Flores island is similar to

In the 16th century, Portuguese colonists named this massive island Flores, which became Indonesia’s ‘Next Big Thing.’ A 670km trans-Flores highway runs the length of the island like a serpentine, skirting knife-edge ridges, brushing by paddy-fringed traditional villages, and opening up dozens of areas few tourists explore. Many more are part of cultures and groups that date back centuries and live in traditional villages seemingly unchanged in millennia. Visiting the villages transports one to a simpler time when more pleasure was taken from being one with the land than with the material world. Find some of the world’s most exotic underwater life, dive in the pristine seas of Komodo, or swim along with huge manta rays, dolphins and dugongs in the island of Flores!
