Flores was a hidden gem for sure. Not many people I talk to know where Flores is or what can be found there, however, read any blog or travel information for the place and you will see a huge list of places to visit and the agreement that it is well worth the trip. The island is lush and mountainous and definitely more rural than other Indonesian islands I had the opportunity to visit. Don't let the slightly more difficult nature of travelling there deter you; its those places that are harder to get to that are most worth getting to. I stayed to the East of the island because of time constraints alone but from what I here the interior and Western half are equally as great.
Komodo Island is the reason most people make the trip to Flores and Labuan Bajo, however, its not the only island worth visiting in the area. For more information on other places to visit around Labuan Bajo and the rest of Flores, visit Flores' tourism website.
