Flores is one of a beautiful tourist destination in Eastern Indonesia. It is located in East Nusa Tenggara Province. In July 2010, I visited Flores for five days with E to celebrate our second anniversary. I would say that Flores is extremely beautiful. There are no skyscraper or many vehicles around. The air is just very clean, the place is just very quiet and peaceful.

While I was in Flores, I visited number of popular tourist destination such as  Kelimutu Mountain  and First Catholic Church in Sika.  It was really such a wonderful trip. But one of the memorable moment was my tour guide took us to have dinner with local people underneath the tree. We had a very simple homemade local food such as dried fish, chili and corn rice. It was very tasty. I really had a wonderful time with them.  It is always good to be able to see the local people daily life in their small town and their hospitality to new people.

I would say that I was really satisfied with my trip to Flores and I am looking forward to do similar trip either to Eastern Indonesia or West Indonesia.
