TENUN DESA SUKARARA LOMBOK TENGAH

Sukarara merupakan daerah kerajinan tenun ikat yang sudah dikenal oleh masarakat Lombok yang saat ini sudah berkembang pesat menjadi home industri setelah banyak dikunjungi oleh wisatawan domestik maupun wisatawan manca negara, desa Sukarara kecamatan Jonggat, kabupaten Lombok Tengah saat ini sudah berubah wajah dari keadaan sebelumnya semenjak saat belum dikenal oleh wisatawan, untuk menuju desa Sukarara dari Mataram anda harus menggunakan jalur jalan utama menuju kota Praya  kira-kira 7 km sebelum mencapai kota Praya ada tanda arah yang bertuliskan SUKARARA berbelok ke arah kanan melalui jalan aspal yang tidak begitu lebar dulu tapi sekarang jalan ini sudah diberi pekerasan dengan jenis aspal yang bagus dan penambahan pelebaran dan bahu jalan patokannya ada masjid besar di pojok pertigaan kira kira masuk 500 meter nah di sinilah anda akan melihat wajah Sukarara yang sudah berbeda, yang saya maksudkan  sepanjang jalan kira-kira 2 km ke arah selatan terdapat art shop yang dengan transparan menonjolkan hasil-hasil tenunan.

Suara-suara ciri khas desa ini yaitu suara “Belide” semacam benda berbentuk pedang dari kayu yang digunakan sebagai alat untuk merapatkan benang saat menenun “tak taktak taktak” sepanjang desa ini akan sangat mendominasi dari pada suara-suara lainnya ada beberapa karyawan yang masih gadis, setengah baya dan tua di depan toko mendemonstrasikan proses cara pembuatan tenun ikat di setiap teras art shop masing-masing yang memiliki papan nama toko yang kita lihat art shop ini berfariasi ukuran tokonya ada art shop yang besar, sedang dan ada yang kecil, silahkan anda mau berhenti dimana begitu anda sudah menentukan pilihan tempat parkir di depan toko seorang karyawan toko akan menyambut anda dengan senyuman seraya membukakan anda pintu mobil kemudian mengucapkan salam selamat datang.

Guide lokal akan mempersilahkan anda masuk untuk melihat desain-desain serta warna-warna paforit yang anda sukai, setelah melihat-lihat penjaga toko akan mengajak anda ke depan toko untuk melihat demonstasi cara proses menenun bila anda hendak ingin mencoba merasakan proses menenun anda bisa minta untuk mencobanya dan akan ajarkan cara-caranya, setelah merasakan cara proses pembuatan anda juga bisa tanyakan dari bahan benang apa yang digunakan untuk menenun dan bahan-bahan dasar pewarna apa yang digunakan untuk mewarnainya, biasanya setiap pengunjung yang datang dan kelihatan ingin tahu persis tentang tenun ikat penjaga toko biasanya akan mengajak anda untuk berkeliling kedalam kampung yang berada di belakang toko untuk melihat lihat penduduk desa Sukarara yang sedang menjalani aktifitas menenun karena menenun di desa Sukarara merupakan mata pencaharian penduduk setempat.

Di saat senggang selain menenun penduduk juga merupakan petani dan buruh tani  keunikan di desa Sukarara semua kaum wanita sepertinya wajib untuk bisa menenun karena terbatasnya sumber mata pencaharian untuk membantu ekonomi keluarga karena di Lombok tidak ada pabrik industri seperti yang ada banyak di pulau Jawa bahkan gadis-gadis di Sukarare tidak diperkenankan menikah oleh aturan awik-awik desa jika belum bisa menenun  karena ini merupakan awik-awik desa yang tidak boleh dilanggar dengan alasan jika tidak bisa menenun mau kasi makan apa nanti anak-anak mu, yah kata-kata ini yang sering saya dengar. Setelah berkembangnya pariwisata di Lombok semakin banyak Touris asing maupun wisatawan domestik yang membeli hasil karya tangan dan sangat membuka peluang penghasilan masyarakat Sukarara selain dari hasil bertani tapi malah sebaliknya sekarang wanita-wanita di  desa Sukarare menganggap pekerjaan menenun menjadi pekerjaan pokok daripada bertani di sawah.

Kain tenun tidak bisa dibandingkan dengan kain biasa, kain tenun merupakan produk mahal yang proses pembuatannya sangat teliti dan membutuhkan waktu lama dengan corak-corak yang sangat khas yang dipintal dengan diberi warna dari bahan alam terutama warna-warna gelap untuk warna coklat kemerahan menggunakan serat pohon mahoni, batang jati untuk coklat muda, biji asam untuk warna coklat tanah dan batang pisang busuk untuk warna coklat tua selain itu bahan anggur campuran kulit manggis untuk warna ungu  sedangkan warna merah muda, kuning, hijau dan biru yang merupakan bahan bahan yang sulit di peroleh dari pewarna alam pengerajin memperolehnya dari bahan kimia yang dibeli dari toko untuk proses pembuatan bisa juga anda meminta untuk mencobanya di sini, yah sekedar untuk berfose ambil gambar buat diposting di facebook selain itu anda juga bisa meminta untuk mengenakan baju ala orang Lombok atau berdandan ala pengantin Lombok yang berbahan kain tenun dan ambil foto di belakang rumah panggung yang berbentuk lumbung padi seperti icon daerah lombok yang anda kenal, nah tentu dengan foto-foto ini anda bisa mengenang kunjungan anda ke desa Sukarara.

SNORKELING TRIP IN GILI TRAWANGAN

Snorkeling is a beach or marine park tourism activity that is quite fun by using simple tools such as “Mask” or google like glasses for water that covers most of the face including the nose so that it does not enter water, with this object you can literate in a drowned head in the water, “Snorkel” is a breathing tube connected through the mouth up (air) on the snorkel there is a kind of grip in the mouth by being bitten so that it is not easily released from the mouth, you can also dip it into the water to the end of the hose Connecting to the air entering the water while holding the breath to dive to a depth of several meters depends on how long you can hold your breath.

For the purpose of getting closer to the object in the snorkeling spot, after that when you connect it back into the air, the water that enters the snorkel hose can be blown until the water that comes in is blown out without having to remove the snorkel from the mouth to remove water in it but this can done for people who are used to snorkeling. Now these two things are the most important in doing snorkeling activities, while other additional tools such as “fin” or more easily understood are referred to as feet-frogs because when people use it looks like a frog with a long leg shape with a wide foot fin shape easy pedaling, this tool is additional so that when snorkeling is faster to do movements in all directions: left, right, front and bottom, but that is for people who are used to using this tool, if not used this tool will only make it difficult even sometimes resulting in legs becoming cramps.

In doing snorkeling activities, it is very supportive for those who have often snorkeled and there are even some participants who are very disappointed if they do not get fin facilities or are disappointed to not be able to rent fin because for snorkeling sharing on Gili Trawangan fin does not include the facilities provided on the boat and to get it you can rent with a rental price of between Rp 10,000 – Rp 20,000 per pair, the price depends on the condition because fin also consists of various classes with various brands, shapes and prices that adjust the qualit“Lift jacket” or called liftvest, this is very needed for participants who cannot swim or are not good at swimming but snorkeling using a life jacket you will not be able to maneuver like going into the depths with the intention of wanting to get closer to the fish or want to be close when you see a turtle that is more blank on the reef, see the marine park and the fish contained in it, using a life jacket it looks like the fin doesn’t need to be used because the benefits are not maximal.

