This offers a wonderful opportunity for the discerning travelers to experience natural wonders at a relaxing pace. Apart from its already well-known beaches and the car-free Gili Islands off its coasts, Lombok is also blessed with a lush interior punctuated by the awe-inspiring Mount Rinjani, one of Indonesia’s highest peaks at 3,726 m.
Lombok can be reached via international flights from Singapore (SilkAir) and Kuala Lumpur (AirAsia). Alternative transportation arrangements include numerous fast boat services from Bali (about 2-3 hour ride), and frequent flights from Jakarta and Denpasar (Bali) international airports.
