Know More about this tourYou will be picked up from your Senggigi or Mataram hotel (other regions available for pickup for an additional fee) around 7am-7:30am. Your guide and driver for the day will take you to your first stop of the day, the Kediri Traditional Market. This is one of the best places to see the locals going about their business - trade here has not changed in centuries so what you see here will be as it has been for generations. At the end of the market, you will hop on a 'cidomo', a horse-drawn carriage that is a popular means of travel to reach the nearby village.
Your cidomo will end at Banyumulek village, the center for pottery on Lombok. Skilled artists still use the ancient techniques in turning clay into daily household objects. From here, you will head to the weaving village of Sukarare where you can admire the creation of stunning, brightly-patterned songkets, ikat, and clothes for sarongs while your guide explains the various functions of each of the fabrics. Finally, you will see the village of Sade, one of the more unique places on the island that preserves the indigenous culture of the Sasak people.
From here, you will head to Kuta Beach, offering pristine white beaches lining the waters of the Lombok Strait. Lunch will be served here at a local restaurant where you can relax and admire the scenery. You will then take a trip to see the Mayura Water Palace. Close to 400 years old, this palace houses the King's former family temple and is proclaimed a holy pilgrimage site for the Hindus living on Lombok. After leaving the palace compound, you will be returned to your hotel around 4pm.
