How to get to Flores from Bali / Lombok?

Q – I plan to get to Flores and also to the Komodo National Park after my visit in Bali / Lombok. What is my best option to get there? Thanks!

One of the fastest way and easy is to take a flight from Denpasar Airport, Bali or Bandara International Airport, Lombok to Labuanbajo (Komodo Airport) in Flores.

Or you can take the Pelni boats from Bali or Lombok to Flores if you like this sort of thing, it isn’t more budget in comparison and take longer time and safety is a question. You may find a lot of tour operating for this or you may catch the boat independently. The boats sail from Bima, Lombok and Benoa, Bali to Labuanbajo

And if you are into adventure riding and photography, you may choose to take the long tedious (note: very long and tedious) way overland, a bus from Bali to Lombok to Bima and then Sape and then end with a Ferry to Labuanbajo.

    very interesting!
    do you know if there are any boats from Flores to Bali or to Lombok on which you can take a motorbike?
    no ferries, just 1 boat.
