Lombok (Indonesia)

   

You have to fly to Bali first. There are many international flights directly to Bali's airport Ngurah Rai near Denpasar. From here you continue either by local flight to Mataram or by ferry to Lombok (Padang Bai to Lembar). There are many direct speed boats to the Gili island, leaving from Padang Bai or Benoa.
