"The odd-shaped island of Sulawesi resembles a giant wind-blown spider lying in the azure seas east of Borneo. On the southwest side of the island is the port of Ujung Pandang, formally known as Makassar, a large bustling city with several new tourist resorts. It is also the traditional home of the Bugis people who have long been known for their skills in seamanship . and piracy."
