Welcome to West Sumba

Even though kampung seem accustomed to visiting foreigners, gifts of betel nut help warm the waters with the older crowd and are a sign of respect.

Give yourself a few days around West Sumba. Once you have learned some basic manners as a guest arriving in a village – hopefully armed with some Bahasa Indonesia – it’s possible to do it without a guide, though it always helps to have one.
