Labuan Bajo Tour
LABUAN BAJO TOUR
Labuan Bajo Tour. Labuan Bajo is the capital of the district of Manggarai Barat (West Manggarai) and is located at the westernmost tip of the island. Its 2000 residents mostly make their living on the water. This is reflected by the busy bay fully laden with spider-like trimarans, canoes of different sizes, sailing vessels, and motorized boats.
Labuan Bajo is an entry point to explore the Komodo National Park and visit the giant dragons on Komodo Island, Rinca Island and Padar Island. In recent years, Labuan Bajo gradually turned into a busy spot because of the divers and the increased number of komodo visitors. Today, this town offers a wide range of tourist facilities such as 4 stars hotels, European and American restaurants, spa, diving club, bar, super luxiorous ships.
Labuan Bajo’s most significant features are probably its magnificent ramshackle harbor dotted with small islands and its hard-to-beat colorful sunsets. Labuan Bajo tour is almost a must-do for visitors to hike to one of the surrounding hills or mountains to enjoy a perfect panoramic view over the harbor and the innumerable coastal islets with their strips of white-sand beaches.
