Safe to visit Bromo/Ijen/Surabaya after Lombok earthquake?

Supposed to visit Mt Bromo and Ijen Crater on 9 - 12 Aug 2018. Is it safe for us to visit though, since the earthquake just hit Lombok 2 days ago? Any information will be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

Yes it’s safe. East Java is a long way from Lombok.

How about Ijen? It is quite close to Lombok.

Hi,

Not really, there was no damage in north west Bali and Ijen is a lot further away.

Cheers
