I initially wanted to extend Christmas holiday to also do Flores overland tour but Hubbie can not take any leave outside public holiday just like last year and this time we are doing the trip just on our own so I decided to just go back on the 26th as Flores overland involve a lot of tracking and I need Hubby to carry Alyssa.
So here’s our short itinerary.
22Dec: fly to LBJ from Jakarta using citilink
23Dec-25 Dec: Liveaboard
26 Dec: fly back to Jakarta
I have to been to LBJ and KNP and did the liveaboard in 2010. But for hubby and kids this is their first time. You can do daytrip now using the fast speed boat and stay the night in the Hotel but for a different experience and a more relaxing I recommend doing a liveaboard and if you have the budget do private trip.
My liveaboard trip was arranged by Jeffry Buana (his IG komodoekowisatatravel), same guy who arranged my trip back in 2010.
We were flying Citilink which now offered a direct flight from Jakarta to Labuan Bajo. Surprisingly with a cheaper price than Garuda, it has a bigger plane. We find Citilink was pretty reliable and always use it if we can’t get a good deal from Garuda.
