Flores Indonesia

Flores (Flowers in Portuguese) is one of the Lesser Sunda Islands. Its land area is about 20 times bigger than Singapore but its population is only one-third that of Singapore. It is located to the east of Bali (about 500km as the crow flies), west of East Timor and south of Sulawesi. The peoples of Flores are almost entirely Roman Catholic Christians whereas most other Indonesians are Muslim – the result of its past colonization by Portugal. http://iwannatravel.com.sg/7d6n-flores-outback-trip
