Lombok, a beautiful island known as The Island of a Thousand Mosques, is often shaded by the glory of the world-renowned Bali. However, tourists who are looking for something new other than Bali would not miss Lombok as their travel destination. Most of the tourists go on a backpacking vacation or take travel packages.
Lombok is one of the islands in the Nusa Tenggara Barat (NTB) province. It is the part of Sunda Kecil Isles and separated with Bali by Lombok Strait on the West side. To the East, Lombok is separated with Sumbawa Island by Alas Strait.
Tourists can fly directly to Lombok International Airport from big cities in Indonesia. Around Lombok, there are adequate public transportations that can take you around such as taxi and Damri bus. The Damri bus serves the routes from the airport to the Senggigi, Mandalika Station in Mataram City, and Pancor Station in East Lombok. The bus ticket to Senggigi costs around IDR 35,000, IDR 25,000 to Mataram, and IDR 30,000 to Pancor Station. The trip from the Lombok International Airport to Mataram only takes around 45 minutes. You can also choose a travel package that includes the trip from the airport to the travel destination.
Not only by plane, but the tourists can also get to Lombok by taking the ferry ship or speedboat from Bali and Sumbawa. The Lembar Harbor is one of the harbors that serve the ferries from Padang Bai and Bali. Meanwhile, the Kayangan Harbor on the East Lombok serves ships from Sumbawa.
With its white sand beaches, challenging waves for surfers, and hiking routes through paddy fields, forests, and tobacco trees, Lombok is full of equatorial travel attractions. The beauty of its travel destinations can be divided into these zones:
