Flores Etiquette and Caution

Water based activities such as snorkelling, swimming and diving must be performed under supervision and are always at one’s own risk. Do bear in mind that the weather can be unpredictable with sudden showers and spells of disorientating mist.

Do keep small bills on Flores holidays as smaller restaurants and shops don’t always accept cards though larger hotels and car rental companies do. Some banks have French or English speaking staff. For visitors on a holiday to Flores who intend to stay longer than three months, a residence permit would be required. Pharmacies have a green cross and open from 9am-1pm and 3pm-7pm on weekdays.

115 is the Emergency number.

Electricity: 220/110 v AC, 50Hz. Plugs - round two-pin.

People with disabilities: Unfortunately, the rugged terrain is not suitable for people on wheelchairs and it can be hard to get access to hotels and restaurants on Flores holidays.

Laws forbid topless sunbathing.

Do ask people for permission to take snaps.

Gifts and tips are widely accepted for service in restaurants. A 5% tip is generally appropriate on holidays to Flores.

Please refuse to purchase souvenirs made from parts of sea creatures.
