The island of Flores is often overlooked by visitors to Indonesia. While Indonesia’s best known destination is undoubtedly the paradisiacal island of Bali, Java, Sumatra, Lombok and the Gili islands are on the radar of most visitors to Indonesia.
“Our aim is to the show the hidden, quiet or often over-looked authentic experiences of this amazing country,” says Herman Hoven, Khiri Travel Country Manager for Indonesia.
Our Lombok Branch Manager recently met boatman Ruding in Flores. Read her blog about helping this humble fisherman who runs a lot of our boat tours to Komodo National Park.
The only way to visit Komodo Island and the UNESCO World Heritage Komodo National Park is by boat. Half the fun is the adventure to get there, but then travelers come face to face with lizards that look more like dinosaurs.
