Lombok has attracted lots of internation attention recently, and at the moment is presenting one of the most rapidly growing tourist destinations in Indonesia. At the same time, only a few have accurate expectations and are filled with very much controversial information. Therefore, you might wonder "What should I expect and is it worth risking exploring this relatively new destination.

Lombok is often touted as "the next Bali" or "unpoilt Bali", and you might hear some locals saying "Everything you find in Bali, you will find in Lombok but what you find in Lombok you won't find anywhere else". We very much agree with this statement. 

THE NORTH

If you rent a scooter and drive further north from Tipsea Turtle, we can guarantee you will be astonished by the natural scenes and the quietness of the roads. While some scenes might be reminding you of the picturesque Instagram locations in Bali, the amount of traffic is much less heavy. With huge government investment into infrastructure, the roads are surprisingly GOOD, and due the mountainous shape of the island most of them are laid through beaches which leaves you with magnificent views. 

One thing is definite – exploring THE NORTH on a scooter won’t leave you disappointed!

THE SOUTH

While the North scenes mostly consist of rice terraces, palm plantations, mountanious views and forests, the South is the hotspot for surfers and have some of the finest Indonesian beaches. To get the most of the trip it’s best to be able to drive a scooter. 

RISKS TO METIGATE

As we want you to have an incredible experience, we want you to be warned about things that might dissapoint you:

–  As Lombok is still largely untouristy, some places might have a limited variety of food. You will always find rice with vegetables and chicken but it might be hard to find Italian pizza with American burgers 🙂 

–  Lombok is a muslim island and in some parts mosques can be pretty loud. It’s good to have earplugs in your travel kit and be psychologically prepared 

– As in many undeveloped countries, you might be approached in harbours and airports. It’s good to have transport arranged in advance to make sure you pay a fair price and reduce the travel stress. Please contact us if you need any help.

 

Lombok is a very safe place with incredibly nice people. Please get in touch with us if you have any question about the island or if you need any organizational help. It’s become our home and we’d love to help!