Snorkeling is a very cheap alternative when compared to diving activities because the tools used for diving are very expensive and use more prepared tools such as wetsuit, oxygen canisters and other knick knacks, participants must have a license to be able to do fun dive besides All equipment in general is outside production. For one diving, it only lasts 45 minutes for one spot and costs more than US $ 35 / person or one dive + Rp 50,000 for coral reef conservation costs managed by the foundation, “Gili Echo Trust” developed by Caucasians, Caucasians, instructors diver on Gili Trawangan, but also needs to be recognized that diving provides a sensation that is much different than snorkeling

For those who have never snorkeled, I suggest you try it, the theory is very easy, on the boat, please ask to be taught how to use the right tool to guide the snorkel on the boat before splashing into the water, but wait for the other participants to come down to the water to snorkel. The most important thing to take into account is that there are things that we never expected, namely: If people are not familiar with this trip, they will experience seasickness with an indication that the head feels dizzy, cold sweat and will end up vomiting, removing all stomach contents, but there is some people also can stand without feeling this complaint.

Targeting people who will experience vomiting or seasickness is usually for those who are trying to be on a boat without going to snorkeling, another thing that needs to be avoided when snorkeling is not to get sea water into the nasal cavity or mouth especially until it can swallow it in. into the throat, this will usually make the head feel dizzy and will lead to seasickness, this will trigger our mind to immediately edge to stay away from the boat but what if we take part in trip sharing or public snorkeling because the participants consist of around 50 people , it is very unlikely that just because a few people feel dizzy or get seasick then we can ask the snorkel guide to steer the boat aside, but if our boat status is leased, private or chartered certainly no party will object.

The choice of snorkeling in this way is common in Gili Trawangan, only by paying a ticket worth Rp 100,000 / person without a reservation, surely you have got a seat on the boat with full boat capacity, there is no limit as long as the boat is considered able to accommodate participants, but the minimum limit is determined approximately under 10 participants but don’t be afraid, that doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to do snorkeling at that time. Usually participants who are less passengers will be shared with other places or to other snorkeling services, unless there are certain times to watch out for during the visiting season, especially during the Christmas and New Year holidays, in Gili Trawangan especially on the east coast of the island will change like sea ​​of ​​human.

Of course, times like this if I really intend to snorkel, I suggest that you immediately reserve in advance or at least one day before, participants have prepared the equipment on the glass bottom boat or boat trip specifically for snorkeling facilities below. there is a glass to see fish or marine park from the boat as you can see in the picture above, this is for those who do not want to go down to snorkel, from this glass the participants can see the situation under the boat trip, but it is certainly far more exciting if participants can go down to the water to snorkel because seeing from the glass on the boat is not much better like watching from a television screen.

 

 

Tools prepared on the boat: Google, Snorkel, Life jacket for those who are less swimmer and bottled water bottles of 600 ml of mineral water, for fin or foot-frogs are not included in the package price of Rp 100,000 / person, you must rent a range of Rp 10,000 – IDR 20,000 per pair depending on conditions. This trip departure schedule starts at 10.30 am until 03.00 pm but must check in first 30 minutes before departure, this trip will visit spots on Gili Meno and spot on Gili Air there is a stop for lunch approximately 1 hour or even more long if the season is visiting because the restourant will be flooded with orders but lunch pay for itself at the beachside restaurant or can also take food on the boat because the food is quite expensive as well as the range of Rp 50,000 to Rp 60,000 for class me goreng and gado-gado.

 

Before leaving for snorkeling, it is advisable to bring bread which is used or which is expired to feed the fish or bread to be used for eating fish when snorkeling, which is definitely cool when you sprinkle bread in front of you then the fish will come grabbing in peace – Even if our bread and our bread is slightly visible in the fist, the fish that are starving will head your hand to grab the bread in the fist, which is certainly not the big fish, the range of the palm, especially this you can do it on the spot located on Gili Air. About 30 minutes before 3 o’clock the snorkeling guide will take us on a boat to get back to Gili Trawangan. If your arrival consists of a large group, I suggest long ago to reserve this trip so we try your group to be on the same boat or if your group consists of 30 people you can pay this trip 100,000 / person but can use a special boat and choosing a departure time is more flexible without having to be affected by other participants as well as if the boat is sharing.

This alternative snorkeling is the same as “public snorkeling” only the departure time only from 01:00 am – 05:00 pm and the price is more expensive Rp 150,000 / person and if less than 15 participants are canceled, the advantage of alternative snorkeling is usually not too huddled on the Trip boat, can avoid the crowds of the public group snorkeling at snorkeling spots because the snorkeling spot is just a location, not all beaches are good snorkeling places and before snorkeling you can have lunch before the trip starts and there is time to find a lunch location according to your will. Why do I say alternatives? Well this is indeed an alternative schedule because there are several reasons and the reasons for this are because:

  1. Very often tourists come to Gili Trawangan by using fast boats from Bali directly to the port of Gili Trawangan but unfortunately they cannot follow the schedule of “Public Snorkeling” because the speed boat arrival schedule from Bali is the earliest around 10:30 am while at that time it is the scheduled Public departure Snorkeling was not a chance to snorkel on the day of arrival while the agenda was to stay at Gili Trawangan only overnight and tomorrow morning to check out the hotel at 11:00 am.

 

  1. Often tourists who stay in Senggigi, Mataram, Kuta Lombok or from other places arrive late to arrive on Gili Trawangan for various reasons, especially those who are most often due to wake up late so that the plan that should arrive on Gili Trawangan at 10:00 am actually arrives at 11:00 am and finally left behind to follow the Public Snorkeling schedule.

 

  1. Sometimes there are other causes, tourists who had already calculated the time to arrive on Gili Trawangan at 10:00 am turned out to be stuck in traffic due to many kinds of causes that were never expected and eventually lost time on the road, and most often if tourists came by using Public Boat crossing transportation because it is too long to queue to wait for a full boat

 

 

  1. An alternative way to still be able to take part in the Public Snorkeling so that you don’t pay more is Rp. 150,000 when you check out at a lodging or hotel where you stay, you should be able to make sure that the luggage is left in the hotel office if allowed or can leave luggage where you buy a Snorkeling trip ticket

 

Snorkeling Small Group

 

 

Snorkeling Small Group participants can be controlled by guides

Snorkeling with this small group is intended for participants who are less happy with too many people on the boat and also at snorkeling spots there are snorkeling boats crowded with passengers meeting other groups in the same place at the same time so that the number of people who snorkel almost become thousands people especially during high season or visiting season if you do not like this situation you can use alternative snorkeling with a small group with a smaller boat and the participants are limited in capacity to a maximum of 10 people and a minimum of 4 participants on a boat trip.

 

 

It appears that the Lucky Trip boat is the largest with a capacity of hundreds of participants

Participants will be charged Rp. 250,000 / person or the price will be Rp. 150,000 / person if the participant of more than 15 people apart from the group is a little too, the departure time is changed earlier at 08.30 am or the second trip you can do at 01.00 pm because in general the departure time to snorkel on Gili Trawangan from the north to the south end at 10.30 am you can imagine a boat with an average capacity of 40 participants and up to 60 participants even from one of the “Lucky Trip” snorkeling services having a basic boat with a capacity of up to 125 participants. If multiplied by the number of boats departing from other snorkeling services, approximately 17 boats, almost thousands of people snorkeling from Gili Trawangan.

 

At the same time, it is divided into several spots, not including those who snorkel from Gili Meno and Gili Air, and those who snorkel on the beach without using a boat trip are sure that the peak season will be 2 thousands more people who will be snorkeling at the same time, inspired from Caucasians and Caucasians who complain, he said when they were snorkeling they saw more people than seeing fish. “We are not seeing fish but every where we see people,” he said, because not all beaches are good for snorkeling. the only place that innovates the departure schedule and the small number of participants that is where I recommend on the “Sea Star Tour” which is located in front of the art market or when the night will turn into a Food Market on the beach, there we give the name ” Special Snorkeling is more complete equipment including fin and bread to eat fish.

