Sailing Komodo for 3 days and 2 nights plus exploring Labuan Bajo for 1 day! This is such a great experiences!!! This was my first time to sail the ocean for quite a long time even though by the end i had a sea sick. Hahahaha..
Well, since there is no direct flight to Labuan Bajo from Surabaya, we have to transfer first in Denpasar Bali. Then it was already afternoon when we arrived in Labuan Bajo (Airport Taxi cost IDR 60.000 to hotel nearby, 1 car for 4 people and luggages), so we had to stay for a night there while we can also strolling around the city. Some part near the harbor of Labuan Bajo seems like walking around in Seminyak Bali, because there were lot of “western” cafes and also many foreigners here already. If you like to try that Kampung Ujung fish market, believe me you have to bargain and ask for cheaper price. Staying in Centro Hostel is not a bad thing at all, even the place is so narrow, they have a clean bathroom and also served some simple breakfast to fill out our hungry tummy in the morning before sailing.
Our sailing as you have seen in these video seems like we didn’t reach some of the travels spots such as Gusung Island, Manta Point, and other interesting parts. However we had already cover some best travel spots and i think we really need to consider the best season to go here. Because some animals are subjects to migration (for manta and also komodo). So basically on June and July is summer but may be is not really the best time to see those exotic creature. Well may be if you are lucky enough you may see it all. No problem!
Sailing for 3 days really need to take care of our health very well, take vitamin everyday is a must! On last 2 days on this trip i had a seasick! Hahaha.. Even the ship is quite steady but still we can’t cover the wind everytime. Anyway, this sailing trip cost around IDR 3,5 million all in (ticket, food and crews). It is quite expensive than the others trips you may found, well it was also considering due to high season.
Then travel around the Labuan Bajo area also quite interesting, visiting some hills and caves would be great. It cost IDR 300.000 for car rent including the driver since you may not driving here. Overall this trip is fun and hopefully this video can be your references for your next trip to Labuan Bajo^^
