Lombok is less than an hour's flight from Bali, and equal in beauty, yet a world apart. Unspoilt and unhurried, there is a saying that Lombok is what Bali was 20 years ago. Lombok is enriched with rugged landscape of unspoiled earth, endless rice paddies, fruit orchards and majestic jungle hills. The island also offers pristine beaches, excellent for snorkelling and diving, as well as the breath-taking Mt. Rinjani volcano, all complemented with rural villages and waterfalls. Although the island is predominately Muslim, much of the population still maintain animist traditions with strong roots to their ancestral culture, just like the Balinese people. If your holiday choice includes 'unspoilt' then a visit to the charming island of Lombok is a must.