 

In this case the boatman will control the boat and you will control the boatman, which means that all your requests will be heard more than the large number of participants, including you can ask to be moved aside or even down to go up to the other island if you want to walk walk 15 minutes on Gili Meno or on Gili Air, also include being able to choose restouran where to stop for lunch or just shop for snacks or soft drinks, the guide also more intentionally guides you but another thing if the participants have more than 15 people all that can carried out by mutual agreement.

 

Snorkeling Charter Boat

 

 

Boat Charter for capacity above 12 participants

Boat charters are another alternative if you come to Gili with a group or just want to snorkel privately but for this reason you have to book the most late one day before because considering the existence of a boat trip like this is very limited in Gili Trawangan when measured by the number of tourists coming visiting Gili Trawangan, boat charter includes boat, guide, snorkeling equipment and most definitely the most must have jacket lift because this is an appeal from the relevant apparatus for each boat to be facilitated with jacket lifts or life jackets for safety. The boats that appear on the side that we usually use for charter if more than 10 participants because the upper deck can also be used for passengers sitting on it and it seems more fun to enjoy the open atmosphere while selfy or take pictures with your friends, if you want less than 10 of us prepared another boat of the same size but no upper deck as shown in the picture

 

The duration for a 4 hour snorkeling boat charter can also be reduced in duration but the price can be reduced by just a little and also the duration can increase how much negotiable price must be added but for a 4 hour duration in my opinion is enough, there are 2 types of charter boats namely: Glass bottom boat (the glass is below to see fish from the boat) and the normal boat is the normal boat with no glass underneath. Please choose according to taste but what is normal is that the boat is cheaper, less than 15% of the glass price. bottom boat.

 

 

Gili Bahari Boat with a capacity of 60 participants

For some people using glass bottom boats is considered not too important, especially for Caucasians, Caucasians who are generally good at swimming, because it is far better and more cool to dive into the water than looking from a boat through a glass, it is only possible if there is a small child in groups or maybe there are mothers who are lazy to take off their robe dresses or there are participants who cannot swim even though a life jacket has been prepared or there may be participants who do not have changing clothes or there are lazy participants who are wet, who are sure to go down using snorkeling equipment far better sensation because you can directly blend with fish in the water.

 

The boats in Gili Trawangan mostly use wood and there are some who use Viber material, for the price of the boat charter is very flexible depending on the season of visit and certainly depends on the number of participants who participate because separately snorkeling equipment is rented elsewhere if the supply is insufficient . The rental price is analyzed at Rp 900,000 / 2 people and for each additional number of participants Rp 100,000 / person and has been prepared on board equipment: Mask, Snorkel, Fin, Jacket life jacket and guide will lead this trip. For the visiting season we will increase the price by 10% given the many requests except for public snorkeling prices of 100,000 / person but the service conditions cannot be maximized because the participants are too many and a little difficult to control and at risk of not being able to take the trip because during the visit season it cannot be accommodated and must be aggressive on board the boat before it is declared full.

 

Snorkeling Equipment Rental

 

If you want to snorkel only just rent snorkeling equipment on Gili Trawangan you can get it very easily, along the coast on Gili Trawanagan especially the east coast you can see directly the equipment openly hanging on the top of a place that resembles a rag because in the stomach Rombong is a storage place for snorkeling equipment after being washed or after being returned by the tenants, cleaned with Sun light or Mama Lemon soap. The rental price for a set consisting of Mask, snorkel and fin is around IDR 30,000 – IDR 50,000 depending on conditions.

 

 

Location of the place where the snorkelers are at the beachside of Gili Trawangan

If the visiting season of any price on Gili Trawangan will increase very drastically, including snorkeling equipment, the price is determined at will, meaning that the previous IDR 30,000 / set will be offered to IDR 50,000 / set, it is already business law if the demand is more than the inventory, the price can change , how about the normal jacket lift or life jacket around Rp. 15,000 – Rp. 20,000 for one time use the rental price is not calculated based on how long we use it.

 

OK, before renting snorkeling equipment you should first ask the local people or people who know where the snorkeling locations are good because in Gili Trawangan not all beaches are good snorkeling places, as far as I know in front of the Villa Ombak hotel a little to the south is very good for snorkeling locations or on the north side of Gili Trawangan there are large coral reefs such as an average 1 cubic cubicle which is inhabited by a type of Gropper or a type of fish that is quite large but no ornamental corals appear here .

 

 

The newest snorkeling spot in the western part of Gili Meno

For that reason, if renting equipment must also be measured to what extent you have to carry from the location of the rent to the location of snorkeling if not so you have to rent a bicycle and rent snorkeling equipment like Caucasians, if they feel that the snorkeling location is not good they can moving to a location farther away according to people’s recommendations and what is certain when parking a bicycle must be converged so that the comfort of the snorkel is not to think about what the bike will bring or not because it often happens on Gili Trawangan.

 

NOTE: For all use of snorkeling equipment must be accounted for if it occurs lost or released while snorkeling especially fin, mask and snorkel. If this happens, immediately report to the snorkel guide so that it can be taken, if it cannot be taken because it falls at a depth that is difficult to reach, then the participant must compensate for the falling instrument by 75% of the price in the shop.

 

ECHO TOURIST GILI TRAWANGAN

Talking about tourism, one of the most popular tourist attractions today in the Lombok region is Gili Trawangan, an island located in the northwest of the island of Lombok, this place consists of 3 small islands called gili by local locals or the term for Lombok people to call for the small island, called gili, consists of three dyke which are located in a row, including: the closest Gili from the mainland, Gili Air, then the smallest Gili Meno whose position is on the slit and the last is Gili Trawangan.

The sun rises behind Mount Rinjani from Gili Trawangan

Gili is the farthest and the largest of its land, among the three Gili that is most visited by tourists is Gili Trawangan, the largest of its land is between the three Gili, the area of ​​Gili Trawangan is approximately 360 km2 and the circumference is 8 km, then Gili Air and the smallest Gili Meno. Gili Trawangan is protected from vehicle pollution because only bicycles and Cidomo can operate here, nor will you find pet dogs or stray dogs but what seems to be that many cats roam and breed have been prevented by being castrated by foreign NGOs which are very instrumental in maintaining and preserving Gili Trawangan, Gili Eco Trust, funded by donors involved in the diving business.

Cidomo public transportation on Gili Trawangan

If you want to walk around the Gili Trawangan, it will take about 2 hours and if cycling is around 45 minutes, the length of the Gili Trawangan 8 km activity centers on the eastern part of the island, boats operating in Bangsal are very regular for the lane to Gili Trawangan while boats operated to Gili Meno and Gili Air are very rare even for people who want to cross to Gili Meno can wait for a full boat up to 2 hours but specifically Gili Meno there is a shuttle boat at 14:00 and 16:00 with price of Rp 25,000 / person.

Coastal beaches in Gili Trawangan are dominated by hotel buildings, especially the east coast which is the center of activity and crowds, on the west coast is still a beach that has no buildings yet only a few large hotels like Exile, 5 Element, Ombak Sunset, Aston Sunset , Le Pirate, Vila Julius and there are a number of villas that are still under construction. To transport on Gili Trawangan can only use Cidomo or Andong  (in Java) the passenger capacity is limited to one Cidomo not more than 3 adults and is not permitted to use motorized vehicles, to order Cidomo is a bit complicated, you may not be stopped on the road but all has been set by the operator via radio orari.

