Ambon, Maluku is the capital of the spice islands. It is a pretty island, and the main area of town can have pretty views that overlook the bay. It is also a bustling city, and in no way is the air perfumed with spices like I thought it would be. (Think rotting durian fruit, fried foods, and gasoline fumes). It is, however, perfumed with a rich culture that I enjoyed visiting. They weren’t used to tourists here, and I found that I spent most of my time posing for pictures. I loved riding the becaks or bicycle rickshaws to get around. I did find that finding good restaurants here was a bit of a challenge. It is however, worth a visit for a few days to see some of the sites and do a little shopping.
Finally a good café in Ambon!
