Used to be a small fishing town, Labuan Bajo – the capital of West Manggarai - has turned into the center of tourism on the island of Flores. Labuan Bajo is located in the western tip of Flores Island. It’s the jumping-off point for exploration to Komodo National park and Flores Island.
Visitors who would like to experience the real Komodo adventure, mostly prefer to sleep on boat. While those who do not comfortable spend the night in the sea, Labuan Bajo offers plenty of choice of accommodation which varied from low budget room to resort-style accommodation.
Hospital with international style is also available in the town. Pharmacy, minimarket, ATMs and dive centers can be found in the downtown of Labuan Bajo.
