I love to travel, and I mean I really  enjoy  it. But convincing my friends  to try something a little different can be a lot like pulling teeth (or at least what I imagine pulling teeth would be like). They always want to go to the same, it has been done before, travel destinations.  In South East Asia, Bali and Phuket are definitely two of those locations. Not to take anything away from these lovely spots but the adventurer in me is always on the lookout for something a little out of the ordinary. I enjoy visiting places that I will remember for the rest of my live. 

 

If you're like me, then you've come to the right place today because I've got a travel idea for you that is going to knock your socks off.

 

Komodo National Park! 

 

If you've never heard of Komodo National Park, you're not alone.  It's located smack dab in the middle of  the Indonesian archipelagoThis isn't just another national park.  Komodo National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site  covering  beautiful  land and marine wilderness. Nowhere else will you find such  a diverse  range  of fish and coral species. It really feels like entering a fairyland of life and beauty – today’s Garden of Eden. 

 

Aptly named after its territory, the island is best known for the Komodo Dragon. If you're having trouble  imagining  one of these, think of a giant dinosaur like lizard with four legs, a forked tongue and alligator skin.  

 

Seeing one in the wild almost feels like looking at a scene from Jumanji. Armoured in rough scales, these  giant  creatures can grow up to 10 feet in length and weigh nearly 200 pounds.  Komodo Dragons also have a secret  lethal  weapon  – their  bite  contains  a virulent and  deadly bacteria  that will weaken their prey as it enters their bloodstream in a single  bite.  Excited yet? Needless to say, the local guides are very familiar with these animals and how best to keep tourists like us safe. 

 

The best time of the year to visit the  Komodo National Park is usually somewhere between April and October, giving you quite a range of travel dates to fit in with just about anyone's schedule. 

 

Watching the  amazing  dragons isn't the only thing to do  there either. Komodo also boasts some of the best diving in the region. The marine life is a Scuba diver’s dream and the clear blue water and green surrounding hills offer something for every holiday maker from snorkelling to trekking.  

 

You won’t be disappointed!
