Guide to Komodo Island & Labuan Bajo in Indonesia
When it comes to tropical islands in Southeast Asia, most of us flock to destinations like Bali and Thailand. But here’s a lesser-known destination, Komodo Island. It’s part of a bigger area, Komodo National Park, located between the islands of Sumbawa and Flores in Indonesia.
The national park is made up of 29 volcanic islands, with the most popular ones being Rinca, Padar, and Komodo. It’s been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1986 to protect its most popular inhabitants, the Komodo dragons.
Sure, you can appreciate them from afar at the Singapore Zoo, but we dare you to make a trip to Komodo Island for an IRL encounter with these free-roaming creatures.
