• Seram Island is still far away from the commercialisation and that means you cannot expect the best of luxurious accommodation, so it is better you carry your own toiletries and towels.
• Beware of the tourism scam. Be cautious of the things you are booking—accommodation, taxis etc.
• Since the infrastructure is poor and tourism has not flourished, you might have to pay extra prices for the experiences and facilities on the island of Seram.
• Enjoy the local cuisine and seafood during your stay on Seram Island. Non-vegetarians and sea food lovers will have a great time. There are fewer options for vegetarians.
How to Reach
By Air: There are flights from all over Indonesia to Amahai Airport located on the south coast of Seram Island. You can first take a flight to Jakarta and then catch a domestic plane to the island. Alternatively, take a flight to Ambon Island and then take a connecting flight to Seram.
By Sea: There are several ways of getting to Seram by sea from Ambon. The cheapest and most popular option is the car-ferry from Liang on Ambon to Kairatu on Seram, which is also used by the direct buses connecting the two islands.
So, pack your bags to get away from the concrete jungle and head to a place less known.
