Banda islands are quite a lost place in the Maluku, Indonesia, 2000 kms from Java. Pulau Ai is one of the less visited island with max 6 tourists when we stayed there and many days being the only bule (westerners). As you can imagine, this is a good place to meet authentic charming people. The atmosphere was very relaxed despite being during the Ramadan which is especially tough to go through with intense heat, long days and physical work (no desk jobs here !). Once again great welcoming people.
