East Java / Flores for 5 days?

Hi There

I am meeting a friend in Bali and we have 2 weeks to explore Bali/Lombok/Gili's - however I am traveling alone for a week prior (female 28yrs old)

I'm now trying to decide if it is worth flying to Flores for 5 days, or head over to East Java (mount bromo) for a few days instead. Is 5 days enough for Flores/Komodo?

I am quite well traveled though it's been a few years since doing this alone and keen not to head too much off the beaten track

if in bali there are tours available that go to bromo and ijen or wheeever for aa few days. I did one a few years back. transport between places, etc would have been a hassle without time on your side.

if you decide on flores for a week I would choose only one area and explore locally -eh Labuan bajo or maumere. both are good flores destinations and there is heaps to see locally.

either one you will have a great time!!!
