Bima, a bustling small town with a hint of Arabia at its colorful market and sultan's palace, is Sumbawa's major port. Here you will join a full day tour to the local market and to a village up in the nearby lush hills for traditional dance performances.

The market is a bustling place with hundreds of people selling indigenous food wares and colorful houseware. This is your chance to try some local fruit!

You will love the dances and traditional Sumbawan fighting displayed by enthusiastic villagers. The bright songket weavings for sale make excellent souvenirs. Don't be tempted to join the "adu kepala"...
