Essential Travel Tips in Lombok

  • You will get your feet wet when you board the small boat for the Lombok island especially when the low tide because the water is to shallow for the boat to land to the shore, use slippers/sandals and short.

  • Do not buy any mosquitoes coil from some kids at the harbor, as they are trying to sell things at the highest they can. There are lots of shops on the Islands selling those stuffs with better prices
  • Do not try to look at the things that they offers, and do not make any promises to say “maybe later”. Those guys can recognize your face and ask for the promises.
  • Carry some amount of cash to pay taxi or public transport. Taxi is meterred, while public transport ranged between 2000 – 4000 Rupiahs.
  • Be aware of strong currents while swimming or snorkeling. It is best to ask the advice of a dive master before swimming alone.
  • Do not leave any valuable belongings unattended at the beach while swimming or snorkeling. Ask for a deposit box at the hotel where you stay.
  • Most tourist facilities in Lombok (Gili Islands & Senggigi) remain open during Ramadhan. Local Restaurants might close in residential area in Mataram or Cakranegara to respect the majority of Moesleem Fasting. Tourist are suggested to eat and drinks in hotel’s or resort’s area.
