Most people think about Bali and maybe the Gili Islands when talking about Indonesia. Only the fewest however know about Bali’s neighbouring island Lombok. Unjustly! I have been there last week and loved it.
That’s why I decided to publish this post with 20 Instagram Photos that show why you should definitely also travel to Lombok during your Indonesia trip. When I could convince you don’t forget to read my post about what you have to see in Lombok.
Most people arrive in Senggigi. Here are most hotels and a nice beach.
From here you can make a day trip to the Pusuk Monkey Forest and make new friends.

The food on Lombok is so delicious.
Also the people are a reason to go to Lombok. They are so friendly, helpful and welcoming.
From Lombok you should definitely go to the Gilis. Paradise! Even the dog is enjoying the sunbeams on his fur.
You can even snorkel with really big sea turles.
