Is Lombok the next Bali? As the tropical monsoon clouds roll in, obscuring the towering volcanos along the Bali coastline, the pristine neighboring island of Lombok seems a world away from Indonesia's premier tourist destination. In fact, it almost is.

A handful of tickets, 6 Quite a lot back in time, about two-and-a-half to three years already, but when I found these bills again there were certain memories returning to my mind. It's time once more to write down some of them here on this virtual paper, so I can reduce my current heap of entrance- and parking tickets and other useless prove of payment. I always keep all of them, just in case. But there is never a just in case until I find them again, like today.

Anarchy reigns in West Lombok Back to Lombok after almost two years - my last visit to this beautiful and quiet island east of the messy Bali dates back to January 2005 - I noticed that certain things had changed, and too bad not only for the good of the island. It has nothing to do with increased tourist numbers to the island or the fact that big positive points are to be awarded.

Lagging behind with writing stories, Iím now making an effort to jump another two more days in time, but as usual, it will be hard for me to catch up writing the stories until today. I will to my best for now, but there is so much to do. Too bad I will go to Jakarta tomorrow in the afternoon, nevertheless I will most likely write a story there as well.

"Oh, you have to visit Lombok, it's very different from other islands in Indonesia, and Bali. It's much more quiet and the people are more friendly." That was what I was told when I told people there was a small chance I would go to Lombok. A very definate 'must see' island.

Lombok is the perfect alternative to its more crowded and busier neighbor, Bali. When you visit Lombok island, you will see a mixture of the cultures of Bali and Lombok, but if you visit only Bali island you certainly cannot view the culture of Lombok. Home to Sasak people, who migrated to Lombok from East Java as the Hindu Majapahit Empire fell at the end of the 14th century, the island is rich in natural and cultural treasures, which have not yet been exploited for tourism.
