Airasia takes you to the beautiful island of Lombok, a hidden gem awaiting to be discovered
Seeking to escape from your demanding daily routines this summer? We have just the ideal destination for you! Justa short distance away from the beautiful island of Bali is an even more serene paradise; the stunning island of Lombok. A hidden gem waiting to be discovered, Lombok is blessed with a plethora of stunning sceneries, surrounded by mystical clear blue waters. Ride the waves by surfing in Tanjung A’an and go for an underwater adventure by snorkeling and diving around one of the many
Gilis off the coast of Lombok, such as Gili Trangwangan, or stroll down Senggigi and Kuta beach for a more serene respite.
For nature lovers, check out the beautiful Mount Rinjani in all its natural glory. Dominated by the native Sasaks, the culture in Lombok is fascinating and colorful. Experience the cultural treasures first hand by admiring unique blend of native, Islamic, Hindu and Buddhist features of Lingsar Temple and Narmada Park. For a more artistic experience, check out the beauty of intricate local Ikat weavings, exquisite pearls and fine potteries. Don’t forget to treat your taste buds with scrumptious Sasak staple dishes such as Ayam Taliwang, Sate Ikan Tanjung and Pelecing kangkung! If you are a coffee fanatic – as I am – you must try the local Lombok coffee! Its rich aroma, and equally tantalizing taste will truly satisfy your caffeine cravings. With such rich culture perfectly interweaved with stunning landscapes —it’s near impossible not to fall in love with Lombok.
Now that you are well versed with the beauty of Lombok, the next question would be how to get there? Don’t fret! AirAsia offers flights directly from Kuala Lumpur and Johor Bahru to Lombok! Being the only airline that offers direct flights to this exotic island, AirAsia flies twice daily from Kuala Lumpur and three times weekly from Johor Bahru.
Always remember to travel savvy on your trip to Lombok. It is so much more convenient and hassle-free to do a self check-in via web or mobile. For a more comfortable journey, we highly recommend that you book premium seats because after all, extra leg room, the better! Not only that, you will also be given priority boarding. Another in-flight travel tip to keep in mind is to always pre-book your favourite in-flight meals online— that way you will save more and be spoiled with a variety of options!
