Kupang is the capital of East  Nusa Tenggara (NTT) Province and the main centre for the eastern part of Indonesia. Kupang is not only a travel hub, but an exciting destination in itself.

There are many cafes and night clubs and thanks to the devaluation of the Indonesian Rupiah they are incredibly good value - you can get a meal in a local warung for $1 Dollar 10 cents US or up to $2 dollars and good western food for a couple of dollars.
Kupang City comprises 180,27 square km² with a population of around 441,565 people (2020).

Adjacent to the town is Monkey Island with great white sand beaches and a lovely views, but you'll have to bring your own monkey.
