The region boasts the world's largest volcanic lake, waterfalls, and numerous islands. Because of the affinity to the water, visitors come to take part in a diverse range of activities like surfing, snorkeling, and birdwatching. Inland, traditional Malay homes in small settlements showcase rustic architecture alongside more formal and ornate Buddhist temples.
