Komodo Island Tour is now on the hype. The land of the dragons, this UNESCO Heritage Site begin to gain popularity among travelers and rumored as the next Bali. How couldn’t it be? The journey that you need to take to reach this island is absolutely exhilarating. As the island doesn’t have any airports, you are “forced” to embark on a sea excursion. But here’s the first beauty lies.
The Komodo Island we are going to land is a small island at the tip of East Nusa Tenggara province. It’s part of Komodo National Park, along with Padar and Rinca Island. Your plane will land on Komodo National Airport, Labuan Bajo, province of East Nusa Tenggara. See how the city lovingly adopt the name of Komodo? That’s because they are super proud to have this prehistoric animal breeding and creeping on their land. The Komodo is actually Indonesia’s national animal!
Outside the airport, you can even find a giant statue of Komodo standing proudly. Here you can take a very close up selfie with the dragons—even to get as close as possible—without having to risk to be chased or have your limbs chopped. From Labuan Bajo, you will need to meet a tour provider that will take you to the Komodo Island and around. There’s a lot of Komodo Island Tour agents in Labuan Bajo, and they are very welcoming to tourist without being pushy. You can walk along the port town, visit a tour office that draws your interest, and have a talk. If you don’t feel clicked with their programs, it’s definitely okay. You can say thank you and just walk by.
To save your time, however, I strongly recommend Hello Flores as a tour agent to get to Komodo Island. They have a very neat website you could look at and complete information of all about the tour. They have super cool boats of all type for the excursion—all seems to be a floating hotel with modern and sleek designs. You know, the Komodo island tour will involve a series of hopping islands, and with most of your time spend on the sea, I think finding a comfortable boat is very important for a comfortable journey. You don’t want to waste most of your holiday with a sick stomach, don’t you? The best thing is, you are free to arrange your itinerary according to your time and budget. No more sticking to a crappy schedule only to find that you don’t really like the destination!
