buddhist temple in the world, at Borobudur. Not too far from the huge city of Yogyakarta, lies the impressive temple that attracts worshippers and photographers alike. Seeing the sun rise up over the temple is impressive, and has been so for centuries. Next up will be the hedonistic and cultural hotspot of Bali — Indonesia’s playground. Bali has two sides to it – the luxury Bali style of private villas and posh restaurants along the coasts, and the cultural jungle enclave with craftsmen and traditional dancers in laid back Ubud.
Our final location will take us to the farthest eastern part of the country, to the province of Western Papua, which sits next door to Papua New Guinea. Here we’ll sit with the vanishing tribes of the Dani and Lani people, whose very lives are slowly being changed by modern Indonesia. These tribes still practice many traditional beliefs and hold ceremonies that we will have the fortune to witness. It will be something you’ll remember forever.
In 2022 the photography adventure tour will take place from August 7 to 20.
