Jayapura Travel Guide
Jayapura is the capital and largest city in Papua, Indonesia. The city has also been known in the past as Hollandia (1910-1962), Kota Baru 1962-1963) and even Sukarnopura (1963-1968).
International travel to Jayapura is almost non-existent and as such you are unlikely to meet other tourists. But many missionaries from around the world actually work here. This seems to mean that tourist touts are rare and beggars are not in the city. Furthermore, the closest thing a market stall holder will do to have you look at their goods is smile.
On the other hand, it also means that very few people speak English(but now days, more and more people actualy do), everyone wants to take a photo of you, and that arranging sightseeing activities may require more legwork that other destinations.
