I'm planning up a trip to Bali end of March 2008 but i read that Lombok is a much nicer island! My friends and I have bought air tickets to Bali but we thought if it is possible to squeeze in a Lombok trip within the travel as well.
Would anyone be kind to advise how should i book a trip to Lombok from Bali? Do i purchase a free and easy package from Bali? We love beautiful beaches, so which stretch of beach in Lombok should i book my hotel? Is it possible to ride a bike around the island or is it necessary to rent a car? Is there anything else I should look out for ?
Appreciate much and thanks in advance for all your advise and comments!
