Travel to Lombok in November

Hi everyone! Me and my girlfriend are about to embark on a 3 month backpacking trip around SEA during which we were planning on spending 2 weeks in Lombok. We are now unsure what to do due to the earthquake. It was a hotspot for us that we really wanted to do but we don’t want to be disrespectful if it’s dtill rebuilding or anything? Wanting some advise or if anyone is there can they shed a light on how bad it is?

Hiya,

Having been on Gili Islands at the time of the earthquake, and driven through the island two days later, the North of Lombok is no place for a vacation in the coming months.

However, we subsequently spent two nights in Kuta Lombok in the South which is structurally unaffected and had a lovely time and the locals would appreciate the money spent in the region. Just be aware that a tremor is possible at any time so it helps to know what to do in the event of another earthquake.

Hope this helps. Enjoy your trip
