Flores Komodo Tour Favorites: A Must Visit!
1. The Charming Labuan Bajo
Labuan Bajo is rising into fame as the Komodo National Park got its New 7 Wonder of Nature status. It’s the town where you will land in Flores and depart to the National Park. The once a humble fishing village is now growing as a shabby chic port town. Some western-owned restaurant and uniquely designed hostels begin to pop up along the way, changing the face of the town. It’s a nice place to stay, but among those all, Labuan Bajo still maintain its rustic charm. Stay for a night or two in Labuan Bajo and enjoy the city before taking your Flores Komodo tour.
