The Komodo National Park is a total embodiment of rare heaven on earth. Not because of palm trees, nor of the resorts. In fact, these remote set of islands are very scarce on those typical “tropical paradise”. Komodo is everything rugged, raw, and wild. And that’s what makes it so special. Blue waters, turquoise lagoon, soft beaches, and undulating savannah hills form an authentic, otherworldly destination for us to indulge with. Here’s a way to get the best and the fullest of what Komodo can offer: hopping on Komodo cruise ship and set to sail for several days.
