Flores & Komodo

The island of Flores is located on the east part of the Lesser Sunda Islands. The tourism over there starts growing but it's still remarkably preserved. Meeting the people in some remote community villages is a must do, as the inhabitants always welcome visitors with wide open arms. It also offers some incredible panoramas such as the spider web ricefields in central flores and the volcano crater lakes of Kelimutu. But Flores is before all mainly famous for the Komodo National Park just a few kilometers away from Labuan Bajo harbour. The marine life is incredible, and thats the only place in the world where you can meet the famous Komodo dragons.
