3. Komodo Islands
Komodo National Park (Komodo Island, Rinca Island, and islands around) is the home for the gorgeous Komodo dragon. However, the islands around have wonderful marine biodiversity so that tourists not only go here for the ancient dragon, but also enjoying the beautiful underwater view of islands around Komodo Island. One of my friend ever said that Komodo Island was one of the best diving spot in Indonesia.
Location: Komodo Island, Nusa Tenggara Timur Province, Indonesia
Main Island: Nusa Tenggara Timur
Pros: one of the best diving spot in the world, watching Komodo dragons in their own home, pink beach, less expensive, many tours agencies in Bali/Lombok/Jakarta that serve a service to go here.
Cons: less developed, far from Jakarta (Indonesian Capital City), relatively not that good infrastructure
How to Get There: There are tours from Gili Trawangan (Lombok) or Bali. There are also direct flights from Jakarta and Bali to Labuan Bajo (the closest city).
