From Vietnam to Sri Lanka, Borneo to Thailand, South-East Asia’s National Parks have some of the world’s most fascinating wildlife, from orangutans and elephants to ‘dragons’. Here are the must-see hotspots.
1: Komodo National Park, Indonesia
There’s no need for Game of Thrones or The Lord of the Rings. Here on Earth, specifically in Indonesia, it’s easy to see real life dragons.
The UNESCO World Heritage Site is the only place in the world to see the Komodo dragon, the world’s largest lizard.
Also known as the Komodo Monitor, the giant lizards are found on the Indonesian islands including Komodo, Flores, Rinca and Padar. The scaly giants can grow up to three metres in length, weigh in at up to as much as 70 kilograms.
