Hi guys,
I'm in the process of throwing a trip together to Lembata island, East of flores. Anyone been? Suggestions of places to stay, things to do? Things to avoid? :) possibilities of hiring a scooter?
Oh, any other ideas about travel east of flores would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers
Sean

hey, i traveled to pulau lembata in aug 2015, you can visit the famous whaling village of lamalera, climb or circumnavigate ile api, visit pulau adonara or just checkout some traditional markets and villages. transport between places isn't easy as the roads aren't in top shape... i organised motorcycle rental through hotel rejeki (in the main town of lewoleba) who will also pick you up from the airport or ferry port and help arrange onward boat travel... i also believe there is a newer hotel in town now... most of the inhabitants are christians but don't expect a party island, it's very traditional.

Thanks for that... I like the idea of hiring a scooter and doing a bit of exploring.
