View Full Version : Palu is a windy dry windy city.
I have been here for a week. I had a great time skin diving in Palu bay. Are there any bule in Palu? I am having problems finding information on things to do here in Palu. Another problem is I need some anti-inflamitory, NSAIDS and can't even find aspirin. If someone has any experience in Palu or can direct me to the correct thread I would be grateful. Thanks...
I was there not long ago. Am used to go to Palu a few times a year for business and have not seen many foreigners. There are some but I don't know where they hide :smile2:. In Towale, Tanjung Karang or Donggala I think you should be able to find some foreigners since there are some fine diving around. Pantai Barat also would be a place I would try. If you don't find, come 1000km up north.

I was there for work back in 2004. Not much there there. But yes, it is in a rain-shadow. You can easily see how dry it is from the air when you fly in...
Ya Hombre I noticed the dryness too. Palu has a very different look from any city in Indonesia that I have seen. Less trees, green vegetation. Cows and goats roaming freely throughout the city keep the lawns mowed. The bay has an incredibly beautiful drive along the west shore while driving from Donggala to Palu. I wish I had more time to travel the east side of the bay. Maybe even better?

The dryness on land is not unrelated to the good diving offshore. The dryness on land is likely caused by the dark currents offshore which fail to provide the land with moisture. It is this cold current that brings the plankton needed for the profusion of marine life. Isn't the natural world magnificent, wondrous and grand enough on its own?
