Jakarta. The Komodo Nature Adventure was held in Labuan Bajo, East Nusa Tenggara, on Nov. 24-26, and was participated by GenPI, an online community dedicated to promote Indonesian tourism.

The event was also participated by bloggers, media and foreign tourists, who explored Labuan Bajo, Padar and Rinca island.

"As a Unesco World Heritage Site in Komodo National Park (TNK), this must-visit destination invites participants to enjoy the pink beach by swimming or snorkeling," said head district of West Manggarai Agustinus Ch Dhula on Monday (27/11).

He also invited the travelers to explore the savanna in Rinca islands. The savanna offers interesting view where the komodos can often be found.

Travelers were also taken to the Kalong island, the island of a thousand bats, and Strawberry Rock, a site that offers a cluster of exotic pink corals.

After the eastern part of Indonesia was named the main tourism destination, Labuan Bajo has been actively promoting its tourism.

Tourism Minister Arief Yahya also supported this promotion activity, as Labuan Bajo and Komodo Island have been featured in international media such as National Geographic and Vogue magazine.
