Holiday in Lombok


Lombok is an island that is located in Indonesia and famous among Malaysian tourists since the last 5 years, yet still new for most of the tourists in the world. Surprisingly, some people from Indonesia themself are not really familiar with the tourism there even though it is nearby the beach of paradise, Bali. It only takes 1 hour by speed boat from Bali to Lombok. Lombok is surrounded by beautiful small islands and one of the famous one is Gili Trawangan Island. This island is highly recommended if you want to experience a pleasure and serene vacation with your spouse or family. The first thought when a Malaysian heard about Lombok is the crime that happens a lot. For instance, unofficial married (No permission by the family of both parties), robbery, kidnap,adultery and more. In fact, that is just minority as well as what happen in other countries and people there are actually nice, warm and friendly.
