3D/2N OR 4D/3N ISLAND HOPPING FROM LOMBOK
One of the popular ways to get to Labuan Bajo by sea is to join the 3D/2N or 4D/3N islands hopping trip from Lombok. Normally the trip starts from Senggigi/Mataram and prices are around IDR 2.200.000 to IDR 3.300.000 per person. During the trip you can visit local villages and explore the unknown islands with trekking or snorkeling. It is a very good option for travelers since you can experience new things on your way to Labuan Bajo.
BUS AND FERRY FROM BALI
Going with this option is the cheapest way of all. However, it consumes much more time, up to 45 hours, depending on the overland bus speed and stops. You will have three ferry crossings, Bali to Lombok, Lombok to Sumbawa, and Sumbawa to Labuan Bajo. You will have multiple buses to go to the next harbor. Once again, please bear in mind that waiting while changing the bus might happen. However, please make sure in advance that all overland bus tickets you purchase from Bali have included all three ferry crossings and those multiple buses. Thus, before you hand over your money, ask them to write it down on your ticket, so that they are not going to deceive you in the middle of the trip by asking any extras. This option is incredibly exhausting, but the experience can’t be repeated.
