Various batik products both for women and men are available inside the complex. Don’t expect bargaining, as the rates of the priceless products are fixed. If you are a big fan of hand-made products then this is the place you should visit once.

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.

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.
