From Labuanbajo in Flores you can go on a day-tour with a boat to Rinca Island, one of the three islands that make up the Komodo National Park, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There are an estimated 3,000 to 5,000 Komodo dragons living on Komodo, Padar, and Rinca islands. Komodo dragons, as it turns out, are not fun and cute and cuddly like Orang-Utans and their heads look rather like those of velociraptors. They are also the laziest predators on earth, so the dozen or so that we saw were mainly taking their afternoon siestas. On the way back to Labuanbajo we stopped at a tiny uninhabited island where we snorkelled while our guide collected live shells to cook for dinner later that night. The snorkelling here was really excellent.
