SELAMAT DATANG DI
FLORES - INDONESIA!
Selamat datang di surga kita
and traveling to Indonesia and Flores
Indonesia is (still) closed for travelers.
Since August 2020 there are a lot of rumours when the country will reopen again but none of them became true. Indonesia has introduced a new visa system but as the country is closed the ones needed for traveling can't be used at the moment.
Don't rely on articles in newspapers in the first place. Always check the website of the Indonesian immigration or get in touch with your embassy or consulate.
So, we have to wait. It's clear that the desired reopening in July this year wil be postponed. Daily numbers of infections hasn't been that high since the outbreak; Indonesia is leading the list in Asia together with India..
Those who can manage to travel with a business visa need to show prove of vaccination plus one must onder negative PCR-tests (one before departure, one upon arrival, one after the quarantaine) and 8 days of quarantaine in designated hotels. (also for Indonesians)

FLORES - INDONESIA!
Welcome to our paradise

FLORES is an island in the tropics south of the equator, belonging to the lesser Sunda Islands (Nusa Tenggara Timur) of Indonesia. The original name of Flores is Tandjoeng Bunga, Malay for flowercape. When the Portuguese came to the island they renamed it into Cabo de Flores and the Dutch shortened it into Flores which means flowers.
FLORES is mostly green, partly dry, mountainous and heavenly beautiful. Flores has everything when dreaming of a tropical island.
FLORES has some gorgeous touristic attractions like the prehistorically komodo dragons, the “Spielberg like” Kelimutu lakes, majestic volcanos like Inerie and Ebulobo and traditions we have almost forgotten in this hasty world. And much more.
Come and see the empty beaches, enjoy wonderful diving, adventurous trekkings, deserted islands, pristine forests, all colour lakes, hidden waterfalls, impressive ceremonies, traditional villages, awesome music, interesting ikat (woven cloth) and above all the welcoming people of Flores. Superb is the only word which fits them all.
You will be surprised by this warm and cool island.
This website is for information and anything you need for your holiday on Flores.
As I am not an agent I do not sell packages.
However, I will be happy to help you to compose a trip on Flores which suits you and I can find you a car with driver for a fair price. I am "working" together with drivers and guides who I know personally. No fee, no commission, everything without any profit. My mission is to help travelers and get the tourism on Flores on a higher level. Tourists happy with fair prices and good information, locals happy to get an income from tourism which is badly needed as Flores is one of the poorest islands of Indonesia.

People of Flores are awaiting you and will be proud to show you their island.
