Flores: The Long Lost Atlantis S.M. Cabot, a Portuguese sailor, arrived in 1544 on an island which he later named Cabo de Flores, meaning Tanjung Bunga. This name was officially ratified by the Dutch colonialists, by the Governor-General of the Dutch East Indies, Hendrik Brouwer, in 1636. However, several centuries before the Portuguese arrived on the mainland of Flores, scientific evidence shows that the island of Flores was located under the sea. Arysio Santos in his book Atlantis: The Lost Continent Finally Found (2005) wrote that Atlantis was in Indonesia, to be precise around the Lesser Sunda Islands. Oppenheimer in Eden in the East (1998), also stated that “eden” aka the Garden of God, aka the world's first lost civilization, is located in eastern Indonesia. Flores, which is debated as the lost Batu Cermin Cave Fossil Atlantis or the lost Eden, indicates that this island, along with its life, is very ancient. There’s a lot of evidence that shows the ancestry of Flores as one of the oldest areas on earth. For example, the discoveries of ancient animal or human fossils in various places in Flores: Stegodon Trigonocephalus Florensis (ancient elephant) in Ola Bula Ngada, Protonegrito Florensis in Liang Toge and Kloang Popot, Homo Floresiensis in Liang Bua, and fossils in Soa which is estimated to be from 700,000 years ago. Nowadays, Flores has developed into various tribes, ethnicities, languages, religions, traditions, and cultures. The areas are growing into tourist destinations with a variety of attractions. Not only history, but also culture, nature, religion, culinary, and others. Whether Flores is the Lost Atlantis or not, doesn't matter. Flores remains a promising tourist destination. 04

Labuan Bajo: An Irresistible Multicultural Destination The name Labuan Bajo is often mentioned in various historical archives, such as Dutch records in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Or, the history of ancient kingdoms that came and conquered Manggarai or Flores, such as the Sultanate of Bima, the Kingdom of Gowa Tallo in South Sulawesi, the Kingdom of Makassar led by Sultan Hasanuddin, until the Dutch took over. Since ancient times, Flores including Bajo has been strongly influenced by various culture. Politics is not the only thing that makes many people came to Bajo. Trade also played a role in the past. Bajo was once the best sea cucumber- producing area in Timor and a natural center for producing sea pearls during its time. Bajo and the villages grew livelier. Cultural assimilation has occurred and can be seen as a form of preserving culture and traditions. Today, Bajo with approximately dozens of different cultural background, including three majorities of ethnic groups—Manggarai, Bima, also Bugis—, Bajo is a lively blend of multicultural people. Labuan Bajo is not only about the magnificent islands, white and pink sandy beaches, mesmerizing underwater world, but also a melting-pot of many cultures that enrich diversity. 05

The Unique Komodo Dragon The Komodo dragon (Varanus komodoensis) is a large species lizard family Varanidae that lives and can only found in Komodo National Park area in Flores, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. It is an ancient species. It can reach length up more than 3 m and weigh up to 126 kg. They have thrived and survived for millions of years. It is said that in 1926, an explorer named Douglas Burden went on an expedition to Komodo Island after heard about rumors of a large-dragon-like lizard in the Lesser Sunda Islands. Burden then wrote a book called Dragon Lizards of Komodo, and became the one who coined the common name “Komodo dragon”. A decades later, in 1980, Indonesia established Komodo National Park to protect the Komodo dragon and its habitat. In 1977, UNESCO recognized Komodo, Rinca, and Padar Island as a Man and Biosphere Reserve. In 1991, the national park inscribed as UNESCO World Heritage Site for its natural beauty, the presence of the world's protected Komodo dragon, marine, and terrestrial biodiversity. Komodo National Park with 173,000 ha area has three main islands; Komodo, Rinca, and Padar. The park also has many other islands, including Padar Island, Bat Island, Gili Motang, and Nusa Kode. Komodo National Park is probably one of the most scenic landscapes in Indonesia. It combines rugged hillsides of savannah grassland, white sandy beaches, the clearest and bluest oceans, mangrove forests, also coral reefs ecosystem. Seafaring with Phinisi After arriving in Labuan Bajo—the gateway of Komodo—, traveling around the islands can be relatively easy. Whether you are going on a short day trip or a long day trip, the one and only way to hopping around the national park area is waterways. There are various types of boat journey in Komodo National Park. There are slow boat, speed boat, and one of a kind, Phinisi. Phinisi is a wooden boat with a long-standing distinctive traditions of boat building. Originated from South Sulawesi in the 19th century, phinisi first made by the Konjo tribe who resides at the Bulukumba Regency. In December 2017, UNESCO formally recognised the cultural significance of the boat-building and include the art of boatbuilding in South Sulawesi among the world’s Intangible Cultural Heritage. 06
