Discover the neighborhoods of Ambon


The island of Ambon is located in Indonesia’s Maluku region, home to many historical buildings dating back to the days of the Dutch East Indies Company. The island is easily reached by air from Jakarta, as well as by boat from many parts of the country.

The Ambon City Center is where many of the historical buildings and cultural centers can be found, including the Commonwealth War Graves and Siwa Lima Museum, which has an impressive collection of artifacts and local art. There are also many hotels in the city center, most of which are convenient to the shops and restaurants of the town as well as the tourist sites.

The Harbor is a great access point for the waterfront resorts and beachside activities of the island, as well as water activities like snorkeling and diving. In late summer, this is also where one can watch the yacht race between an Australian city and Ambon, a great summertime activity near the water.
