The starting point of many excursions to Komodo National Park and its surroundings, Labuan Bajo has a long history of trade, connections and exchanges, while maintaining the charm of a town filled with lively culture. Today, Labuan Bajo is a modern port town ideal for those wanting to restore and restart in between cruises at sea. A lazy stroll along the main road will provide everything you need; delicious food and shopping for souvenirs and clothing. Explore the night market and sample the catch of the day, getting a real street food experience. Visit the morning fish market only if you can handle the display of endangered species along the stalls.
In the evenings, test the local bars and dance to the rhythm of the music at one of the many nightclubs or animated bars. Get out of the city and head south to discover beautiful bays and peaceful beaches where you can snorkel or simply admire the sun setting over islands in the distance away from the city’s hustle and bustle. Labuan Bajo is Indonesia’s strongest “Trash Hero” station and one of the most environmentally conscious places in the country.
