Hello all,

I am new to the forum and it will be my first time travelling (alone) to Lombok and Bali and I need your help and advice.

I have prepared an iteneray for my trip but I am not sure how feasible it is.

1. I will be arriving in Lombok from Singapore on the 3rd February around 6.30pm. I plan to proceed and to stay in Kuta (in Mimpi Manis of course :-) ) from the 3rd to the 4th. Are there any other cheap modes of transport around that time (aside from the airport taxi which will set me back Rp225,000) from the airport to Kuta?

2. On the 5th morning, I plan to go to Gili Air and stay one night there. I do not have any reservations yet. You may suggest a good budget hotel or homestay.

3. On the 6th, I plan to take the ferry from Lembar harbour to Bali. Do you know if there is a shuttle bus going to Ubud from the harbour? Ubud is where I plan to stay until I fly back to Singapore on the 8th.

I am open to modify the itenerary. Please suggest cheapest modes of transport and others , which you might think will be useful for a Lombok virgin.

Thank you Very Happy

It may be easier to start in Gilli A then go to Mimpi Manis and back to Lembar which will cut down on your travelling time.

Thanks for the suggestion. I was looking at the map and I think that would be a good idea. However, I will be arriving at 6.30pm in Mataram. Based on what I have read, there are no ferries/boats in Banglas that will travel to Gili A by that time. Would it be a good idea to stay in Senggigi overnight and take the morning boat to Gili A the next day?
Then that would mean I would be in Kuta by the 5th.

Thanks again.

Hi Iki and welcome to Lombok Lovers

I have answered a few of your questions by email.

Re getting from Padangbai in Bali to Ubud that should be no problem. There is a Perama shuttle office in the harbour and pretty much any time I have used Perama we went through their hub in Ubud so as long as you arrive there early enough you should be able to pick up a shuttle. You may even be able to prebook.

Looking forward to seeing you next month. sunny
