Trip Of Wonders - Lombok (Part 2)

Greetings from The Great London!!! Meanwhile I'm living my dream, here is the second destination of my #WonderfulIndonesia trip. I visited Lombok where it is surround with unspoiled beautiful islands with various cultural.

#1 Sasak Sade Village
This time with Ministry of Indonesia Tourism along with other SEA blogers, we have the chance to experience the traditional lifestyle of one of the tribe in Indonesia in Sade Village located in Central Lombok. The village is inhibited by only about 400 hundred people. Many believe that all the people living in Sade Village are related by blood to each other since marying inside the family is one of the old traditions that are still preserved by the Sasak Tribe. One unique tradition of Sasak Tribe is their traditional house that is built in rows that is made of wood and bamboo for its walls and thatched roofs.
 

#2 Gili Islands
The Gili Islands are an archipalego of three small islands – Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air. If you are looking for a remote island experience, you will love Gili. Diving in around the Gilis is popular due the the abudance of marine life and atttractive coral formations. But if you are do not have diving licence, perhaps snorkeling can be your alternative option.

Automobiles and motorised traffic is prohibited on the islands by local ordianance, so the preferred method of transportation is by foot and bicycle or the horse-drawn carriage called a cidomo.  It is also the reason why I love Gili where you can enjoy and embrace a slower paced life. I also revisted The Swing at Ombak Sunset Hotel. The breathtaking sunset moment is defiintely an Instagram-worthy which you would not want to miss when you are at Gili.

 

Up next, Banyuwangi x
