Labuan Bajo has got it all – the beaches, the views, and the unique wildlife. Though slightly further afield than Bali, this Indonesian island gem is a fantastic alternative to the tried and tested. Bintangs are still dirt cheap, nasi goreng is still being served up, and child-friendly accommodation is just as easy to come by. But, there are certain things about Labuan Bajo that you just won’t find in Bali.
If you’ve done your dash in Denpasar and are ready to look beyond it, turn your attention to the pink beaches and Komodo dragons of Labuan Bajo.
