Six Gadgets to Level Up Komodo Cruise Experience

It’s an understatement to call the Komodo National Park as heaven on earth. For us, this isolated frontier resemble more like what the earth looks like millions years ago. Chains of small uninhibited islands, which wavy hills blanketed only by dry savannah, rise abruptly from clear turquoise sea. White shores lined every island, creating sharp contrast between the crisps hills and the ocean. Some secluded cloves are blushing with glowing pink sand, a rare thing on earth. One of the best way to enjoy it all, obviously, is through a sailing trip with Komodo cruise wooden phinisi.

Labuan Bajo has some of the best cruise collections to immerse you in the beauty of this frontier and spoiling the passengers with its creature comfort at the same trip. While we agree that cruisers are the best to revel in Komodo’s wildness, you could always enhance the experience with these simple gadgets. Miss nothing, capture everything!
