It was really quite to visit Bena in low season. We did it in early of January 2019. There was a sunny day. the village was very clean and fresh. some local women weaved textiles and small children were playing at the home page. we...More
This is a must go in Bajawa. Old traditional houses, megaliths, beautiful organic handwoven Tenun, friendly people, try Bajawa coffee there, mountain as background, St Mary’s statue at the end of the path and amazing view at the back. Just love this place. Old blind...More
This village was really touristy. Especially compared to Wae Rebo. Of course Wae Rebo and Bena are really different and I would still recommend to go to both of them. You just have to experience it yourself, but in Bena I got the idea that...More
It took us about half an hour to walk from Manulalu. We were the only 2 visitors at around 330pm. An interesting traditional village, we didn't have any guide assigned to us. We were fortunate that the driver we hired next day, Stephen +6282244499249 (local...More
We booked a day with a guide (office in main street but not always open) and it was perfect: he arranged the timing to avoid the "crowd" in the villages (Tololela and Bena), he showed us plenty of plants and trees while we walked in...More
My wife saw probably every available village in the Bajawa area plus the Wawo Muda volcano accompanied by guide Lorenzo (853-33505160), who literally ran her into the ground in a good way on a morning til night motorbike tour. Bena is maybe a tad touristic...More
We booked a jungle tour for four hours and made the walk down from the lakes to the city center. During this walk you can visit several traditional villages. Some are very touristic, but a few are no so touristic. Its more hard to get...More
As one of the main attractions in this area, we (two friends and myself) went to the village with some prior information taken out of a travelguide and the internet.
Renting a scooter from Bajawa is easy (~100 000/day) and you'll get there in about...More
For sure the best time in the year is off peak so before june or after mid september. In peak season go as early as possible because tour buses will be there around 10/11. There are also some villages in the area that are... More

Bena and wae rebo are 2 traditional villages belong to different region. Bena is in Bajawa region and easy access from the main street. while Wae Rebo is more authentic in it's architecture and life style, one need to be physically fit to visit Wae Rebo as it will require around 2 hours hike through the forest pathway from the nearest village. I personally like Wae Rebo more than Bena.
