Introducing Palu

Palu, the capital of Central Sulawesi, only came to prominence during the Japanese occupation in WWII. Situated in a rain shadow for most of the year, it’s one of the driest places in Indonesia. Generally the days are hot, and the nights are tolerably cool. Most travellers don’t detour to this part of Sulawesi unless they’re trekking in Lore Lindu National Park or heading on to Tanjung Karang.
