We have a story...
“Don’t we all dream of the faraway?”
Labuan Bajo trip is what a dream made of. Hop the Komodo Liveaboard and spend the day sunbathing on the deck. A little while after boarding and leaving from Labuan Bajo, you will be surrounded with clear blue ocean that stretched to the horizon. The boat is sailing in steady speed, and it feels like you have all the time in the world.
Watch when the rugged green hills or the brown crisp savannah rises from the ocean, signaling your next visit. The archipelago is just what you want from island escape; dense jungle thickly covered the slope and drops to the blue ocean, only to get separated by a line of palm trees, soft sands beaches, and rocky reefs.
In the West Flores, three big islands and several surrounding small islands make up the Komodo National Park, each have something unique to behold. A journey to Flores will never be complete without a sightseeing tour to these islands, and the only way to get there is by boat.
