Lombok, Indonesia: The ‘Other Bali’

25 minutes away from one of SEA’s hottest tourist destinations is a quieter, more authentic paradise.

When people think of beaches and nature in Indonesia, the island that often comes to mind is Bali. However, there is another destination worth adding to your itinerary, if ever you decide to explore this country — that place is Lombok.

It’s just as blissful, just as breathtakingly beautiful as its famous neighbor, but nowhere near as crowded. Here, we take you through its peaks, shores and man-made points of interest.
