We have traveled to Komodo National Park, once in the dry season in November and once in the rainy season in February. The islands are much more brown in November, yet still so beautiful. The time of day doesn't really matter as there is plenty...More

The view from the top really is gorgeous; however, if you have limited time or are trying to decide between tours, I recommend skipping Padar Island. The entrance fee is outrageous (approx. 250,000Rp/person), this price has drastically increased in the last two years. It is...More
