East Nusa Tenggara (Nusa Tenggara Timur or NTT) is one of the 33 provinces in Indonesia archipelago, which is not as famous as Bali in the west Nusa Tenggara, but actually have interesting landscape and also known for their beautiful traditional textile or Tenun Ikat (wrap weaving). Why not visiting East Nusatenggara on one of your holiday? 

The province has over 500 islands, and the three largest islands are Sumba, Flores and Timor.
