Are there major safety and security concerns I should be aware of?
Risks are an inherent part of any travel. To stay safe in Sukadana and the rest of Indonesia, we recommend the same strategies you would use to stay safe in any new place: be cautious, ask questions, learn about the towns/cities you are in, know where the more risky locations are, use common sense, and be aware. Indonesia experiences periodic acts of political violence, civil unrest, and terrorism, but exposure to this is quite uncommon in Sukadana and the rest of Indonesian Borneo. Visitors should be most vigilant about these issues in Jakarta and other travel hubs. Please review the U.S. State Department website for the most up-to-date travel warnings, advisories, and other precautions.