Fast boat port on Gili Trawangan

Gili Trawangan is the only one among the 3 Gili that has a hill and is fixed by two telecommunication transmissions of Telkomsel and XL, there is a solar power plant that is managed by PLN to petrify the power plant located on the north end of Gili Trawangan island besides every hotel especially star hotels has the power of a power plant from a generator engine to anticipate electricity from PLN to die. In the central part of Gili Trawangan Island there are still many coconut and sweet potato gardens.

Currently Gili Trawangan is very popular to be visited by domestic and foreign tourists, Gili Trawangan is the second destination in Asia after the Pataya beach in Thailand, the Gili people who used to live in poverty after the impact of economic tourist arrivals, the indigenous people of the Gili are increasing drastically many Gili people already have bungalows, restaurants, restaurants, bars, especially ownership of boat trips like glass bottom boat is very monopolized by not allowing outsiders to have such boats, the organization of Karang Taruna (Young Boy Association) plays a role in making awik-awik and making activities to hold musical performances, dance performances, Joget dances and others.

Regular Fast boat from Bali

Don’t forget if you want to visit Gili Trawangan, make sure your arrival date is very important because in Gili Trawangan there is a high season, the season is quiet or balanced. If your arrival in the high season will be very difficult to find a place to stay and certainly the price of lodging will be doubled between two and three times, if you come to use the private transportation of the vehicle you can leave at the port of Bangsal which is 30 m – 50 m from the beach.

I suggested that I drive the vehicle in the parking lot in “OJOLALI” the name of the owner of the place Pak Sahar, his wife, a Javanese and Pak Sahar, a native ward (Ojo Lali, stop by) sea ​​water which can cause rust on your vehicle later, with a tariff of around Rp 10,000 / day for motorbikes and Rp 25,000 / day for four-wheeled vehicles and tickets for crossing to three Gili can only be purchased at the Karya Bahari cooperative counter for Rp 15,000 / person Be careful not to buy on the road, it can be fake or you will be given a much more expensive price because this often happens, because around the port, many brokers aren’t clear.

Anything in Gili Trawangan prices must be expensive because it can be 2 times the price you have to buy in Lombok because for the operational costs of every business on Gili Trawangan is very expensive because the items that will be brought to Gili need a porter, need transport, have to pay more expensive employees even For places where rental is very expensive, especially if you buy it in a hotel or star-rated restaurant, you have to prepare a large budget, so it is not wrong if you say Gili Trawangan is a place for people to waste money, any ATM is already built except the BCA ATM that has not been seen yet. worry you can still withdraw cash at the Common Wealth ATM which is located close to the public port ticket counter but the condition of all ATMs on Gili Trawangan is often empty because the intensity of people withdrawing cash very often, especially foreign tourists often make large amounts of cash withdrawals for various kinds of needs, especially for trip payments and room payment for each hotel that does not accept payment with a transfer system.

The situation when controlling illegal buildings in Trawangan in early 2017

What is often in the spotlight on Gili Trawangan today is a waste problem whose accumulation is at the threshold so that the TPA (Final Disposal Site) is very mountainous located in the center of the island which has always been the topic of discussion among community leaders who join hands with foreign NGOs Gili Eco Trust to guard the development of Gili Trawangan and also discuss the future of Gili Trawangan. For this reason, there are officers who are very swift in carrying garbage – garbage that has been stacked in front of hotel corners to bring to the landfill using horse drawn carts and for this activity is funded from fees that are adjusted to the size of the business each months there are those who come to collect fees by providing receipts of proof of payment of garbage contributions.

Water problems have also become a problem in Gili Trawangan because groundwater has been polluted by so many “septic tanks” that are embedded in the soil until in certain seasons this ground water when used for bathing water has caused odors in the water so many people now use water distillation from sea water for bathing, which every month has to pay dearly to the business manager, like the PDAM water that we use in the city and almost all hotels, especially big hotels, use the services of distilled water for bathing water in the hotel as well as for irrigating hotel pools.

Recently, more and more problems have emerged on Gili Trawangan, but the most important and the most transparent is the problem of illegal development on the coast, of course this is like a time bomb if this is not immediately handled, Gili Trawangan will be abandoned little by tourists because it is not beautiful again, therefore from the results of the many coordination meetings between the North Lombok district government (KLU) and prominent figures and entrepreneurs in Gili Trawangan who issued a decision that every building located on the beach must be demolished so as not to disturb the aesthetics of beauty beach, in the end the execution carried out in March 2017 is still not optimally arranged, but now there are no constructing buildings on the beach, except there are still restaurant chairs and tables that are considered valid according to the agreement.

Culinary at the Food Market in front of the Trawangan Gili Pier

Culinary problems have many choices, ranging from rice packets to food menus in hotels or restaurants which are star-rated, rice packets you can still get at a price of Rp 10,000 to Rp 15,000. There are vendors walking around selling on the main beach road. , then there are many food stalls scattered at a slightly more expensive price but you can sit in the Warung

There are also stalls that are a little more classy, ​​so you have to be Rp 25,000 in comparison to the price of rice wrap, there is also a food market that is open only at night which is located in the art market area near the harbor, the price ranges from Rp more if you order grilled fish in front of the stall while still on ice cubes, there are also restaurants that have medium budget for a standard price of Rp 60,000, there are also snacks which can be seen from the menu, up to Rp 250,000 for one portion, even up to millions if you order lobster.

The role of the security problem in Gili Trawangan is “island security” or the security guard of Gili Trawangan island which looks a bit more executive than the security guard in general because they dress like the presidential guard, well that’s my judgment because there are no symbol symbols attached to their uniforms and use shoes like office shoes. The security guard on Gili Trawangan has an office right next to the ticket window of the public ferry port to Bangsal under pine trees.

Demolition of illegal buildings on Gili Trawangan

One time you have a security problem, you can go to his office to ask for help, it happens that my chairman knows Mr. Panjano, but among his friends, he is more often called “Long Pak”. He is very influential before his men. Security issues on Gili Trawangan are already conducive even though they have existed but have never arrived at a murder incident.

The most common problem is the theft of small items at the level between employees – employees who work in hotels or bungalows caught in action on CCTV footage, even very many are caught doing criminal thefts among foreign tourists (Caucasians) who steal handicrafts in an art shop, steal restourant guest bags when eating their meals, steal boutique display items and many others.

Not infrequently many foreign tourists act criminals

If they have been caught by these security guards, the perpetrators must be ready to be shaved and paraded around the island with their bare chest and will be hung up according to their actions like “MY THIEVES” or if foreigners “I TEFT A BAG” and will be a spectacle of the Gili people Trawangan, this is done before being processed by the police but if this crime cannot proceed to the police level because it is classified as a minor criminal the perpetrator will be given a penalty for not being allowed to enter Gili Trawangan for a period of 3 years. Besides that, the duty of the island’s security guards in each party turn event in each pub must be under his supervision to maintain the commotion that will threaten the tranquility of other tourists visiting Gili Trawanagan.

Besides narcotics problems are also often heard buzzing on Gili Trawangan because many dealers assume that Gili Trawangan is a safe place to transact drugs and consider addicts very easy to get money to buy it.

Maybe all of that is true, but make no mistake because in Gili Trawangan there are also a lot of undercover intelpolis trailing dealers so they have to be caught red-handed while doing drug-buying transactions, many of the perpetrators have been caught until there are also some who have been freed after serving imprisonment.

For those of you who want to visit Gili Trawangan you should stay away from things like that, why do I say that because there are some visitors who have asked me directly where to buy marijuana? Wow, this person is really easy to say without any fear or worry or maybe because they consider Gili Trawangan is a free place to conduct drug transactions.

