Besides clothes, colorful paintings are also available for sale at the complex.

To make you familiar with the process of designing the Batik products, below are some of steps that these products go through before becoming a final product –

Making designs on the white material:
a. Copying the original designs; b. Directly without copying before.

Covering designs with wax (klowong) on both sides.
b. Filling designs with ornaments and small dots.
c. Covering some special part of the designs to get the second color (sawuk)
d. Covering some special part of the designs to get the third color (tembokan)

Traditional colors like blue, brown and light yellow are used for a better appearance.

All most all travel agencies in Bali can arrange a short trip to this complex.

To my disappointment, I could not get pictures of batik products as photography is prohibited inside the complex.

My trip was sponsored by Om Tourism – one of India’s leading travel agencies.

Hardly, you would come across a person who does not enjoy sunrise or sunset in this world.

I was quite amused by the beauty of Labuan Bajo port, which is located at the western end of Flores in the Nusa Tenggara region of east Indonesia.

While enjoying a memorable sunset at Paradise bar, I managed to capture a lot of images of this quaint port, which is gateway to the world famous Komodo National Park. You can clearly see here how nature can be awe-inspiring. Of late, this place has become quite popular among tourists because of its rare pink beaches and Komodo National Park. You can read more about Labuan Bajo here.

Indonesia’s Glorious Pink Beach

One of the most important tourist spots of Komodo Island is its glorious pink beach.

I will recommend you to first make a trip to Komodo National Park before visiting this amazing and unique beach situated west of Flores island in East Nusatenggara.

The beach is named as Pink beach due to its appearance. It looks pink due to amalgamation of white sand combined with red sand, formed from pieces of Foraminifera.

The beach is also known as Red Beach.

Upon your arrival, enjoy swimming here as it will literally make you feel like a fish. It is a perfect place for snorkeling due to crystal-clear water and colorful coral reefs. During my trip, I found many local people enjoying barbecue and listening to popular Hindi film songs. 🙂

I was in no mood to leave this glorious beach, but unfortunately I had to.

How to reach here: One can reach here through a speedboat, which you can hire at the Labuano Bajo port. And don’t forget to carry water bottle and sunscreen lotion before visiting this place !
