- My third visit to Indonesia brought me to the island of Sumatra. I travelled by sea and land from Singapore all the way up to Pulau weh, the destination of this report, at the top of the much larger island of sumatra. After reading about the tsunami and the conflicts between the Acehnese and the Indonesian gov't I expected to find the place a bit beat up and in recovery. Although I had my concerns about going, I was keen to get diving and I heard Pulau Weh was the best sumatra had to offer. You might think this may have been the state before the tsunami but it must have destroyed a lot of the underwater life. I had this thought but was amazed to arrive and after a few dives have seen more life and healthy coral then I saw in Bali, the Gilis or even Sulawesi on earlier trips to Indonesia.
