Why Flores

 

In the far west, Labuan Bajo is a booming tourist town that combines tropical beauty with nearby attractions such as Komodo National Park, myriad superb dive spots and stunning waterways speckled with little islands.

 

Beyond, the generally lush interior is attracting an ever-greater number of travelers chasing smoking volcanoes, emerald rice fields, prehistoric riddles, exotic cultures and hidden beaches. You’ll even see plenty of steeples, as away from the port towns most people are nominally Catholic. Many more are part of cultures and groups that date back centuries and live in traditional villages seemingly unchanged in millennia.
