No wonder why many people are not really aware of the existence of this part of the world. East Nusa Tenggara (= Nusa Tenggara Timur = N.T.T.) is far from the crowdiness of modern activity centres which had been formed and promoted long before, due to different historical process.

If you deal with night life and metropolitan model, or with complementary articles produced through foreign hi-tech process, East Nusa Tenggara will then be the least suitable. On the contrary, if you are after tourism alternatives which are oriented towards nature or traditional culture, you will find an extravaganza in this remote archipelago.

I'ts hard to find words to describe the extraordinary atmosphere of East Nusa Tenggara. Some observers try to put it as "sacred nuances of nature and culture that are integrated in a characteristic people's life". You will feel it in your first visit. If you go there, often you will feel like a part of the whole realm.

Almost all kinds of tourism and activities are available in their original specific forms, as from eco-tourism, marine, scientific, cultural, to agro-tourism, as well as business. They can be explored directly from their mnatural resources: land and sea/underwater panorama, mineral deposits, forest products, farming/fishery and other marine products. Besides that, cultural expressions are available in a great variety as from hand-woven ikat textile, hansicraft, to the traditional ceremonies, in addition to the study of social structure, tribal philosophy, and ethnic culture and history.

East Nusa Tenggara always welcomes you as your idea and paticipation for its future development.
