A visit to this Bugis fishing village of around 1,100 people, reached by a 30-minute boat ride from the pier in Komodo National Park, gives an interesting perspective into the realities of life in a very remote corner of the world. The residents are used to seeing tourists, but you may not be used to seeing the basic way of life that unfolds in this village, which existed long before the park was established. Stroll past stilt houses, and learn about the school and the village way of life during tours, which are part of a community effort to support the local people.
