Info : Shopping at a Toraja Market

Toraja local market is filled with herbs, spices, local produce and all kinds of people and is well worth a visit. Though traditional money is accepted in Toraja, you will soon find out that the local 'currency' in Toraja is cattle! So for a unique insight into how this community functions head down to the local cattle market- if you’re lucky you may even spot the exclusive and expensive 'Mercedes' cow! Life for the Toraja revolves around death, and the local people spend their days earning the money to send away their dead properly. These animals play a crucial, though gruesome, part in the funeral rites of Toraja, hence are exceptionally prized possession.

Customer Feedback
Our guide (Jun) in Jogjakarta and Borobudur was exceptionally good - excellent with our two boys (aged 5 and 3), really friendly and informative and added a lot of value. Our boat guide (Jack) was amazing too - he was brilliant with the boys, really thought about making the most of the 3 days, very flexible and really did everything possible to make sure we all had a great time.
