Wakatobi archipelago is similar to

This underwater paradise is worldly-known amongst the sea explorers as world-class diving, but the wonders of Wakatobi do not only lie below the surface of its vast waters but also on the islands. Camp in Kahyangan Summit amid picturesque surroundings of seemingly never-ending luscious grassland, experience peaceful starry nights and wake up with breathtakingly gorgeous sunrises. Dare to swim in Sombano Lake which considered sacred by locals; swimming in the lake is allowed but discouraged, as according to local folklore, a mystical black crocodile resides within. A visit to Wakatobi means discovering many things from the mysterious seafaring Bajos (sea gypsies), the heritage of ruins hidden in the forests, to the abundant flora and fauna, with lush forests, endless mangroves, endemic birds and the famous flying foxes are bound to awaken your wild spirit.
