    The first city to be a place transit is Makassar with Sultan Hasanuddin airport. Some city other than Jakarta has provided direct flights to Makassar.

    And Makassar became the first door to Wakatobi National Park.

    "Transit passengers are down and left behind will not be the responsibility of the airline," said the flight attendant to give an announcement while in Kendari.

    The journey will continue with one hour travel time. Ocean view with a row of atoll welcomed us.

    The atoll is a circular coral reef like a ring. A traveler can see the atoll while on the Wangi-Wangi Island.

    Arriving at Matohara Airport, a traveler has only a choice of transportation in the form of a rental car. There is no public transportation like in a big city.

    To reach the City of Wangi-wangi or commonly called Wanci, it will take about half an hour.

    Before any plane, sea lane is often used. However, the time taken was longer. From Kendari traveler must take a boat 4 hours.

    The journey is long, but it will certainly be worth the beauty of Wakatobi National Park.
