Usually, when talking about the travel destination, one of the question in our mind is wondering about how much money we should spend from the first time we are leaving our home up to arriving to the destination. So with the trip to Komodo Island as well. But, I won’t mention about that at this time. Instead, I am going to delivery you about how long of your times to be spent to get the most of the trip. I think it is also important since it will also answering how much money you have to be brought. The more days and nights you will be spend, the more of your bank will be broken. As simple as that, right?
Now, when talking about the times, there are some of the trip to Komodo Island packages you need to know. Most of what I have heard and found online are the One day trip, 3 Days and 2 Nights or usually being abbreviated as 3N2D, 4D3N and 5 Days and 4 Nights. There are also other package option depending on your own itineraries or the tour operator itineraries.
Now let us assuming that you will get a flight to Labuan Bajo (Komodo) Airport from Denpasar, Bali. The flight can takes mostly up to 1 hour until you will be landed at the Province of East Nusa Tenggara. There is also a flight that will take up to a half of the day, so you will be arrive at night (about 6-7 PM for Indonesian Central Time).
But, let us say you will be get to the Flores Islands for only 1 hour and you will be arrive at 10 or 11 AM (morning flights are only 2 when I writing this article). And the worst is, a trip to Komodo Island will be better to be sailed earlier in the morning. Not to mention about how many times should be spend from the airport to the hotel and harbour as well. I hope you are not hungry at that time.
So, your 1 day actually will mostly be spend on Labuan Bajo city alone. I think, there’s nothing you can do about trip to Komodo Island at that time, right? So, if you could only hope for the 1 Day trip in the same day, then big chance that you have failed.
So now, according to the Komodo Island tour packages from the time point of view as I have mentioned above, then for the minimum package, you should get at least the 3 Days and 2 Nights Package. For that package, you will at least have a 5 days of holiday to get more safer times for you to flight back. And that will be achieved if only you are living in Indonesia. Even if you are flying back to another country, then it would be Malaysia or maybe Singapore because the distance is not so far.
How long to sail from the Labuan Bajo to Komodo Island? It will takes your time for about 2-3 hours. So, according to the last trip to Komodo Island package, you will not only exploring the Komodo Island, but also Rinca, Padar Island and maybe others. Hope the information is giving you some insights. Thanks for reading.
