Tourist Office

Well, Saumlaki actually has one! It is hiding on the ground floor of the impressive Kantor Bupati in the uphill part of the town – enter under the driveway, then turn left inside. Staff seemed genuinely shocked to see me turn up there, but eventually gathered what little material they had to hand out: a map based on a Dutch-era source (complete with place names spellt the Dutch way), a very colorful brochure with zero info value, and most interestengly, some postcards – the only ones of the Tanimbars you are likely to get. Beyond these, they had little info to offer.
