help needed

Hi all

Ok so I need some info I did find someone here butit wa svery old so I wanted to get some upto date advice!

We are going ot fly to lombok as I get really bad on boats and have heard lots of horror stories, but from what I can make out flying is the best bet then its a taxi transfer to the harbour to then get a boat to the islands

1) how long is the transfer airport to the harbour

2) what is the rough cost

3) how much is the speedboat and what is the transfer time on that

4) is the boat ok going from that direction?

Airport to Bangsal is approx 2 hours. Approx cost is Rp300,000.

Once at Bangsal no need for a speedboat. (also they go from Teluk Kodek & Teluk Nare harbours)

Public boat will cost less than Rp20,000 and take about 30 minutes depending on which island you are going to. Boats leave when full so better to get to the harbour about 10/11am.

Don't worry, it is very easy !

From Lombok (Praya) to Bangsal harbour : taxi 1H45, 300 000 RPH max

Bangsal harbour to Gili : 20 minutes with slow boat ferry public 15 000 RPH/person

Go to your hotel in cidomo (horse) or walk :)

We did an article on our blog on the route Lombok - Gili lvenvoyage.com/gili-trawangan-nous-voila/

It's a french website but you can translate it.

Enjoy !
