Lombok Island in Indonesia’s Nusa Tenggara Province is Bali’s next-door neighbour that offers an additional island-hopping escape. Besides being the main island home of the 3 popular Gili islands, Lombok is also known for its colourful Sasak culture, great dive spots, scenic and secluded beaches, beautiful waterfalls and lush forests surrounding its active volcano, Mount Rinjani.
A trip to Lombok promises a tropical island retreat that combines overland adventures and rugged natural beauty, with a hint of exoticism through its well-preserved traditional arts and historical landmarks. Honeymooners and backpackers love Lombok for its more passive ambience compared to Bali, and many admit that Lombok seems like how Bali must’ve been several decades earlier.
