2 Days in Bayan Village
The island of Lombok is often forgotten, as it’s the neighbor island of the famous Bali. But actually, Lombok is said to be today, what Bali was 20 years ago. Having not even half the amount of tourists and even more stunning nature, Lombok is the perfect location for a getaway to explore the beautiful nature of Indonesia.
Lombok is a true hidden gem. The island is hiding stunning waterfalls, breathtaking rice fields, palm tree forests and it’s also the home of Indonesia’s second largest volcano, Mount Rinjani. Lombok is a natural wonder, where local people live deep in the jungle and have a different and beautiful way of living. We wish to give visitors the possibility of discovering the local culture of Lombok by visiting Bayan Village.
