Lombok was the 4th stop on our #TripofWonders tour, the first leg of my 1-month Indonesia adventure. I’ve always had a curious eye on this place ever since I first heard about it. In fact, I had already planned to visit on another trip back to the Indonesia.
We flew to Lombok via Bali after exploring Yogyakarta. Lombok was quite a big island, so we didn’t get to see everything. I was however stunned by the rich culture of the Sasak people & beautiful island views at the Gilis despite our short visit. Lombok is definitely a worthy detour if ever you first yourself in Bali.
