Most visitors come to Flores solely to see the Komodo dragons, stay in Labuan Bajo, and leave, but if you truly want to grasp why Flores is one of Indonesia’s most interesting places, you must journey inland from west to east. Choose the Flores island tour by boat as a place to stay to feel a new atmosphere on the Flores boat trip.
Why do Flores island tour
Flores is a spectacular island with incredible fauna, diversified natural beauty, and incredibly friendly people. The island is easily accessible from Denpasar, making it a perfect place to visit after Bali. The island is famous for being close to the famed Komodo Islands and for being the only site on the planet where you can view a real living dragon. Flores, on the other hand, is much more than the Komodo Islands.
For starters, the island is nearly entirely populated by Roman Catholic Christians, although the majority of Indonesia is Muslim, which brings with it a variety of traditions, ways of life, and sights to see. There’s also Kelimutu’s tri-colored volcanic lakes, Bajawa’s traditional villages, and Ruteng’s spider web rice field to keep you amused for weeks.
When to go to Flores
The best season to visit Flores is from May to September when the weather is dry and stable. Very important if you want to enjoy your trip to Flores, especially the cruise of the Komodo Islands and the Flores highlands region. The cities at sea level (Labuan Bajo, Ende, and Maumere) are quite hot, but as you reach the mountains, the temperature drops to a pleasant 20°C during the day and 16°C at night, so dress appropriately.
What to pack during Flores Komodo tour?
I’m a light traveler, as you know, and packing light for a trip like this is an art in and of itself. Here are some packing suggestions for your Flores Komodo tour, Indonesia:
Walking/Hiking Shoes: We strongly advise you to bring a nice pair of comfortable walking/hiking shoes on this excursion.
Breathable Shirts: When the sun is blazing and the sky is clear, it can get very hot outside, so pack a couple of breathable shirts with you.
Shorts/Jeans: Because you will be walking a lot more when traveling, I strongly advise you to bring a few pairs of breathable shorts. Leggings are great for both hot and cold locations, so bring some along with you.
Outer Shell Jacket: An outer shell jacket is perfect when it’s raining or a little windy outside.
Microfiber Towel: A Microfiber towel is ideal for backpackers because it is light, quick to dry, and can be compressed to save space.
Swim trunks: If you’re visiting Flores, Indonesia in the summer, bring your swim trunks just in case there’s a body of water you can jump into.
Camera: You should bring a good camera with you on your vacation so that you can document all of the wonderful events you have.
Power Bank: A 20,000+ mAh Power Bank can keep your electronics charged while you’re on the run.
Universal Adaptor: You simply need one universal adaptor to plug in your devices in whatever country you visit.
