LEBARAN IN LOMBOK!

Over the next week, the whole island will be celebrating the end of Ramadan on 28 and 29 July. Idul Fitri, or Lebaran, is one of the most important times of the year in Indonesia… a time of celebration and reunions with families and friends.

The Indonesian government estimates that around 20 million people will be travelling across the archipelago over the next two weeks, returning home for the holidays. This will create a lot of congestion at airports and ports, but mostly on the roads, with an estimated 10 million people travelling by land! We hope that those who are making the journey for Lebaran reach home safely.
