Spectacular photographs of Bali and Indonesia from the air with the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG)’s Hidden Journeys
Ever wondered about what you are seeing from the air in that window seat? Well, IBG's Hidden Journeys Project wants to help by providing interactive guides to air travellers.
Here are some great photos from the flight path from Singapore to Sydney, exploring some of the world’s most remote and spectacular landscapes in Southeast Asia, namely Bali and Australia.
You can see the isolated outer reefs of the Timor Sea, and the spellbinding horizontal waterfalls of Australia’s Buccaneer Archipelago. Also visable are The Red Sand Dunes of the Simpson Desert. This new interactive guide illustrates an fantastic diversity of landscapes and culture as well as natural wonders.
Certainly the highlight from the flight path from Singapore to Sydney is the magical island of the Gods ~ Bali, Indonesia. The project explores the graceful ancient culture, the extreme volcanic landscape and the diverse ecology of the lush island.
