The Timor Sea separates the island from neighboring Australia, which lies just about 500 kilometers away from the westernmost part of Timor. This explains the untypical landscape of the island, which is unlike anything visitors are used to from Southeast Asia. Instead of lush rainforests and rapid rivers, Timor is dominated by savanna woodlands, meadows and dry hills. Kupang is the largest city and the capital of East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia’s southernmost province.
