West Timor Ethnic Exploration
On your Land Adventure, you will visit a traditional village, spend some time at the Lasiana Beach, visit the Kupang Museum for an insight into the ethnic culture through its artifacts and stop at a local art market. Kupang is the provincial capital of East Nusa Tenggara in the west coast of Timor. It's one of the largest urban centers of the province and its port played an important part during the Portuguese and Dutch colonial eras, and you can still see the remnants of the colonial presence in the city. You depart from the port for your first visit which will be at Oebelo Village. Oebelo Village is one of the traditional villages. This ancient village is known for its traditional music instrument, the sasando, which is made from lontar palm leaves. At the village you will be entertained with a Sasando music performance. From here you depart to Lasiana Beach which is situated on the north of Dili; it has a magnificent shelf road just inside the border of Timor Province where you can see the local people making palm sugar. You will take a break here to enjoy the beach and maybe a refreshing coconut drink. You then depart to Kupang Museum. Kupang Museum is very well presented and it is of great historical and cultural value, with its collection of fossils, anthropological artifacts, "Ikat" weavings textile, and other items that reflect East Nusa Tenggara's different ethnic groups. Your last stop will be at the Art Market; where you can find local souvenirs. The land adventure ends with a drive through town back to the harbor and your SeaDream yacht.
