route & costs lombok

Lombok is mostly known because of the three Gili islands. But next to that, is has some nice places to visit. It is more quiet than it's neighbor Bali and has some nice beaches. We made a map of our route so you can easily see which stops we made.

In Bali we took the fast boat to Gili Trawangan and spent 2 nights here. From Trawangan we went to Meno and after 2 nights we also visited Air where we spent 3 nights. The 3 Gili's are quite different but we loved all 3 of them. 


After the Gili's, we continued our Lombok trip to Senggigi. We rented a motorbike, and took off to Flores & Sumbawa for 15 days. On the way back to Senggigi, we spent some time in Kuta which has some nice beaches and is a nice place to spent some time. From Kuta, we drove back to Senggigi, where we took some time to relax before we started our big adventure: Rinjani! A 3 day full body workout which will leave some bruises and sore muscles and was for sure the hardest thing we ever did.


Transfer + Boat to Gili Trawangan 300.000 Rupiah p.p.


The Rinjani trekking was 1.200.000 Rupiah p.p. for 3 days. Considering we normally spent 300.000 Rupiah p.p. each day, the extra costs for Rinjani were only 300.000 Rupiah p.p.

average daily spendings

We spent 14 days on the island Lombok. We spent quite some time relaxing at the 3 Gili's, and to prepare for Rinjani so it easily be done in about 10 days.


In the 14 days we were in Lombok, our average daily spendings come down to 318.722 Rupiah p.p. Keep in mind that traveling with someone else can be cheaper because you can share a room. Unless you don't mind sleeping in dorms, than it even can be cheaper to travel alone.


Within this budget we integrate all costs such as ATM costs. Only the above mentioned extra costs were not taken in to account in the budget.


How did we spent our money? We usually sleep in rooms/bungalows with our own bathroom, but not always with airconditioning. We eat both in restaurants as on the street. We use the public transport, rent a motorbike if possible to visit the highlights instead of going on tours and we walk more often instead of taking a taxi or bejac. 


Hopefully our information is useful to future Lombok travelers. If you have any questions, don't hesitate and let us know!
