Komodo Island is the NEW 7 Wonders of The World. Who is not familiar with the island of Komodo dragons! Since the entry into N7Wonders finalists, Komodo island is now visited by both local and foreign tourists. Unfortunately, the number of local tourists visiting the island of Komodo is much less than foreign tourists. This is due to lack of promotion of tourism in Komodo island and domestic long distance is not less costly to get to this place.
Travel to the Komodo Island is the NEW 7 Wonders of The World can be done via land, sea or air. For those of you who like adventure or backpacker’s, you should try to land routes that will be around most of the province of Nusa Tenggara. The experience that you will make yourself feel more rigid and patience in life. Why? because the latency time-consuming and you must be willing to mutually transport with a time of uncertainty. Well, for those of you who do not like to bother, you should use the air route from the airport soetta-Bali-Labuan Bajo at much more expensive. Heard from some media that the Komodo Island is the NEW 7 Wonders of The World will be removed from 27 finalists N7Wonders make my heart jumped. Honestly, I was shocked at the news. Various questions came to mind me “why? how come? What is wrong? “and after I read further information from the media, I realized it turns out to be one of the finalists N7W requires great cost and sacrifice. I again remembered my trip a few days ago to the island of Komodo.
I and some of my friends do the ‘expedition’ to the small eastern Indonesia. Honestly, I was one who greatly admired the charm and natural beauty of East Indonesia, which saves a million natural charm, tradition and culture are still very natural and far from civilization touch of modernization. Unfortunately, the beauty of nature is very far from the word ‘beautiful and appropriate’ in terms of regional development and management undertaken half-heartedly. Consequently, if we want to visit the tourist attractions, extortion and other costs as well as the number of fraudulent acts committed by various groups making the most of Indonesian people choose to holiday abroad is certainly a huge cost but give a sense of security, comfort and free of hidden costs. My journey to the Komodo Island is the NEW 7 Wonders of The World. Me and a friend of mine went from Bandung to Yogyakarta by train. In Yogyakarta, we met other friends who would do the same journey with us. Be ten of us and began our journey using bus. A very long trip and long made me realize how big Indonesia and will never succeed me go one by one. Almost half of East Indonesia succeeded in our crawl and this is a pride for me.
After take as long as 69 hours, we also arrived at Labuan Bajo, one of the inhabited islands in the Komodo Islands. Here I see the building is not a government priority. Evidenced by the high prices of basic goods due to the chaotic distribution channels of goods, plus more, the island is located very far from everywhere. When studied further, tourism on the island of Komodo enough to produce huge amounts of funds. But, why the life of ordinary people? I mean, with the amount of local revenue from tourism alone could be ascertained that these funds can be used to develop the area so as not left behind as many islands in Indonesia.
