However, after more than four months of quarantine and evaluation, the world is now slowly embracing new normalities. National parks and other natural attractions across Indonesia are preparing to welcome tourists once again.

Get Used to Extra Hygiene and Cleanliness
Though the Komodo Dragon Island and arounds are quite barren from civilization, that doesn’t mean you can neglect the strict Corona safety and hygiene protocols. Your liveaboard will be disinfected as often as possible. Passengers should follow the disinfecting rules and maintain their own cleanliness. Hand sanitiser, alcohol spray, and face mask will be the holy trio that should be with you always.
No More Big Parties Travelling to Komodo Dragon Island
It sucks, right? Meeting new friends on Komodo liveaboard used to be the spice of the travels. It’s so fun to share stories with likeminded strangers who ended up to be our best buddies in the trip. After the coronavirus however, this won’t remain the same. Strangers make us cautious and sharing facilities with them can lead to anxiety. Well, if this bothers you, the only option to lessen the risk and enjoy the Komodo tour at its upmost is chartering the whole liveaboard for yourself. It’s quite pricey, but highly recommended for travelling during the pandemic.
