Timor

INTRODUCTION

Timor is an island at the southern end of Maritime Southeast Asia, north of the Timor Sea. The island is divided between the sovereign states of East Timor on the eastern part and Indonesia, on the western part. The Indonesian part, also known as West Timor, constitutes part of the province of East Nusa Tenggara.

West Timor

With amazing traditional villages, rugged countryside and empty beaches, West Timor is an undiscovered gem. Deep within its mountainous, lontar palm–studded interior, animist traditions persist alongside tribal dialects, and ikat-clad, betel nut–chewing chiefs govern beehive-hut villages. Hit one of the many weekly markets in tribal country and you’ll get a feel for rural Timor life, while eavesdropping on several of some 14 languages spoken on the island. In West Timor even Bahasa Indonesia is often a foreign tongue. Except, of course, in Kupang, the coastal capital and East Nusa Tenggara’s top metropolis, which buzzes to a frenetic Indonesian beat.

Sabu Island

INTRODUCTION

Sawu Islands, Indonesian Kepulauan Sawu, Sawu also spelled Savu, Sawoe, or Sabu, island group in the Savu Sea, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. The island group includes Sabu, Raijua and several islets located about 100 miles (160 km) west of the southern tip of the island of Timor. The typography of the islands are generally low and almost flat; elevation ranges from 3 to 330 feet (1 to 100 metres).

The islands are densely populated, and the principal occupation is agriculture. Corn (maize) and cotton are the main products, and there are extensive coconut plantations along the coasts. Some fruits and vegetables are also grown, and cattle and ponies are raised. Exports are mainly copra and fish. Most of the population practices Protestant Christianity; a significant minority follows a local religion. Seba and Baah, the chief towns on Sabu Island, are linked by road.
