Traveljunkieindonesia.com – I can honestly say I haven’t been bored in Kakaban Island. Travel is life. And if you miss travel, you miss life.

To me, boring is traffic, packed trains, supermarket queues, looking for parking spaces, not seeing the sun or the sky for days on end, not diving and snorkling, not sunbathing and reading a book on the beach; there’s none of that here.

Yay, I love Kakaban Island in Derawan Islands, East Borneo – Indonesia. So, here are six reasons why I guarantee travel junkies will love Kakaban Island:
