Labuan Bajo is a town in Flores surrounded by hills that rise steeply from the shore. The setting is picturesque with breathtaking views at sunset. You can get here by a small plane since there is an airport. These past few years, the town has seen many visitors because of the rising interest, especially since this is where people start their komodo island tour. Before you visit, here is what you should know.
1. Don’t bring too much luggage
You will be arriving in a small plane and most likely you will be travelling on a boat, so bringing suitcases, especially big ones, is not ideal. Backpacks are better because you can easily carry them on your backs.
2. Pack necessities
Since your luggage space is limited, only bring what you need. Plan out your clothes carefully.
3. Bring beachwear
Labuan Bajo is an island and you might visit other islands while there. Take loose t-shirts, some shorts, swimming costumes, underwear, a light jacket, a pair of comfortable pants for the plane ride, a hat if you wish, and a sarong. Don’t forget to bring a cool pair of sunglasses!
4. Appropriate footwear
You will need sport shoes if you are going hiking to the mountains and hills. Flip flops are great for daily wear.
5. Sunscreen and other medicine
Make sure you bring sunscreen because the sun heat is strong. You will get sunburnt if you don’t. You may also bring insect repellant and something to help you with seasickness.
