Lombok Day 1 part I : arrive in Lombok

    about 2.5 hours journey from Lombok Airport to Bangsal.
    stop at Mataram and Senggigi while on the way to Bangsal

    about 30 minutes boat ride from Bangsal Jetty to Gili Trawangan

    Mount Bali from top. Lombok is an island located next to Bali

    new  Lombok International Airport . old airport was located in Mataram

    from Lombok Airport , we head up to Bangsal , where we take a boat
    to reach Gili Trawangan.
    Cheapest way to to go Bangsal is to take public bus from Mataram City
    which costs IDR200k / pax ( Airport-Mataram-bangsal ).
    but I Suggest to hire Airport Taxi instead. Innova from Airport to Bangsal
    costs IDR300k return , but  more flexible ,
    gives advantage to stop at places of interest along the way to Bangsal.
    our driver Pak Nia ( Toyota Innova ) : Whatsapp 082340073686

    this sight reminds me to India ( click here )

    Delicious Nasi Balap Puyung

    Paddy field along the way

    Lombok is predominantly accupied by Muslims , hence plenty
    of mosques along the way

    stop by for prayers at Mataram Islamic Center

    stop by at Senggigi Beach before reaching Bangsal

    Sengigi Beach is less crowded that Gili Trawangan , and has a more
    ' family - oriented ' vibes

   arrive at bangsal Jetty

    ticket to Gili Trawangan from Bangsal.
    common ticket costs IDR 15k @ RM4.50 one way

 arrive at Gili Trawangan
