This city is a blend of unreached peoples, languages, and beliefs impacting all parts of life.
In a single neighborhood you will often hear bells from the Hindu temple, smell incense from Buddhist and Taoist worshippers, and hear the Muslim call to prayer.
This location is a beautiful, equatorial tropical island.
The area is in the suburbs, with both a large outdoor market and a large superstore within 10 minutes. You will be a 45-minute flight from the capital. There’s an international airport on the island, along with several malls and other modern conveniences.
Yet, below the surface are many complexities; the world’s three largest non-Christian religions all live on top of each other and coexist in everyday life.
There is a wide array of social classes as well, ranging from:
-migrant workers from nearby countries
-local Muslims who speak little to no English
-Hindus who speak mostly the local language and also English
-very wealthy East Asian Tibetans and Buddhist business people/property owners.
There is a lot of seafood here, the climate is hot and humid year-round (33 degrees Celsius every day), and rain is often on the forecast.
Our island is considered a top-ten foodie destination in the world!
