LOMBOK

Lombok is an island in the West Nusa Tenggara province of Indonesia. It is part of the chain of the Lesser Sunda Islands, with the Lombok Strait separating it from Bali to the west and the Alas Strait between it and Sumbawa to the east.


Just east of Bali, Lombok in many ways lives up to or exceeds the promotional term, "an unspoiled Bali", although culturally they are quite different. With beautiful beaches, enchanting waterfalls, the large, looming volcano of Mount Rinjani combined with relatively few tourists, Lombok is indeed the paradisical tropical island that many people still mistakenly imagine Bali to be now. Some people also mention that you can see Bali from Lombok, but you can't see Lombok from Bali.


Lombok has been awarded as one of the world's Best Halal Tourism Destination in 2016 and is still expanding its tourism section to gain more visitors from all around the world. Newer hotels, resorts and an international circuit is being built.
