West Nusa Tenggara is a province that located on the west side of Nusa Tenggara which has two biggest islands of Lombok and Sumbawa. The capital of this province is Mataram which located on Lombok Island.

    Lombok is noticeably different than its close neighbor, Bali. The northern part of the island is mountainous and lush with tall trees and shrubs. The South, on the other hand is arid and covered by savanna. Large Asian mammals are absent and replaced instead by marsupials, lizards, cockatoos and parrots.

    As tourism attractive, Lombok and some local island is the most island who usually visited by the tourist. Lombok is sometimes being identical sister with Bali, considering of the same atmosphere, the same exotic nature, the same wave and some other similarity. Unfortunately, Lombok is less famous than Bali instead of the diving destination which is located on Gili Trawangan.

    Soft, white sand, virgin beaches are typical in Lombok tourisms, where the motto is: "You can see Bali from Lombok, but not Lombok from Bali". Lombok is also famous for its ikat hand-woven textiles; the island has exceptional charm and itís relatively undiscovered.
