A Total TaiTai Tale

Tale of a Total TaiTai who was in Beijing & Beyond and is now in Singapore & Surroundings!

And this will conclude our 3-day 2-night in the Komodo National Park.

We are so glad we got to go as the Indonesian authorities are talking about closing the park for a while to protect the ecosystem or levy a much larger fee to be able to enter the National Park.

With just 2,800 Komodo roaming wild they are an endangered species like the orangutan of of Borneo, the Sumatran tiger and the birds of paradise in the two Papuan province (all in Indonesia)

From 44,00 tourists in 2008 to 80,000 in 2014 and 176,000 last years, the province officials have suggested that each visitor might soon pay Us$1,000 each to view the dragon and the 173,00ha of the park (each foreign tourist now pays US$17!)

You don’t even have to dive or snorkel to see beautiful marine life with water so clear. #Starfish

I’ve never snorkeled so many time and each time it was amazing.

We are in manta Ray and our guide warned us that there were strong current here.

Spoiler Alert: we got back on that tiny boat on the horizon 😉

There are a few Pink Beach in the National Park.

There are beautiful in real life but extremely hard to photograph and render the true beauty of it.

The pink comes from microscopic organisms called Foraminifera

Once you’ve visited all the main islands you start going to the sandbar.

No picture can do the landscape justice: pink sand beach, crystal clear shallow water. Plus since we were off season barely anybody. I think that’s usually the definition of Paraside.