SUKARARA CENTRAL LOMBOK WEAVING VILLAGE

Sukarara is a weaving craft area that has been known by the people of Lombok, which has now developed rapidly into a home industry after being visited by many domestic and foreign tourists, the village of Sukarara in Jonggat district, Central Lombok district has changed its face from the previous situation since not yet known by tourists.

How to go to Sukarara village, from Mataram you have to use the main road to the city of Praya about 7 km before reaching the city of Praya there is a direction sign that says SUKARARA turns right through the not so wide asphalt road but now this road has been given violence.

Violated with a good type of asphalt and the addition of widening and shoulder of the standard road there is a large mosque in the corner of the junction about 500 meters in. Now this is where you will see the different Sukarara faces, I mean along the road about 2 km to the south there is an art shop that transparently accentuates woven results.

The voices of this village’s distinctive character, the sound “Belide”, a kind of wooden sword-shaped object used as a tool to tighten threads while weaving “no taktak taktak” throughout this village, will dominate more than other voices. , middle-aged and old in front of the store demonstrating the process of making ikat weaving on each art shop terrace which has a shop sign.

What we see is that this art shop has a variety of shop sizes, there are art shops that are large, medium and small, please stop where once you have chosen a parking spot in front of a shop, a shop employee will greet you with a smile while opening your car door then say hello welcome.

Local guides will let you enter to see the designs and colors of favorite that you like, after seeing the shopkeeper will invite you to the front of the shop to see the demonstration of the weaving process if you want to try to feel the weaving process you can ask try it and will teach the ways.

After feeling the way of the manufacturing process, you can also ask from what yarn material is used for weaving and what coloring ingredients are used to color it, usually every visitor who comes and seems to want to know exactly what the shopkeeper will usually invite you to go around into the village behind the shop to see the villagers of Sukarara who were undergoing weaving activities because weaving in Sukarara village was the livelihood of the local people.

In the spare time, besides weaving the population, it is also a farmer and farm laborer, the uniqueness of the Sukarara village, all women seem obligatory to weave because of the limited sources of livelihood to help the family economy because there are no industrial factories in Lombok like many in Java and even girls. girls in Sukarare are not permitted to marry by the rules of the village awik-awik if they cannot weave because this is a village Awik-awik(village role) that should not be violated on the grounds that if you cannot weave you want to eat what your children will, well these words are often I heard.

After the development of tourism in Lombok more and more foreign Tourists and domestic tourists who bought handicrafts and greatly opened up opportunities for income of the Sukarara people apart from the results of farming but on the contrary now women in Sukarare village consider weaving work to be the main job rather than farming in the fields.

Woven fabric cannot be compared to ordinary fabric, woven fabric is an expensive product whose manufacturing process is very thorough and takes a long time with very distinctive patterns spun with color from natural materials, especially dark colors for reddish brown color using tree fibers mahogany, teak stems for light brown, tamarind seeds for ground brown color and rotten banana stems for dark brown color

In addition, the ingredients of grape are mixed with mangoesteen peel for purple while the colors pink, yellow, green and blue are ingredients that are difficult to obtain from natural dyes craftsmen get it from chemicals purchased from stores for the manufacturing process, you can also ask to try it on here.

Just for a pose, take pictures to be posted on Facebook. Besides that, you can also request to wear Lombok-style clothes or dress up like a Lombok bride made from woven fabric and take a photo behind the stage house in the form of a rice barn, like the icon of the Lombok area. of course with these photos you can remember your visit to the village of Sukarara.

 

SNORKELING TRIP IN GILI TRAWANGAN

Snorkeling is a beach or marine park tourism activity that is quite fun by using simple tools such as “Mask” or google like glasses for water that covers most of the face including the nose so that it does not enter water, with this object you can literate in a drowned head in the water, “Snorkel” is a breathing tube connected through the mouth up (air) on the snorkel there is a kind of grip in the mouth by being bitten so that it is not easily released from the mouth, you can also dip it into the water to the end of the hose Connecting to the air entering the water while holding the breath to dive to a depth of several meters depends on how long you can hold your breath.

For the purpose of getting closer to the object in the snorkeling spot, after that when you connect it back into the air, the water that enters the snorkel hose can be blown until the water that comes in is blown out without having to remove the snorkel from the mouth to remove water in it but this can done for people who are used to snorkeling. Now these two things are the most important in doing snorkeling activities, while other additional tools such as “fin” or more easily understood are referred to as feet-frogs because when people use it looks like a frog with a long leg shape with a wide foot fin shape easy pedaling, this tool is additional so that when snorkeling is faster to do movements in all directions: left, right, front and bottom, but that is for people who are used to using this tool, if not used this tool will only make it difficult even sometimes resulting in legs becoming cramps.

In doing snorkeling activities, it is very supportive for those who have often snorkeled and there are even some participants who are very disappointed if they do not get fin facilities or are disappointed to not be able to rent fin because for snorkeling sharing on Gili Trawangan fin does not include the facilities provided on the boat and to get it you can rent with a rental price of between Rp 10,000 – Rp 20,000 per pair, the price depends on the condition because fin also consists of various classes with various brands, shapes and prices that adjust the quality.

“Lift jacket” or called lift vest, this is very needed for participants who cannot swim or are not good at swimming but snorkeling using a life jacket you will not be able to maneuver like going into the depths with the intention of wanting to get closer to the fish or want to be close when you see a turtle that is more blank on the reef, see the marine park and the fish contained in it, using a life jacket it looks like the fin doesn’t need to be used because the benefits are not maximal.

Snorkeling is a very cheap alternative when compared to diving activities because the tools used for diving are very expensive and use more prepared tools such as wet suit, oxygen canisters and other knacks, participants must have a license to be able to do fun dive besides All equipment in general is outside production. For one diving, it only lasts 45 minutes for one spot and costs more than US $ 35 / person or one dive + Rp 50,000 for coral reef conservation costs managed by the foundation, “Gili Echo Trust” developed by Caucasians, Caucasians, instructors diver on Gili Trawangan, but also needs to be recognized that diving provides a sensation that is much different than snorkeling

For those who have never snorkeled, I suggest you try it, the theory is very easy, on the boat, please ask to be taught how to use the right tool to guide the snorkel on the boat before splashing into the water, but wait for the other participants to come down to the water to snorkel. The most important thing to take into account is that there are things that we never expected, namely: If people are not familiar with this trip, they will experience seasickness with an indication that the head feels dizzy, cold sweat and will end up vomiting, removing all stomach contents, but there is some people also can stand without feeling this complaint.

Targeting people who will experience vomiting or seasickness is usually for those who are trying to be on a boat without going to snorkeling, another thing that needs to be avoided when snorkeling is not to get sea water into the nasal cavity or mouth especially until it can swallow it in. into the throat, this will usually make the head feel dizzy and will lead to seasickness, this will trigger our mind to immediately edge to stay away from the boat but what if we take part in trip sharing or public snorkeling because the participants consist of around 50 people , it is very unlikely that just because a few people feel dizzy or get seasick then we can ask the snorkel guide to steer the boat aside, but if our boat status is leased, private or chartered certainly no party will object.

 

Public Snorkeling

The choice of snorkeling in this way is common in Gili Trawangan, only by paying a ticket worth Rp 100,000 / person without a reservation, surely you have got a seat on the boat with full boat capacity, there is no limit as long as the boat is considered able to accommodate participants, but the minimum limit is determined approximately under 10 participants but don’t be afraid, that doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to do snorkeling at that time. Usually participants who are less passengers will be shared with other places or to other snorkeling services, unless there are certain times to watch out for during the visiting season, especially during the Christmas and New Year holidays, in Gili Trawangan especially on the east coast of the island will change like sea ​​of ​​human.

