Hi! My name is Maite and I'm from Amsterdam, the Netherlands. My boyfriend and I are travelling through Indonesia this summer. We plan to cross Flores from east to west, and we'd really like to visit Wae Rebo as well. So I was wondering if one of you has any experiences going from Ruteng to Wae Rebo (Denge)? And after that, further to Labuan Bajo? Is it nesscary to hire a driver or is it possible to get there by public transport? Hope to hear from you! Maite
I am in desperate need for accurate advice please. I have searched on the Internet and most tourgroup sites say the journey from Labuan Bajo to Denge / Dintor by car is about 4hrs. But the guide I am talking to says its 7-8hrs! Can someone be so kind to confirm which is right?
Unfortunately my friend and i are on a budget and unable to afford the expensive tourgroup prices so we would like to book our own car with driver from Labuan Bajo. Has anyone booked before?? How much does it cost typically from Labuan Bajo to Denge?
The other option is to go from Nangalili by ferry to Mules. Has anyone taken this route before??
Also any idea whom I can contact to help book the homestay in Denge and Wae Rebo?
We leave next week so any tips on this would be most helpful.
There's so many thing to see & experience in Flores that I'm spoilt for choice. Alas, I only have 5 days. :( My wish-list: to Pulau Rinca to see the Komodos, Ruteng to stay at the Wae Rebo village and see Liang Bua cave then Cunca Wulang Canyon, Mt. Kelimutu, and then squeeze in some snorkeling. Would that all be possible in 5 days or should I cut something off? It's sooo hard to choose so please kindly advise what would work best for the 5days! Thank you!

I will be visiting Bali in a couple of weeks. I am planning on visiting Komodo and Rinca islands. I am debating on whether to book a tour online now, book a tour while I'm on Bali, or just fly to Labuan Bajo and hire a tour from there? My fear is if I book a tour online that I might get scammed. Also, I figure that it might be cheaper to book from either Bali or Labuan Bajo.
I'm leaning towards booking a Komodo tour from a company while on Bali.
Does anyone know if it is possible to find out the ferry time table from Kupang to Rote?

I'm planning to go from Bali or Lombok to Komodo but don't know what would be the bes way to get there
1. would it be cheaper to fly from Denpasar or Mataram to Labuanbajo?
2. is there any ferry connection between Bali and Komodo/Flores? Would that be better option?
I have heard that taking a tour from Bali to Komodo is very expensive.
As I'm on quite low budget, I'd be happy if someone can recommend a good way to get to Komodo.
In total I'll be in the area for 7 days (flying in and out from Bali), so on quite packed schedule. Would it be enoug time to see Bali, Lombok and Komodo?
Thank you in advance!

Hi, I am planning to visit Flores and Komodo Island at this end of December. Is it the right season to visit these two islands? Can anyone provide me the following information:
1) where to get the bus cum ferry ticket from Mataram,Lombok to Labuhan Bajo, Flores? How much is the cost and how long long it takes to arrive at Labuhan Bajo? And whether can I get the same transport package from Labuhan Bajo back to Mataram?
2) Can I travel to Moni from Labuhan Bajo by public transport in 1 or 2 day? How much? Any better suggestion?
I am looking for some more information about Komodo.
We want to make snorkeling with a 5 year old boy, some people say there are strong currents in Komodo what your meaning ?
Moreover is it possible to get there by boat not only tourists boats ? From where ?
Thanks a lot.
Hi, I am planning to visit Komodo and Rinca Islands in August via Bali and I appreciate if you could let me know the following information:-
a) I am thinking of flying from Denpasar to Labuanbajo and then get a tour package to visit these islands. Is it easy to find a tour package in Labuanbajo which offered visit to both Komodo and Rinca Islands?
b) I am also thinking of booking a tour package from internet instead of looking for one in Labuanbajo. However, the price quoted in the internet seems to be at the high side. Any idea how much it costs if I get a tour package in Labuanbajo?
c) How many days are enough to visit Komodo and Rinca?
d) Any nice and clean budget hotels to stay in Labuanbajo? Please recommend.
Please let me know. Thank you.
can somebody tell me how to get to Maumere, Flores, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia.
I want to go there but did not have any information on the transportation. Would you mind telling me what kind of transportation that I need to take to get there and what are the options. My starting point will be Jakarta, Indonesia. Do you think I should fly to Denpasar, Bali or other city such as Kupang or Mataram? and then cross the island with small boat? Or probably anyone has better suggestion.
Thank you very much for your help, I really appreciate it.
Does anyone know the easiest way to get to Flores from Jakarta? Are there any direct flights from Jakarta to Labuanbajo? Or are there any connecting flights via Denpasar? We're planning to travel around April 6/7/8th and would like to know the quickest way to get there. Hopefully then we'll be taking a very slow overland/sea return, we just didn't want to do this in both directions! Any tips would help....
I am planning a trip to Flores to see the komodo dragons. At the same time I would like to see the Kelimutu. As I won’t have too much time, I would like to know if the following itenary is feasible.
I am thinking fly from Denpasar to LabuanBajo on the Saturday and catch the flight from Ende to Denpasar the following Friday. Then I would have about 5 days to visit Rica and see the Kelimutu. Do you think this is feasible even if it would be a bit rush?
Also to go from LabuanBajo to Ende, beside the public bus, is there any possibility to rend a private car with driver. As several of us will be traveling together, it could be more comfortable and faster.
There will be culture festival from each region in east nusa tenggara. Such as Pasola and traditional dancing. It will be held on 19-24 september 2005, Waikabubak - West Sumba.
So... anyone intersting to watch it? :-)

I am planning a trip over Indonesia from Bali to Flores (I have to Bali in 2003 already). I have one week to go Jakarta to Flores and then back to Lombok or Bali. I suppose 2 possible routes - please recommend one of them:
1. Flight Jakarta - Ende. Keli Mutu lakes, bus/plane to Labuan Bajo, boat trip over Rinca/Komodo to Lombok.
2. Flight Jakarta - Labuan Bajo, boat trip over Rinca/Komodo to Lombok.
I prefer route 1 but I worry about the time. I have only 1 week (Sunday to Sunday).
Please tell me anything you know about travelling in this area.
Does anyone know of the recent situation with the border with East Timor? I'm thinking of going from Kupang to Dili by bus in about a month's time. Has anyone done this? Is the direct bus preferred over the transfer at the border? Thanks.
