The province of East Kalimantan in Indonesia comprises the eastern part of Borneo. It is home to the Derawan Islands, which is a biodiversity hotspot that features 872 species of reef fishes, 507 species of coral, and invertebrates and protected species. The islands are known for having the largest green turtle nesting site in the country. Moreover, East Kalimantan features a unique natural site, namely the Labuan Cermin Lake at Biduk-biduk district. The lake is noted for having fresh water on top, with an estimated two metres thickness and sea water underneath.


Datadawai Airport has one small terminal that handles all flights and airport-related operations and services. The terminal, which follows suit with the overall design and look of all airports as created by the government, is complete with security personnel and equipment, pre-flight checks and services, provision for refuelling, and many others. It is to be noted that Indonesian airport security personnel are strict to point – and will insist on checking all the luggage that a passenger has. This is because of the Indonesian government's fight against illegal activities, which may include drugs, human trafficking, and other related activities.