Of course, times like this if I really intend to snorkel, I suggest that you immediately reserve in advance or at least one day before, participants have prepared the equipment on the glass bottom boat or boat trip specifically for snorkeling facilities below. there is a glass to see fish or marine park from the boat as you can see in the picture above, this is for those who do not want to go down to snorkel, from this glass the participants can see the situation under the boat trip, but it is certainly far more exciting if participants can go down to the water to snorkel because seeing from the glass on the boat is not much better like watching from a television screen.

Tools prepared on the boat: Google, Snorkel, Life jacket for those who are less swimmer and bottled water bottles of 600 ml of mineral water, for fin or foot-frogs are not included in the package price of Rp 100,000 / person, you must rent a range of IDR 10,000 – IDR 20,000 per pair depending on conditions. This trip departure schedule starts at 10.30 am until 03.00 pm but must check in first 30 minutes before departure, this trip will visit spots on Gili Meno and spot on Gili Air there is a stop for lunch approximately 1 hour or even more long if the season is visiting because the restaurant will be flooded with orders but lunch pay for itself at the beach side restaurant or can also take food on the boat because the food is quite expensive as well as the range of Rp 50,000 to Rp 60,000 for class fried noodle and gado-gado.

Before leaving for snorkeling, it is advisable to bring bread which is used or which is expired to feed the fish or bread to be used for eating fish when snorkeling, which is definitely cool when you sprinkle bread in front of you then the fish will come grabbing in peace – Even if our bread and our bread is slightly visible in the fist, the fish that are starving will head your hand to grab the bread in the fist, which is certainly not the big fish, the range of the palm, especially this you can do it on the spot located on Gili Air. About 30 minutes before 3 o’clock the snorkeling guide will take us on a boat to get back to Gili Trawangan. If your arrival consists of a large group, I suggest long ago to reserve this trip so we try your group to be on the same boat or if your group consists of 30 people you can pay this trip 100,000 / person but can use a special boat and choosing a departure time is more flexible without having to be affected by other participants as well as if the boat is sharing.

Alternative Snorkeling

This alternative snorkeling is the same as “public snorkeling” only the departure time only from 01:00 am – 05:00 pm and the price is more expensive Rp 150,000 / person and if less than 15 participants are canceled, the advantage of alternative snorkeling is usually not too huddled on the Trip boat, can avoid the crowds of the public group snorkeling at snorkeling spots because the snorkeling spot is just a location, not all beaches are good snorkeling places and before snorkeling you can have lunch before the trip starts and there is time to find a lunch location according to your will. Why do I say alternatives? Well this is indeed an alternative schedule because there are several reasons and the reasons for this are because:

  1. Very often tourists come to Gili Trawangan by using fast boats from Bali directly to the port of Gili Trawangan but unfortunately they cannot follow the schedule of “Public Snorkeling” because the speed boat arrival schedule from Bali is the earliest around 10:30 am while at that time it is the scheduled Public departure Snorkeling was not a chance to snorkel on the day of arrival while the agenda was to stay at Gili Trawangan only overnight and tomorrow morning to check out the hotel at 11:00 am.
  2. Often tourists who stay in Senggigi, Mataram, Kuta Lombok or from other places arrive late to arrive on Gili Trawangan for various reasons, especially those who are most often due to wake up late so that the plan that should arrive on Gili Trawangan at 10:00 am actually arrives at 11:00 am and finally left behind to follow the Public Snorkeling schedule.
  3. Sometimes there are other causes, tourists who had already calculated the time to arrive on Gili Trawangan at 10:00 am turned out to be stuck in traffic due to many kinds of causes that were never expected and eventually lost time on the road, and most often if tourists came by using Public Boat crossing transportation because it is too long to queue to wait for a full boat.
  4. An alternative way to still be able to take part in the Public Snorkeling so that you don’t pay more is Rp. 150,000 when you check out at a lodging or hotel where you stay, you should be able to make sure that the luggage is left in the hotel office if allowed or can leave luggage where you buy a Snorkeling trip ticket

Snorkeling Small Group

Snorkeling with this small group is intended for participants who are less happy with too many people on the boat and also at snorkeling spots there are snorkeling boats crowded with passengers meeting other groups in the same place at the same time so that the number of people who snorkel almost become thousands people especially during high season or visiting season if you do not like this situation you can use alternative snorkeling with a small group with a smaller boat and the participants are limited in capacity to a maximum of 10 people and a minimum of 4 participants on a boat trip.

Participants will be charged Rp 250,000 / person or the price will be Rp 150,000 / person if the participant of more than 15 people apart from the group is a little too, the departure time is changed earlier at 08.30 am or the second trip you can do at 01.00 pm because in general the departure time to snorkel on Gili Trawangan from the north to the south end at 10.30 am you can imagine a boat with an average capacity of 40 participants and up to 60 participants even from one of the “Lucky Trip” snorkeling services having a basic boat with a capacity of up to 125 participants. If multiplied by the number of boats departing from other snorkeling services, approximately 17 boats, almost thousands of people snorkeling from Gili Trawangan.

At the same time, it is divided into several spots, not including those who snorkel from Gili Meno and Gili Air, and those who snorkel on the beach without using a boat trip are sure that the peak season will be 2 thousands more people who will be snorkeling at the same time, inspired from Caucasians and Caucasians who complain, he said when they were snorkeling they saw more people than seeing fish. “We are not seeing fish but every where we see people,” he said, because not all beaches are good for snorkeling. the only place that innovates the departure schedule and the small number of participants that is where I recommend on the “Sea Star Tour” which is located in front of the art market or when the night will turn into a Food Market on the beach, there we give the name ” Special Snorkeling is more complete equipment including fin and bread to eat fish.

In this case the boatman will control the boat and you will control the boatman, which means that all your requests will be heard more than the large number of participants, including you can ask to be moved aside or even down to go up to the other island if you want to walk walk 15 minutes on Gili Meno or on Gili Air, also include being able to choose restaurant where to stop for lunch or just shop for snacks or soft drinks, the guide also more intentionally guides you but another thing if the participants have more than 15 people all that can carried out by mutual agreement.

Snorkeling By Charter Boat

Boat charters are another alternative if you come to Gili with a group or just want to snorkel privately but for this reason you have to book the most late one day before because considering the existence of a boat trip like this is very limited in Gili Trawangan when measured by the number of tourists coming visiting Gili Trawangan, boat charter includes boat, guide, snorkeling equipment and most definitely the most must have jacket lift because this is an appeal from the relevant apparatus for each boat to be facilitated with jacket lifts or life jackets for safety. The boats that appear on the side that we usually use for charter if more than 10 participants because the upper deck can also be used for passengers sitting on it and it seems more fun to enjoy the open atmosphere while self y or take pictures with your friends, if you want less than 10 of us prepared another boat of the same size but no upper deck as shown in the picture

The duration for a 4 hour snorkeling boat charter can also be reduced in duration but the price can be reduced by just a little and also the duration can increase how much negotiable price must be added but for a 4 hour duration in my opinion is enough, there are 2 types of charter boats namely: Glass bottom boat (the glass is below to see fish from the boat) and the normal boat is the normal boat with no glass underneath. Please choose according to taste but what is normal is that the boat is cheaper, less than 15% of the glass price. bottom boat.

