Komodo Island, The World Heritage in Indonesia
In Komodo Island , Komodo Dragon lives peacefully. Until August of 2009, there are approximately 1300 komodo dragons that are still living.
Beside Komodo Dragons, Komodo Island has very exotic flora. One of them is the timber of Sepang which is used by the native residents as medicine and clothes coloring material. This timber has seeds that taste quite savory.
This Island has a pink beach named Pantai Pantain. Pink? Yes, it’s really pink. The sand of Pantain Beach is pink because it contains red corals. So this white sand and red corals mixed then make Pantain beach colored pink.
