When tourists get overwhelmed by the hectic and crowded life in Bali; they immediately reach out for Lombok!
And it is actually the best decision you can make. The gorgeous island is treasured with outstanding beaches, strong culture, heavenly nature, and a Caribbean like crystal blue water. It is located east of Bali and west of Sumbawa, and part of the Lesser Sunda island chain.
By being equally magical but not as popular as its superstar neighbor Bali; Lombok makes the perfect gate away destination spot.
