All 6 provinces on Sulawesi , namely North Sulawesi, Gorontalo, Central Sulawesi, South East Sulawesi, West Sulawesi, and South Sulawesi will definitely take part to exhibit their finest tourism features.

Formerly known as Celebes, Sulawesi with its bizarre shape of four spindly arms spinning outward is easily recognizable. But bizarre is beautiful and in its contortions are its character, with an incredible diversity of people, cultures and landscapes spread across its length and breadth.
From the mystical culture of Tana Toraja and the seafaring prowess of Makassar in the south, to the underwater paradise of Wakatobi in the south east, the natural beauty of Lore Lindu National Park and Togean Island in Central Sulawesi, Manado, Gorontalo, Bunaken, and all the splendors of Northern Sulawesi, Sulawesi is truly an island filled with amazing pristine wonders.
