Make sure to book accommodation in advance
Raja Ampat is one of the most sought after tourist attractions by tourists. Its natural beauty cannot be doubted. Before visiting Raja Ampat, be sure to book a room for a place to stay while traveling. Tourists can choose resorts or homestays located on the beach for a place to stay.
To save the budget, it would be better if you choose a homestay instead of a resort. However, of course the facilities provided will not be as luxurious as the resort. Homestay is usually in the form of a simple house and blends with the residents' settlements. Many homestays have only leaf roofs and wooden walls.
If you want to get excess facilities, of course it is advisable to choose a resort. Resort is made in a more modern style with complete facilities. In fact, it could be that the resort will provide water sport facilities. (M)
