Best way to see the komodo dragons....Hi there,
Soon me and my girlfriend will be heading to Indonesia as part of our round the world trip. We have 2 weeks in/around Bali but would like to come to Flores to see the komodo dragons. I'm torn between a couple of options.....
Fly bali to Labuan arrive 9am ish, cost is 1,175,000 not sure what I could do for the day, suggestions? I'm too late to go diving, could I still do day trips? Then day after diving/komodo trip, 2 dives and afternoon trek, been quoted about 1,250,000 for the day. I would then head back the day after to Lombok via public transport, early Gerry to sape and then a bus....
Another option would be the same flight, do some stuff in a day then do the perama trip back to Lombok via Perama for 1,300,000 and miss the diving...so basically fly in to get the ferry back....
I suppose I could also do the 4/5 trip from Lombok return but I don't really want to spend all that time on a boat, seeing them once at Rinca is fine for me.
Are there any more options out there that I've not thought of, and any advice anyone can give.
Thanks I'm advance for your feedback,

3hey there - i'm thinking about doing almost the same trip... bali(4d)-lombok(7d)-flores(2d)-back home... i read about a 3-day-boat-tour from lombok to flores including visits on Komodo&Rinca for about 1,5million - so it's not 4/5 days just in a boat.. it's 1,5 excluding the komodos - could be a nice trip - after that i'll probably do some diving and then fly out of labuan bajo.
