Lombok Earthquake - Is Seminyak Safe?

Hi everyone

First of all, hope everyone is ok post earthquake!

Second of all, we fly out to Seminyak on Thursday next week (16th of August) and are a little worried about the situation.

Is Seminyak safe to travel?

Thank you

Well, so far it is, it seems the earthquake was felt all over Bali but there is very little in the way of injuries and no tsunamis are expected. Who knows what will happen between now and 16 August??

I arrive on Thursday in Seminyak, from what I have read on here it all seems fine and business is as usual. Of course the 16th is more than a week away, so anything can happen between now and then, but that is the risk you take visiting the region. From the recent EQ though Seminyak and Bali both seem OK.

I landed today and we’re staying in Seminyak. If I didn’t read the news, I’d have had no idea anything even happened in Bali. The airport was fine.
