Travel from Jakarta to Jaya Pura, I use to take an EXPRESS Air LINE, the air craft have two Stop Over, the first is at Ujung Pandan, South Sulawesi, and the second stop is SORONG. A moment before landing, we can see a beautiful scene of Sorong from above, it was beautiful, the blue ocean, the harbour and the ships, a stretch of housing, afew small canoe, a river just behind the airport
IRIAN JAYA BARAT (West Irian Jaya) Province is a New Province in INDONESIAN PAPUA, but Sorong is an old city, it was industrial city, where it was the site of Indonesian Oil Company-PERTAMINA- . When we look at the Map of PAPUA, the island was look like a bird, and at the map, we can find that SORONG is located at the Head of the Bird. Sorong view from above is look like a nice small town, the road is good, the city transportation called taksi-a mini bus in yellow color- are running along the road, the harbour at the edge of the shore line
I am pretty sure that Domine Eduard Osok is a very special person at PAPUA, and of course a very special person too for Sorong citizen, by it was also the name of Sorong Air Port. I have stop at the air port for 30 minutes, at the moment the passenger have to wait at the waiting room, and I took a chance to go out side, it can say that it was a small air port with a very minimum facilities
Traveling by flight now is not so expensive than years ago. When I have a trip by flight, at the check in counter, I ask... more travel advice
