Welcome to Flores
Flores, a snake-shaped island in the seas of Eastern Indonesia, is without doubt most famous for two world-wide renowned attractions. Firstly, for Komodo National Park, home of the unique Komodo dragon, a monitor lizard of impressive size and appearance, which attracts thousands of people from all over the globe each year. Secondly, Wae Rebo, is an old Manggaraian village, situated in pleasant, islolated mountain scenery. The village offers visitors a unique opportunity to see authentic Manggarai housing and to experience the everyday life of the local community. In the village of Wae Rebo, visitors can see mbaru niang-traditional, circlular cone-shaped houses with very unique architecture. Thirdly, for Kelimutu, an inactive volcano in central Flores, which bedazzles its visitors with three bright-colored myth-spun crater lakes.
However, Flores is so much more than Komodo National Park, Wae Rebo traditioanal housing and Kelimutu. Nature lovers will find it all in Flores: deserted islands with white sandy beaches, just right to escape from civilizations’ hassles; beautiful rice-field sceneries in soft-shaped hilly landscapes inviting for laid-back strolling; birdsong-concerts in lush coffe gardens and wild forest; hot springs, clear lakes and cool river ponds to jump in after a volcano trek. Innumerous places of an amazing natural beauty are still waiting to be explored.
Still, it is not only natural wonders that make Flores an unforgettable travel experience. The magic of Flores comes from its people who receive guests with open arms and heart-warming friendliness, eager to share their fascinating past and present way of life. The cultural ichness is impressive and it is definetely worth getting off the main road to discover Flores’ full spectrum of attractions.
