Sorong (population 200,000) is a coastal city in the eastern Indonesian province of West Papua, 100km south of the Equator, and bordering the Sorong Regency. It is the gateway to Indonesia's Raja Ampat Islands, rich in coral reefs in an area considered the heart of the world's coral reef biodiversity. It is also the logistics centre for Indonesia's thriving eastern oil and gas frontier, and a major container terminal. Sorong has experienced strong growth in recent years, and further expansion is anticipated as the city becomes linked by road to other frontier towns in Papua's Bird's Head Peninsula.

The city has a tropical monsoon climate. Early in the day visit the Pasar Jimbutan Puri – the fish market next to the moored fishing vessels. When shopping, check out the local styles of batik cloth, and be sure to buy ones of good quality. Also, Irian Jaya Arts and Craft is recommended for its good selection of tribal masks and crafts, including penis gourds. Pasar Boswesan and other markets welcome foreigners who arrive not so frequently in the city.

Just one kilometer north of the ferry port, on a hill, is a monastery Vihara Buddha Jayanti with a seven-tiered pagoda, and good view of the harbour. A half-hour from Sorong is one of its only beaches, Tanjung Kasuari Beach. For better beaches one goes to the Raja Ampat islands to the west. If visiting, remember your anti-malarial medication and mosquito repellent towards evening.
