The Earthquake was on Lombok an Island half an hours flight away.
Where you are staying some people felt it some did not.
In the long run it is up to you wether you cancel. We will continue our holiday and feel completely safe.
There should be no problems at all, unless there is another major earthquake and tsunami. However, nobody can predict earthquakes. On local news they described yesterdays earthquake as the big one so hopefully there will only be minor aftershocks now. But actually we never know and only you can decide.
We're in the same boat, scheduled to travel to Bali on the 9th. All stories I read lump both islands effected together so it makes it hard to tell how severe the effects were on Bali specifically.
I'm wondering if Bali is pretty much fully functional and even if it is, is the situation in Lombok so extensive that the local focus in Bali is on helping neighboring Lombok.
We don't want to be the idiot tourists expecting to "vacation" during a serious emergency situation where resources like temporary shelter are needed for residents of Lombok
We are also flying out Saturday and feel slightly worried about risk. As I understand Gili Islands are being evacuated but Bali seems okay. Could anyone recommend an alternative to Gili? I think we are just going to take the chance and hope for the best. My friend is in Bali at the moment and he seems fairly calm about it all.
come on guys, I live in bali and is perfectly safe, zero problems...
Thank you for all your responses - they were very helpful.
My family and I will continue with our vacation as planned, and arrive in Bali on the 10th. From what I understand, Bali is extremely prone to earthquakes and the tsunami warning that was issued earlier as a precaution and has now been lifted.
