Why go to the island of Lombok?

Lombok is an Indonesian island in the Malay Archipelago, in the group of the Small Sunda Islands, 35 km east of Bali. It is washed from the south by the Indian Ocean, from the north - by the Bali Pacific Ocean. Fishing is considered traditional entertainment on the island. There are many places where you can rent a boat with all the necessary equipment and go fishing in the sea - for one day or more. The most popular excursion is climbing to the Rinjani volcano. Next to it is a beautiful lake. Two more natural attractions - the waterfalls Sindang Gila and Betara Lenjang.

In the sea next door are the three coral islands of Gili (Gili): Gili Air, Gili Meno and Gili Trawangan, with snow-white beaches, coves with clear water and coral reefs. You can reach the nearest one in 15 minutes by ferry - this is an ideal place for picnics, diving and snorkeling. In addition, there are several Lombok Aboriginal museums-villages on the island - Sasak.
Each province of Indonesia has its own culinary traditions. They are influenced by distance from the ocean, climate and, of course, religious views. Bali is a distinctive Hindu island, it is famous for seafood and meat dishes, spicy-sweet sauces, as well as an abundance of fresh vegetables.
