Bungin Island Sumbawa, the most populous island in the world

Vice Governor of West Nusa Tenggara (NTB) Badrul Munir will bring 12 heads of agencies to come to the world's most populous island, Sumbawa regency Bungin on Friday morning, July 6, 2012. Because, Badrul want to promote small island populated the Bajo Sulawesi origin.

Tri NTB provincial government spokesman Budi Prayitno describes as a venue determination Bungin Archipelago Day and is delivered as a tourist attraction, Thursday afternoon, July 5, 2012. This is the uniqueness of the island. The island is densely populated and growing extent. '' Because of reclamation for the addition of new family-friendly,'' he said.

Where the Bungin? The island is located in front of the entrance to the bay Alas Alas districts, 70 kilometers west of the town of Sumbawa Besar, capital of Sumbawa regency. Bungin Island is north district Alas. To come Bungin, in the old port of Labuan Alas available motor boat there called Jonson. She uses the 8 PK. The crossing is 3 miles into Bungin takes 10 minutes.

Although the island is relatively small, but there are available two pieces of the pier, on the south and west. Alas crossings Bungin quite crowded. There were eight boats that crossed Bungin Jonson-Alas since morning till dusk.

There seemed a sand beach that stretches around the island. Only the houses looked as if it was standing right on the water. Indeed, from near the base at least two feet jutted from the sea. The density of these islands can be felt so down the alley way concrete rebates of about 1.25 meters wide.

Similarly, the distance between the houses people who shaped the distinctive stilt houses Bajo Sulawesi as on Sumbawa Island. Almost no vast empty land except page two SD, in front of the mosque, and the front of the village. Except for complex primary and teacher housing.

The form is slightly rounded oval island. In this map, the island is seen as black dots. Based on data from Tempo, in 1994 the extent of 16 hectares. The island has the status of village government. Bungin divided into three hamlets that entirely covers 15 RT. According to Census 2010, the island was inhabited by 3025 people. Bungin broad reach 1.5 square kilometers.

This is because the density of the growing island. Each resident can build the house by way of providing their own land. That is, for those who want to own a home, can do it by expanding the island using a pile of rocks that are already dead.

According to a book published Know Sumbawa Government Relations Sumbawa, Bajo growing population as migrants from South Sulawesi, the island has insufficient land. As a man of the sea, houses built on stilts with a rock I build first on the seafront. Eventually we get a new house, then expanding island islands.

Because of the uniqueness of the island pace with the spread of houses, Bungin become one of the attractions for the Sumbawa district. Every Sunday the island is visited by foreign tourists.

At that time, the island is still able to be expanded to the north and east. Because, on the west and south is no longer possible because of the depth of the ocean is more than 2 meters. On average, each year, added 10 new houses on the island Bungin. Usually chosen to set up home in both the fasting month of Sha'ban.

Increasing a new home, the increased breadth of the island's land about one are or the size of their house 9 times 12 yards. All residents should not build a house without any restriction. The breadth is not rationed. But based on the capabilities of each. Because they have to collect the dead rock of the sea. How many rocks to be collected in an area of ​​land of 100 square meters and the height of the stack about 2 feet.

Typically, built a new house on the seafront was done by the new family before they move in with his parents. Locals, Amirudin, said the new family after marriage is not immediately built the house and broke away. But they have to prepare it first. They must abide by the law first home first. '' His name parents also still love the child. Maybe after a descent, if you want to be independent and her husband obviously had to make a home,'' said Amirudin.

To build the house, local residents first notify the neighbors. Permission granted if deemed eligible, for example, has a family. However, it should also unknown whether the desired location has not become the property of others.

Once the house is set to be established by a person, the area was marked with poles and piles of stones. Simply by marking the location, the people can no longer take it. Employment set up houses on stilts made of wood Poster boards work together is done. The tradition of mutual aid is characterized laughter-laughter (brass gongs) as a sign of the'' work''.

About the time limit to build the house, no provisions. All depends on the capabilities of each. It could be a lot stronger mengkavling origin.

Intermittent Martawin two houses of residence, are still empty. Though the sea was there was a house standing. If you have this, can rush to lift the rock of the boat.

Rock heap as high as 2 meters of land his collected Kaung island. Some homes are built to 7 years. One of them was built Martawin which is now inside. Therefore, to the seafront behind his house is now the home there are 3 layers. About 14 years there have been 3.

For home base, they take sea corals died. It is associated with legal education ever undertaken by the State Attorney Sumbawa Besar on Bylaw No. 5 of 1982 relating to the destruction of nature conservation penalty for making a rock.

Just a pity, the houses there to say no one has a shower and toilet. Like most people there, they go bathe and defecate in the sea. At home, they just flush again just rinsing the sea water in the body using fresh water stored in the bucket.

To get fresh water is, in fact since 1990 the island Bungin obtain clean water supply through a subsea pipeline from the river on the mainland Marente-Alas Sumbawa 7 kilometers away from the island Bungin. Construction of water lines at a cost of approximately USD 100 million. At the same time the use of electricity as well inaugurated also from Sumbawa mainland, by Afif Saleh, who was chairman of the National Development Planning Agency.

Previously, the residents get clean water at an old well that is Nange across Sumbawa mainland. Prior to any boat called Jonson, those requiring fresh water rowing boat for 20 minutes. Nange old wells is believed by residents as well Bungin sacred.

However, the villages there is relatively clean. There's no trash heap scattered. Meeting environmental conditions and lack of enough clean water for a healthy life like it did not make settlers willing to move from the island.

History Bungin populated Bajo, calculated according to the story since the arrival Palema Mayo before the eruption of Mount Tambora in Sumbawa mainland, in 1812. Palema Mayu is one of 6 children Selayar king. Why Palema Mayo to Bungin, no one knows. At that time, the island's white sandy Bungin empty. Only the mangrove trees only.
