Flores Is World’s Top 10 Best Travel Destination
Where else can you meet legendary living dragons while frolicking on one of the world’s Pink Beaches, visit monumental crater lakes in three different colours or get to know ancient tribes with their ancient ways? All this and more await you at Flores, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia.
In 2015, Lonely Planet named Flores as one of the world’s best travel destinations. Flores was rated eight, along with Gallipoli, Turkey; Rocky Mountains, USA; Toledo, Belize; Tasmania, Australia; Arctic, Norway; Khumbu, Nepal; Copper Canyon, Mexico; Atacama Desert, Chile; and Macau, China.
In addition to the Komodo Dragons, Flores promises extraordinary adventures across land and over the sea onboard a traditional sailboat called the phinisi.
While you’re there, you could partake in unbeatable diving, snorkelling, cycling and sailing or even trek to the highest mountains, sunbathe on the most beautiful islands and beaches, immerse in age-old cultures and meet the most breathtaking wildlife.
Lonely Planet recommends Labuan Bajo in western Flores as a must-visit. This is the gateway to the Komodo National Park and is also a great platform for those who want to enjoy the beach, as well as a variety of delicious local and international cuisines.
Travelers are also recommended to visit Bajawa to meet ancient tribes living in traditional villages complete with traditional culture. Don’t forget Mount Kelimutu and its tri-coloured crater lakes! Travel on to Ende, Sikka and Larantuka and for the brave and adventurous, onwards to Alor, Lembata and Adonara.
