Everyone who come to Indonesia, always know that Bali is favorite place for holiday. But i think it’s too mainstream. Why? Because Bali is too crowded for me and i can meet traffic in touristic spots like Legian and Kuta.
Have you heard about Lombok? If you looking for peaceful place to release your stress from daily activities, please come to this destination!
It takes only 30-40 mins flight from Bali, or 4 hours by ferry from Padangbai to Lembar.
What’s famous in Lombok? Of course the gili islands, there are 3 islands : gili air, gili meno, and the famous one gili trawangan. If you come to gili trawangan, the local feels like foreigner, because this place full of ‘bule’.
If you want to visit quiet places, i suggest to visit Kuta beach
this is not Kuta Bali. There are others nice beaches nearest like Mawun, Selong Belanak and Tanjung Aan. My favorite is Mawun beach because the wave is calm and nice for swimming. But if you looking for surfing spot, i suggest to come to Selong Belanak.
Left : Kuta Beach. Right : Selong Belanak.
Curious for other places to visit in Lombok? I will give detail in others post. Keep enjoying! 🙂
P.S. If you have any questions about Lombok trip, don’t hesitate to ask me. I will answer if i know.
