Lombok is a beautiful island situated East of the Indonesian island of Bali. Known for its gorgeous landscapes and crystal-clear waters, Lombok is any traveller’s dream destination. Although this island is exceptionally underrated compared to its famous neighbour, Bali, it has a lot to offer for anyone who wants to experience the island life.
From Canggu airport, you can take a quick 1-hour flight to Lombok’s international airport. An alternative route would be to catch a 2-hour ferry ride from Padang Bai to Lembar, Lombok. If you don’t want to go through the hassle of arranging your transport you can decide to book a Lombok Island tour package for convenience.
While you are on the island, the following experience is a must-do.
1. Explore the Beauty of North Lombok
Experience the authentic culture of Northern Lombok by going deep into nature. While exploring the untouched beauty of the northern island, you will be able to experience local life. The greeneries that surround the area of Mount Rinjani is awe-inspiring. Walk past the famous Sendang Gile Waterfall and take photos worthy of lasting a lifetime. Visit the nearby village of Senaru, to meet some locals and try their local cuisine.
2. A Night out on Gili Trawangan
For any nightlife enthusiasts, Lombok has many ongoing parties available. Even though Gili island isn’t part of mainland Lombok, it poses as one of three smaller islands that are only a quick ferry ride away. This island, however, has no roads. Thus, the only way you can get around is by foot, bike or horse carriage.
Head down to Gili Trawangan for a great nightlife with clubs, dance floors and live music.
3. Relax in A Hot Spring
After trekking and chasing waterfalls on Mount Rinjani, you can relax your sore body at Air Kalak hot spring. Situated 200 meters from Mount Rinjani’s main campsite, this hot spring offers a nuanced soak of warm and cold. According to locals, the water has medicinal value that can cure diseases such as high blood pressure and stroke. An excellent stop after a busy and tiring Lombok island tour package excursion.
4. Pearls, Pearls, Pearls
It is not widely known, but Lombok is famous for its pearl farms that produce some of the world’s highest quality pearls. Visit the farm of Autore to find out everything about pearl cultivation. You can purchase pearl strings and jewellery as unique Lombok souvenirs for your loved ones.
5. Views from Bukit Pergasingan
When there’s not enough time to hike up Mount Rinjani, then trekking up Bukit Pergasingan is a great alternative. Unlike Mount Rinjani, the trail to its peak only needs an hour. The hill is 1,700 meters above sea level and has a gorgeous view of local fields, mountains, and nature that is best enjoyed at either sunrise or sunset.
