It was a good place to visit to understand about the local people and their way of life. It is not a built up place for tourists but the actual location of the village, and the people living there still. Very worth the visit.

I sew so I was very interested in seeing what they made. The quality is incredible and if you bargain, prices are good when you consider the hours of labor. The shop is full of items but there were other places throughout the village we did not have time to see as part of a day tour. I tried weaving... More

Sukarara Village is where you get to learn about the weaving tradition of the Sasak tribe and understand the significance of cloth weaving in their daily lives. The host was friendly and communicated well with us. You can participate in the weaving demonstration and wear their traditional attires... More

It was ok for me to walk around their village and try to do the weaving. Its beautiful, but unfortunately its too expensive for us. We had a budget to go to Lombok. So we did buy one of the small one, for 30 bucks instead of 250 bucks

If you want to visit a truly traditional village, skip Sade and come here! While it is not pretty like touristy Sade, Sukarara is a a REAL village where people live, work, play and die. Since our guide knew that my spouse and I enjoy learning about the culture and lives of the people in the places we visit around... More

This village are known as a place to producing sarung or songket clothes that the people use for some event or daily use nowadays. My kids have fun to learn and wearing lombok traditional clothes. The price are quite expensive because you can get more cheaper in other place around lombok island.