For some people using glass bottom boats is considered not too important, especially for Caucasians, Caucasians who are generally good at swimming, because it is far better and more cool to dive into the water than looking from a boat through a glass, it is only possible if there is a small child in groups or maybe there are mothers who are lazy to take off their robe dresses or there are participants who cannot swim even though a life jacket has been prepared or there may be participants who do not have changing clothes or there are lazy participants who are wet, who are sure to go down using snorkeling equipment far better sensation because you can directly blend with fish in the water.

The boats in Gili Trawangan mostly use wood and there are some who use Fiber material, for the price of the boat charter is very flexible depending on the season of visit and certainly depends on the number of participants who participate because separately snorkeling equipment is rented elsewhere if the supply is insufficient . The rental price is analyzed at Rp 900,000 / 2 people and for each additional number of participants Rp 100,000 / person and has been prepared on board equipment: Mask, Snorkel, Fin, Jacket life jacket and guide will lead this trip. For the visiting season we will increase the price by 10% given the many requests except for public snorkeling prices of 100,000 / person but the service conditions cannot be maximized because the participants are too many and a little difficult to control and at risk of not being able to take the trip because during the visit season it cannot be accommodated and must be aggressive on board the boat before it is declared full.

Snorkeling Equipment Rental

If you want to snorkel only just rent snorkeling equipment on Gili Trawangan you can get it very easily, along the coast on Gili Trawanagan especially the east coast you can see directly the equipment openly hanging on the top of a place that resembles a rag because in the cart stomach is a storage place for snorkeling equipment after being washed or after being returned by the tenants, cleaned with Sun light or Mama Lemon soap. The rental price for a set consisting of Mask, snorkel and fin is around IDR 30,000 – IDR 50,000 depending on conditions.

If the visiting season of any price on Gili Trawangan will increase very drastically, including snorkeling equipment, the price is determined at will, meaning that the previous IDR 30,000 / set will be offered to IDR 50,000 / set, it is already business law if the demand is more than the inventory, the price can change , how about the normal jacket lift or life jacket around Rp. 15,000 – Rp  20,000 for one time use the rental price is not calculated based on how long we use it.

OK, before renting snorkeling equipment you should first ask the local people or people who know where the snorkeling locations are good because in Gili Trawangan not all beaches are good snorkeling places, as far as I know in front of the Villa Ombak hotel a little to the south is very good for snorkeling locations or on the north side of Gili Trawangan there are large coral reefs such as an average 1 cubic cubicle which is inhabited by a type of Gropper or a type of fish that is quite large but no ornamental corals appear here .

For that reason, if renting equipment must also be measured to what extent you have to carry from the location of the rent to the location of snorkeling if not so you have to rent a bicycle and rent snorkeling equipment like Caucasians, if they feel that the snorkeling location is not good they can moving to a location farther away according to people’s recommendations and what is certain when parking a bicycle must be converged so that the comfort of the snorkel is not to think about what the bike will bring or not because it often happens on Gili Trawangan.

NOTE:

For all use of snorkeling equipment must be accounted for if it occurs lost or released while snorkeling especially fin, mask and snorkel. If this happens, immediately report to the snorkel guide so that it can be taken, if it cannot be taken because it falls at a depth that is difficult to reach, then the participant must compensate for the falling instrument by 75% of the price in the shop.

RENT BICYCLE IN GILI TRAWANGAN

Cycling on Gili Trawangan seems to have to be if you want to stay more than one day, even though actually renting a bicycle on Gili Trawangan is considered expensive, but if compared to your need to explore Gili Trawangan, of course the rental price is not very meaningful compared to your need to know about many things on Gili Trawangan. Because with a bicycle you can surround the island of Gili Trawangan, go wandering all over Gili Trawangan.

The reason why renting a bicycle in Gili Trawanagan is very expensive: Firstly because bicycles on Gili Trawangan are damaged faster because they are very vulnerable with the blowing of the sea breeze which carries saltwater steam which results in a fast rusty bicycle body, the second because the land is rented to place bicycles in Gili Trawangan is very expensive. The price of bicycle rental depends on the condition of the bike, the average bicycle rental price is set at Rp.50,000 / day and can also be rented with a count of Rp.15,000 / hour, Rp. 30,000 / 3 hours and Rp. 40,000 (after sunseat / until afternoon) and for one day Rp. 50,000

The price of bicycle rental in the visiting season will be rented more expensive up to Rp 75,000 / day. This means the equivalent of renting a motorcycle per day can even be cheaper if in the city but this is because the choice is forced rather than not. Especially in July, August, September (European visit season) in December before Christmas and New Year up to 5 days after the new year the price of bicycle rental on Gili Trawangan is beyond reason but what can we do, count once a day.

There are various types of bicycles for rent in Gili Trawangan, ranging from girls’ bicycles with baskets on the front of bicycles, MTB bikes, tandem bikes with long shapes that can be shaken by the riders behind, there are bikes with front tires and tires there are big backs like the size of Honda Tiger motorcycle tires and there are also those that have recently penetrated Gili Trawangan namely electric bicycles, this bike has lights like a motorcycle and is almost similar to the first Mio type me-tick motorbike but the difference is there is a spare shaking pedal when the battery runs out before being charged.

This bike can also be jolted but a little heavier than ordinary bicycles in general but this type of bicycle is not rented out, which seems to use a lot of elderly people and teenage girls, besides the most prominent are businessmen because they are demanded fast and routine in their business activities to check the goods coming in the port, there are rarely bicycles for children but very rarely are the class of MBX or mini bikes.

The most rented type in Gili Trawangan is the type of female bicycle that has a basket in front, almost 80% and if you are a boy don’t be uncomfortable to use this type of bike because in Gili Trawangan, the guy looks more trendy using this type of bike because it is more impressed as a tourist, generally people look at the practical side because with bicycles that have baskets can be used to put luggage, generally Caucasians – Caucasians use it as a place to put towels and drinking water while looking for the beach where snorkeling or sunbathing is done, so if anyone feels not use it bikes that are lined with not available on Gili Trawangan island.

In addition there are tandem types of bikes that look cool or seem romantic when used with a partner but actually using this bicycle must exercise first because it will be difficult for those who just tried it, especially when uniting the rhythm when pedaling or shaking the pedals that must be in tune together, besides the rider who the front will feel more difficult than the commonly used bicycles, there are also new trendy bicycles that are using large tire bikes, this type is slightly heavier with the usual type but very suitable for sandy terrain while the road in Gili Trawangan is only 500 meters the sandy ones also on the back or north side of Gili Trawangan island.

I need to remind you not to forget that at the bicycle rental place you have to ask for key or bicycle padlock after the reservation, usually the tenant records where the hotel is where you live, room number, bicycle number code, starting time to rent, date of hire and signature because of the current times bicycle business is often problematic in Gili Trawangan because the number of bikes is too much, besides being obtained from the bicycle rental place also obtained from hotel facilities (rent) so that it often happens to be exchanged with others.

Sometimes it is used by people who are not responsible after being placed in a distant place or not placed in the original place, so the tenant will be surprised when they want to take the rented bike and it is not where they parked, it could also be stolen and the paint color changed If this is ignored then get ready to deal with people where you rent a bicycle, they may ask for compensation for a new bicycle.

If you want to surround Gili Trawangan by cycling it takes approximately 45 minutes if you are cycling without stopping. The length of traveling around Gili Trawangan is approximately 8 km with 40% road conditions already 10 cm thick which is the east coast of Gili Trawangan island because it is part of the riot, when viewed from the location of most hotel accommodation, he said, some road rebates were already done and it has been finished now is the foundation of the road body plan which will be on the asphalt around according to the statement of a foreman while supervising the work of the rebate at that time.

