Students from China’s top School of Tourism Management, Zhuhai Campus at Sun Yat-sen University in Guangdong have just returned from a field study trip which included Singapore, Bali and Lombok.
The 19 students were led by Dr Fleur Fallon and Dr Zhao Ying. Dr Fallon has been to Lombok many times and, in 2002, completed her doctoral thesis on “Tourism Interrupted: the Challenge of Sustainability for Lombok Island 1987-2001” with the University of New England in Australia.
After another gas cylinder explosion at the local Mandalika markets, consumers are warned to check the expiry dates on LPG bottles before buying them.
This applies to the 15.3kg blue LPG cylinders commonly used in homes in Lombok. Expiry dates are stamped onto every cylinder and those that are already past their expiry date are not safe for resale and should be returned to the Pertamina depot. Always check the expiry date when exchanging gas cylinders at supermarkets and shops, or when accepting a delivery service.
Qunci Villas continues to push the envelope on dining experiences by bringing a taste of Spain to Lombok with their newly introduced “Paella Nights”.
This year the stylish resort on the beachfront in Mangsit introduced their theme of “Chefs in the Wild” by bringing in guest chefs from around the world to train their kitchen team in exciting and different cuisines.
