It only take one hour and fifteen minutes flight from the famous Bali to Labuan Bajo, the land of lost world and Komodo Dragons. A small fishing town in Flores, Easten part of Indonesia, Labuan Bajo is well known for its Komodo National Park—a national park comprised of a string of islands and vast water bodies where more than 20 dive sites lie beneath the waves. This is the place where you would meet some of Indonesian finest phinisi—locally known as Komodo Liveaboard or Labuan Bajo cruises—and have one of the most thrilling sailing holiday. Even when you are alone. Here, I would share some insight on how to make your first solo trip with Komodo cruises Labuan Bajo rock!
A Different Solo Trip
A lot of people are quite intimidated by travelling solo in the Komodo National Park due to the nature of the sailing trip. See, you have to embark on Komodo cruises labuan bajo to be able to explore Komodo, and by no means you can arrange the travel trip according to your pure whim. Well, unless you want to charter the whole cruise (not recommended if you are travelling solo and on budget!). You would essentially still be on solo trip without navigating your day by day as you usually do. Come prepared by this mentality so you know what to expect once onboard
You won’t be as alone as you might think. On Komodo cruises Labuan Bajo, you would be enjoying the company of other travelers that embark on the sailing trip. Some of them might be solo travelers like you, too! You’ll make tons of friends along the way to explore the Komodo with. The cruise’s cabins setting support this friendly atmosphere, too, as you would likely be paired up with another solo traveler to share the bunkbeds on your cabin.
Go only with the essential. You won’t have any partner to help you carry those luggage. Don’t burden yourself by overpacking. Beside, you won’t have much spaces onboard to store your luggage anyway.
Make Copies of Your Passport
Always go with safety first—especially on sailing trip. We don’t know what would happened if the sea decide to throw storms. No one would know if you get robbed (God Forbid) and if you should lost your passport. Always take extra security measure; scan your passport and send it to your email and put all your important documents in tightly sealed plastic bag before the embarkation.
Leave Trip Planning to Komodo Cruises Labuan Bajo Operators
Don’t plan too much. Well, do plan for your first arrival days in Labuan Bajo, sign up for the sailing trip, and leave room for unexpected adventures. Though you can’t navigate the trip as you exactly wish, I’m sure you’ll still be left dumbfounded by the fascinating Komodo Dragons and Labuan Bajo’s uncanny landscape!
