Dusk beach in Lombok Senggigi

That afternoon at 13:30 I put a foot in the airport Selaparang, Mataram. A flight from Jakarta, taken only 1 hour 35 minutes with the Garuda plane. The weather was very bad. The wind was blowing 25 knots. Our plane was a sharp decline, but fortunately smart enough pilots to control the plane.

The runway Selaparang relatively short, if the pilot landed the plane was not exactly in the aircraft can, you can quickly get out on the runway. But listen - hear the government of West Nusa Tenggara province is to build an international airport near the city of Praia. I think the name of Lombok Airport (BIL).

If the airport is opened it will open the southern region of Lombok, which dominated in the northern part of Lombok. As is well known known north of Lombok tourism rather than the south. Here and there already famous Senggigi beach to foreign countries. Similarly, the Batu Bolong, Trawangan Gili, Gili Meno and Gili Air. While the southern region of Lombok no less beautiful in the north of Lombok.

Of Selaparang, and I get to Sentosa Hotel (formerly Hotel Intan), about 12 kilometers to the north. Sentosa Hotel is located on Senggigi Beach. In addition to Sentosa Hotel, a four-star, and there are many hotels of five-star. Strategic location overlooking the beach, make this hotel favored by tourists.

Here we can enjoy the sunset at dusk without any hindrance. Stunning panoramic view will find along the coast from Senggigi. And so I'm fascinated with the natural panorama. There is no doubt, in the evening I really enjoy waiting for sunset.

Waiting for sunset, and offer many of the vendors wares. Sometimes very disturbing arrival. They provide a variety of souvenirs ranging from necklaces, bracelets, rings, pearl, games gangsing, and unique fabric of Lombok.

Usually sulk sulk, for goods that were purchased at high prices. But may if we are not careful fooled. Necklaces, bracelets and rings made of pearls they provide between $ 5 to U.S. $ 10 thousand. If we want a little patience and stubborn to negotiate with them, and can be had these materials at a price $ 1 for $ 2.

Sometimes dropped every one of them the price, especially when many of the merchants that provide us the tools. Sarong fabric, for example, offered a price of 125,000 rupees for each fruit. But there are traders who dared to make the dollar 5 for three pieces of cloth gloves. Wah wah .. Wah .. Yes .. Dumping, right?

Anyway ... Let them trade with the how. But obviously I want to enjoy the sunset without bothered.
