Nusa Tenggara is well known for its beautiful beaches in Indonesia. You can easily find the beach with a black starchy sand or a white soft one. We would love to recommend Tanjung Aan Lombok and Tanjung Bloam for you to visit once you are here in West Nusa Tenggara, Lombok.
One of our friend who loves the beach very much sent us an awesome pictures he took during his visit to Karang Atas beach in North Lombok. The picture's theme is kids and the beach. He met a few kids bathing in the sea and playing on the sand. Well, we think that these pictures are awesome and worth seeing. How about the beach? Sure, we are gonna visit it later!
Enjoy these pictures!

One of the unique thing that can be found in Indonesia is a traditional market. It is everywhere, in each province, for sure we have many traditional markets in Nusa Tenggara. Nusa Tenggara is not only known for its natural beaches, like Tanjung Aan in Lombok or Gili Sunut in East Lombok, it also offers plenty of cultural events and traditional things to be enjoyed. One of those enjoyable experience when you visit Nusa Tenggara is exploring the traditional market.
Why traditional? There are some reasons for it to be called traditional:
1. Everything is fresh.
You can find anything such as vegetables, fishes, cakes, meals, etc. All of those stuffs are fresh from the oven. The vegetables are brought by the farmer from the garden, the fish are caught form the ocean.
2. Chance to bargain
When the seller mentions the price of things you want to buy, don't be deliberately agree with that. You have a chance to do bargaining! Ask them to sell the products in a cheaper price. You need to know first the standard price of the product so you won't pay higher than normal price.
3. Buy as much as you want
Since there is no packaging for the products, you can buy them as much as you need them. Pssttt, it can be so cheap!
4. See the people!
It is a perfect time for you to meet a lots of kind of people. Taking picture must be great idea!
Here are some cool pictures for you!

Have we ever told y' all that Lombok West Nusa Tenggara is a perfect island for those beachy guy?? Do you? Ahaa, for sure if you kinda love beach with its natural panorama and genuine people, just put Lombok on your travel destination list. You can also check our previous posts about another beaches can be found in Lombok, such as Tanjung Bloam in East Lombok or Tanjung Ringgit beautiful historical beach.
Now we come with another 'delicious' beach you could visit once you're here, namely Tanjung Aan. It's located in Central Lombok (Lombok Tengah). Though it's a bit far from Lombok's capital city but it's really worth to visit. Some foreigners even put Tanjung Aan beach as their fave beach in Lombok. Tanjung Aan is perfect beach to have some water activities, doing surfing, swimming or just lying on its white sand enjoying the warm sunset.
Well, we're looking forward to seeing you all!! :)

Gili Sunut is located in southern part of East Lombok. Approximately abbout 80 kms from main city, Mataram. To get to Gili Sunut , we don't go through paved roads but mostly trail. That's why sometimes it's not suggested to come here in rainy season, because it could be a slippery road. The trip will end up on a hill and we have to park the vehicle over this hill and then walk to the Gili Sunut. But of course we couldn't walk everytime we come there, it can only be done when the conditions of sea water is receding so the sand will be seen and can be passed. Usually the water is receding from morning until late afternoon.
Some people also come here for more than just enjoying the beautiful scenery. They come to stay over the Gili and sleep over at the house of local residents. Most residents work as fishermen. The people is so genuine and friendly, the other reason why some people love to visit this small island. We guess it will take a quit long time to promote this island to be well known as Gili Trawangan or Gili Nanggu. Opps, even one of our friend ever said Gili Sunut is the best small island he ever visited in Lombok. Enjoy the pictures!!

Let's talk about old site, we mean, weren't talking about beach, small island, or whatever like we've posted previously. We're gonna talk about 'NARMADA PARK' which is an old site from the legacy of the King of Mataram.
Now a days, Narmada is popular as park. Everyone is coming in weekend to enjoy the green scenery, sometimes swimming or just eating local culiner, like satay. But now, let's talk a bit about Narmada Park. Narmada is at about 10 kilometers from Mataram. It's located in Lembuak village in West Lombok. Area of the park is approximately two acres and was built by the King of Mataram Lombok, Anak Agung Gede Ngurah in 1727.
Anak Agung Gede Ngurah built Narmada as a place for Pakelem ceremony, held every full moon Caka in October-November. This park was built to resemble the beauty of Rinjani Mountain which is used as the resting place of the king. There are some parts in Narmada, the main gate, jabalkap, telaga kembar, gapura gelang, mukedes, telaga padmawangi, balai loji, balai terang, patandaan, bangunan sakapat, balai bancingah, Pura Kelasa and Pura Lingsar.
For tourists who visit Narnada, they would aim to wash their face in Balai petirtaan. It is said that spring water from Mount Rinjani and is the meeting place of three sources of water that is Suranadi, Lingsar and Narmada. Water present in Balaipetirtaan is believed to make people who drink and wash their face will stay young. When testing the efficacy of water in Balai petirtaan, the water in the room of 5x5 meters was pretty cool. In the room there is a local religious leaders of Hindu pray for those who come. Women who are menstruating are forbidden to enter the hall, because it supposedly can be violated if possessed. If you take a walk to the back of Narmada area, you can also find a long huge pipes lied on. It was part that left from the king legacy.
As with other attractions, Narmada Park also provides some modern rides like flying fox , swimming pool, green pool and of course culinary place.
