The term chasing the dragon has many connotations however in a literal sense there is no better place to see and indeed , chase a dragon as the legendary Komodo Island off Flores in Indonesia. Many people have difficulty in finding out more information about the mythical island or the dragon itself and will be typing things like Komodo dragon to see into search engines like Google with little or no results, so I have compiled some information to help out holiday makers and adventure seekers get the very best out of a tour to Komodo. The island makes up part of the Indonesian archipelago and is famed for its natural beauty and of course the giant lizard which makes the island its home. The Komodo dragon is large and can grow to up to 4 meters and can weigh the same as a small car but can surprisingly run quite fast and also is able to climb trees.
In recent years a new industry has opened up on the island that has really accelerated Komodo as a world class holiday destination, that industry is diving and with stunning coral reefs and a huge variety of marine life including turtles, manta rays, sharks and even the world’s largest (yet funnily the safest as it eats plankton) shark; the mighty whale shark. A diving tour to Komodo and just diving in komodo in general is amazing.
