Located about a two hour drive from Makassar, this quaint town was the erstwhile abode of the Dutch. Make sure you stop at the local fruit and vegetable market to see the local produce. Highlight of the Malino highlands tour is the visit to the tea garden .Wonderful views, cool misty weather and a cup of tea makes for a unmissable thing to do.
