Labuan Bajo

Labuan Bajo is a fishing town located at the western end of Flores in the Nusa Tenggara region of east Indonesia.
Once a small fishing village, Labuan Bajo (also spelled Labuhanbajo and Labuanbajo) is now a bustling center of tourism. It is the launching point for trips to Komodo Island and Rinca Island, home to the famous Komodo dragons.

Nearby Kanawa and Seraya Islands offer diving and snorkeling. Every evening at Kalong Island, thousands of flying fox bats put on an amazing display. Within a few hours of Labuan Bajo can be found several waterfalls, trekking and many diverse beaches.

The town is quite small and can easily be traversed on foot (in 10–15 minutes). Mirror stone cave is only 4 kilometers away. There are various interesting churches and a mosque. There are now four working ATMs in the town and the road is paved.
