3 DAYS 2 NIGHTS LOMBOK INTRODUCTION
DAY 1: ARRIVE LOMBOK. TRANSFER TO SENGGIGI [-]
Arrive Lombok Praya Airport; transfer to your hotel at Senggigi beach zone. Check in, and you are free at leisure. Take the opportunity to swim in the clear waters or stroll along the beach and the main road of Senggigi.
DAY 2: GILI TRIP - TWO OPTIONS [B,L,D]
Full day to one of the Gilis [small islands]:
OPTION I: GILI TRAWANGAN
The tour starts at Lendang Bajur market where you can buy fruits & snacks for the journey. Then, travel through the green hills and head towards the coast. And on the Pusuk Pass, at a cliff side, wild monkeys wait eagerly for you to feed them peanuts and bananas.
Upon reaching Teluk Nara, board a thirty-to-forty minutes outrigger boat ride to Gili Trawangan, the liveliest of Lombok's famous three gilis (the other two are Meno and Air). Here, you can swim in the crystal clear waters and relax at the many cafes & restaurants along the dazzling white beach. Or, on your own expense, snorkel at the lovely coral reefs.
Lunch will be at a local restaurant in Gili Trawangan.
Late afternoon, take the outrigger back to Teluk Nara, and if time permits, make shopping stops; after dinner, return to your hotel.
OPTION II: GILI NANGGU & GILI SUDAK
While Gili Trawangan is the most famous gili off Lombok, there are others such as Nanggu and Sudak that will captivate you with their tranquil scenes.
Travel south of Senggigi for about two hours to a bay in Sekotong and then take a forty-minute outrigger boat ride for Gili Nanggu and later, Gili Sudak. Both of these small islands do not have any medium to large resorts and consequently attract less visitors. But these factors allow you to explore without much hassle the white sandy beaches and clear waters with their abundant fish and coral reefs.
Lunch will be at a local restaurant.
Late afternoon, if time permits, make shopping stops on the way and after dinner, back to your hotel.
DAY 03: CULTURAL TOUR. DEPART LOMBOK [B,L]
After breakfast, visit Banyu Mulek, famous for its clay pots for everyday use that are simple and uncomplicated in design but yet can be household decorative items. The tour continues to Setanggor Village where you will be welcomed by a real Sasak music band, Gendang Beleq and a Sasak Dance performance. Gendang Beleq bands can be found on the streets of Lombok during wedding ceremonies. After this warm welcome, see the cassava garden and enjoy a BBQ grilled cassava. Have a traditional Sasak lunch in the middle of a fresh green rice field. See the village women weaving and selling their products in a small shop. Leaving the heartwarming people of Setanggor Village the tour continues to the breathtaking and pristine beaches of Selong Belanak Beach and transfer to airport for next flight.
