Discover why Lombok is gaining popularity, whether it's for its rich culture or the
variety of attractions on both land and water.
Lombok was once known for the high quality of its traditional tapestry before it became a destination for travelers searching for tropical relaxation.
Most of Lombok's population originates in the Sasak people. The Sasaks have cultivated the island's land for centuries, respecting its relief and nature. Living traditionally in bamboo dwellings, they continue to practice spiritual rituals to honor nature and their ancestors. You may hear the chants and gamelan music that resonate in the surrounding area. The Sasak practice a religion close to Islam called Wektu Telu, incorporating animist traditions.
Over the centuries, Lombok's Balinese neighbors invaded the island numerous times. As a result, the island became part of the Karangasem kingdom. This era brought Hinduism and Balinese culture to the Sasak people, resulting in various customs and traditions. Today, we can still see temples and palaces from this period adorned with sculptures and architectural styles that reflect the influence of Bali in some parts of Lombok.
Lombok's unique location means its tropical climate guarantees warm temperatures all year round. This constant weather makes the island perfect for those seeking sun and beautiful beaches. In addition, Lombok's diverse landscape with Mount Rinjani offers opportunities for hikers and nature lovers. Lombok has something to offer everyone, whether you're looking for a getaway or a relaxing experience.
The Indonesian rupiah (IDR) drives Lombok's financial transactions. As you explore local markets, meet street vendors, or dine in upscale restaurants, you'll encounter this currency all over the island. While Indonesia uses Indonesian as its official language, encapsulating the nation's unity in diversity, the influx of international tourists has made English a common language in many parts of Lombok. From hotel staff to tour guides, many locals have adopted English, ensuring that visitors worldwide feel welcome and understood.
Lombok, to the east of Bali, is a jewel among the small Sunda Islands. This group of islands covers the southeastern part of Indonesia, and Lombok stands out as an aggregator of the region's magnificent cultures and landscapes.
Lombok's indigenous Sasak community forms the core of its identity. The Sasaks, who make up a majority of the island's population, have preserved customs that can still be observed today in their daily lives. Their traditional bamboo houses and colorful ceremonies bear witness to their traditions. With its Sasak characteristics, the practice of Islam can be felt in the island's mosques and the resounding calls to prayer that fill its landscapes.
