FLORES ISLAND

Flores is an island in Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. Flores is located east of Sumbawa and west of the Solor Archipelago (which includes Adonara, Lembata and Solor) and the Alor Archipelago. To the southeast is Timor. To the south, across the Sumba strait, is Sumba and to the north, beyond the Flores Sea, is Sulawesi.


Labuan Bajo is the most crowded by tourists due to the Komodo Island. The Portugese set their first major establishment in Larantuka. The largest town is Maumere. There are many tribes and sub-tribes in Flores, the two most well-known is Manggarai in the West and Ngadha in the Central.


Travelers who have enough by the invasion of tourists in Bali are highly recommended to check out Flores as the next destination.
