Welcome to West Timor

Within its mountainous, lontar palm–studded land, animist traditions persist alongside tribal dialects and chiefs preserve adat (traditional law) in traditional beehive-hut villages. Hit up one of the many weekly markets and you’ll not only get a feel for rural Timor life, but be the star attraction as you eavesdrop on one of 14 different languages spoken on the island. Although West Timor is a relatively undiscovered gem, you'll still be welcomed wherever you go.
