Traveling to Flores is an excursion to explore the paradise away from the bustling lifestyle and to experience the virtual life of the Florenese. Thus, you will get to know a different but probably more exciting kind of shopping beyond your notions of malls and supermarkets. Shopping malls are still very small and basically limited to Maumere, Ende and Ruteng. The hustle bustle of Florenese market (Pasar) will bring you closer to an important part of Florenese daily life. You will see not only a range of familiar or unknown local products, you may also witness a barter transaction, which used to be the traditional way of doing business in Flores.
