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).
As the easternmost province (and provincial capital) of Indonesia, it is somewhat far from most of the country’s major cities and perhaps contributes to the less modern development of the town. However, with the recent government’s intensification on developing the Papua province, this city is now thriving, welcoming businessmen to invest and tourists to explore the exotic province.
Papua has always been considered the most ignored part of Indonesia, in terms of development and tourism; a reputation that stems from the very far distance from other big cities in the nation. Jayapura began as a trading post nestled on a bay right at the center of New Guinea, further developed by the Dutch in the 1900s as a port of entry to explore Eastern New Guinea, and gave the name Hollandia which means “the village of the Dutch”.
The area houses the frontline of the United States Air Force on World War II by General Douglas MacArthur for the 1945 Philippine Conquest as well as to avoid Japan from taking over New Guinea and ultimately Australia to its south. After the war though, as the country of Indonesia was then born, the Dutch refused to relinquish the land until a 1962 referendum supervised by the UN ultimately gave the land to Indonesia, giving the city another name called Sukarnopura for his contribution in freeing the land from the Dutch Indies colony.
The city name reverted back to Jayapura as it was before the colonization in 1968 and government transmigration further populate the area with residents, especially from Java. Jayapura is perhaps the most diverse city you can find in Papua. The traditional Papua races have blended in well with migrants from other parts of Indonesia.
Jayapura City administratively actually includes a number of districts. The most populated areas are at the city proper and the Abepura district that is halfway between the airport and the city. Heavy traffic occasionally occurs as plenty of people would commute between the two areas.