There is a road leading to the center of the island of Gili Trawangan, some of which have not been evenly structured, some have been given paving block violence but have been damaged by a horse shoe or damaged due to dumbbells and Cidomo and some are still dense dirt roads, in some places there are dusty roads during the summer and muddy during the rainy season but what is clear is that in Gili Trawangan, if it is flooded, it will only take half an hour to rain to the sea.

With a bicycle you can look around towards the middle of Gili Trawangan here you can see the lifestyle of the native people of Gili Trawangan island but now the impression of the slum has been displaced because the Gili Trawngan people have already been rich all. Also in the middle of the island can still find resort hotels or villas with the concept of a very luxurious island architecture and there is also a modern architectural concept, some are the houses of foreigners who work in Gili Trawangan or Caucasians – Caucasians diving business owners or hotel and restaurant, besides that you can see brick making activities but the sand material is taken from the mainland of Lombok island because in 3 Gili there is a prohibition to mine sand, there are also bicycle repair shops, wholesale shops, agent air gallon, laundry services, some are still there fields and gardens that are quite extensive, soccer fields and traditional markets that are not far from public ports besides that in the middle of Gili Trawangan island there are still some livestock such as goats and cattle grazed.

In the afternoon I recommend visiting the sunset area or cycling to sunset to watch the sunset because every afternoon there is a special bar to visit when the sun goes down, the restaurant manager will line up tables and benches on a wide expanse of white sand Well there you can order drinks and then sit back and listen to the thump of western music because visitors will usually be dominated by Caucasians and Caucasians, in addition to cycling during the day on Gili Trawangan is less pleasant because the temperature is very hot because of the tropical coastline it must be like that, if during the afternoon I recommend cycling to the north because there are still many shady evergreen trees and can stop at the turtle breeding site located approximately 1.5 km to the north of the harbor.

RENT BANANA BOAT IN GILI TRAWANGAN

Talking about the activity of water in Gili Trawangan might be less than other places, of course what I mean here in Bali is because the only rival to national standards for Bali tourism affairs is a competitor who is still not displaced because Bali first introduced Indonesian tourism to foreign countries even the number of domestic tourists also counterbalance contributes to Bali tourism but lately Lombok seems to emerge as a new challenger to tourism affairs only that Lombok has not been fully supported by infrastructure when compared to Bali but as time goes by it seems Lombok will become Bali as it is now this.

We talk again to the focus of the initial discussion, namely the problem of water tourism activities, of course the two camps have their own reasons why water sports in Bali are more stretched than in Lombok? maybe the reason is because the location in Bali (Tanjung Benoa) is more feasible because judging from the carrying capacity of the location it is very supportive because at that location (Tanjung Benoa) is flanked by land (headland) so as to block the flow of water that is directly oceanic to evek from the wave making the location it does not wave or calm until it allows to play Jet sky, flying fish, banana boats and so on. Then what about the water sports in Gili Trawangan? of course it’s different because water traffic is less supportive because there are too many boat activities that go by and narrow the zone to do activities like this.

But it doesn’t mean that the water activity in Gili Trawangan is only a little problematic with other water activities that have been sustained in Gili Trawangan, for example diving and snorkeling activities can already be imagined if this location is mixed with the activities we mentioned before then: if someone is cool buzzing around and then there is a jet sky passing fast? please explain yourself about what will happen as well as diving activities that at times dive masters instruct their students to float on the surface of the water then there is a jet sky crossing, of course the worry is very haunting if caught by jet sky or banana boat, but for banana boat indeed there is a separate zone for this activity and there is indeed a Gili Trawangan.

In Gili Trawangan, the only place where banana boat rentals are temporarily in the Ombak villa is right in front of the beach side hotel, there is a reservation counter, we will see banana boat displayed there generally, this game will look fun if the participants are complete in a banana boat consisting of 6 participants who already have a handle or hold on a rubber boat that resembles a banana to be called banana boat so that it is easier to understand the meaning, you can imagine if only one participant who participated in this game might look funny? usually this game is in demand by domestic tourists who are teenagers but that does not mean that it is not in demand by Caucasians, banana boats with a speed boat. Participants are given the safety of using a life jacket so that when it falls or is separated from the banana boat it will float and not tired to pedal This leg applies to anyone even if you are good at swimming.

Pulled by a speed boat quite tight so as to make the sensation of the riders shouting when the waves were shaken caused by the effect of the speed boat engine itself it could also be because the sea was in bumpy conditions, the duration was about 20 minutes for more details come to Gili Trawangan and ask where is the villa hotel waves, people who are only 3 working days in Gili Trawangan will surely know where the hotel villa Ombak is because this hotel besides the pioneers is also famous for being one of the biggest hotels, regarding the rental price please ask directly or maybe if I had time I would ask for information about the rental price but the last time I heard information that banana baot can only be booked by the hotel guests of Villa Ombak only and not rented out to the public so if it really really intends to come to Gili Trawangan to try banana boat activities must book a hotel in Villa Ombak.

Sade sub-village is part of Rambitan village, Pujut sub-district, south central Lombok which is currently packed into a tourist destination for those tourists who want to know how the Lombok people in the past are still left with a picture of the Sasak that can be seen from traditional building architecture. consists of thatch roofs whose skeletons are only bamboo sticks that are not nailed only tied with palm fiber or rope made of bamboo rope, the walls are woven bamboo or called Bedek, the floor consists of ground floors whose surfaces are covered with buffalo as a substitute for cement, shiny and also to harden the surface of the floor or as a function of cement he said that if you sleep on the floor to be warm and the mosquitoes do not dare to approach.

MAYURA HINDU TEMPLE, CAKRANEGARA CITY OF LOMBOK

Mayura hindu temple is a legacy of the Mataram kingdom which was built since the 17th century which is located in Cakranegara which is included in the municipality of Mataram, currently a historical and religious tourism destination, especially very closely related to the history of the formation of Lombok’s multi-ethnic community, especially the presence of Hindus in Lombok, which previously began with the arrival of Anak Agung Ngurah Karangasem and his soldiers to expand the kingdom’s territory in Bali.

There is no resistance from the kingdom that has existed in Lombok before as well as the Selaparang kingdom because it is found in East Lombok, even stories from parents when the first troops from Bali came to set foot on Lombok through the west side of Lombok island and had time to camp in the Dasan Agung sub-district now until the name Dasan Agung is taken from the history of his camp, Anak Agung, the Dasan in sasak means place and Agung which is defined by Anak Agung until the word Dasan Agung, which now means “the place of Anak Agung” means camping.

Mayura Park, which used to be called the Kelepug Park, means the sound of water falling because there is a water source coming from the slopes of Mount Rinjani until its name is changed to Mayura, which means peacock because it is said that there are many snakes and a king’s friend from Paskistan. advise solutions to overcome the many snakes in the park by bringing peacocks so that snakes can be preyed on by peacocks and this idea is considered successful by the king until the king rewards his friends from Pakistan by making a statue now in the garden resembling the Pakistani news source I got it from the Lombok TV program.

There are still some statues that resemble the Chinese and some other statues, but for more details, let’s come and for more details, we can ask the Local guide there, there is a name, Mr. Agus whose posture is big, Mr. Agus will invite you into and invite you to the hall Kambang and from here will be explained about all the objects in the park but actually every visitor must wear a red scarf and how to tie it is not arbitrary depending on status.

If you have a partner or are married the scarf ties must be on the left side of the waist, if it’s still a single, the scarf ties around under the navel and if you already have a candidate you should tie the right waist about the intention of coming to ask Mr. Agus but the atmosphere is now the most up to date beside the Mayura Park wall near the parking lot there are many people who market agate which seems to be less attractive because the stone traders putting up a tarpaulin placed on the garden wall also create a traffic jam when city people return from the office where they work.
