Kupang is the capital of the Indonesian Province of Nusa Tenggara. It is the southernmost city of Indonesia, on the island of Timor, with a population of 350,000. (The NE half of the island is the independent country of Timor Leste.) During the 1600s the Dutch and Portuguese colonials vied for power and trade, dominated by the Dutch East India Company. The area was briefly ruled by the British in the 1800s, and the entire island became predominantly Christian. Japanese occupation during WWII and British bombing wasted the old town. Interestingly, Kupang was the final destination of William Bligh who was set adrift in an open boat during the Mutiny on the Bounty (1789).

Apart from a thriving fishing industry, the town is an important for its business centre, port, cement industry, Kupang Bay Salt Farm, and export of fish. There are no outstanding cultural or architectural attractions here, but it’s fun to get used to the chaos of this transport hub, with bemos and ojeks for transport. Walk around the waterfront district with its restaurants, and the business district with malls to the south. Kupang is the first port of call for yachts in the annual 'Sail Indonesia' rally that starts in Darwin, Australia (840km to the east), towards the end of July each year.

At the Kupang Museum there is a remarkable collection of fossils, anthropological relics, Ikat (cloth), woven artefacts, and displays that trace the historic interaction linking Timor's different ethnic groups. Visit the old cemetery, Oesapa fishing village, Fort Concordia, and the historical Old Port. Swim in the Crystal Cave, feed the monkeys at Monkey Cave, and taste the local cuisine. You may be able to visit the Mud Wells on Semau Island or visit Kera Island, a small paradise just 8 km offshore. Visit the Macassan fishing village, explore the beaches, and snorkel over Kera’s fringing reef.
