Traveling to Flores is an excursion to explore the paradise away from the bustling lifestyle. Rare to find modern shopping mall or supermarkets there on Flores.
But it would be a great experience on virtual life of the Florenese. You will experience a different but probably more exciting kind of shopping beyond your notions of malls and supermarkets. Shopping malls are still very small and bassically limmited 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 bisnis in Flores.
