Transportasi dari dan ke Bandara Praya, Lombok

Hello there …

Since I just cameback from Lombok, I will share some information for you regarding the transportation to and from the Lombok Praya Airport (LOP). This is the new airport repalcing the old one near Mataram. This airport is a bit far from the city centre.

But, do not worry, because there are plenty of transportation choices. The cheapest way to get out from the airport is by using the Damri Bus. They serve two destinations, to Mataram bus terminal (Mandalika) and Senggigi Beach. For the first destination you should pay Rp. 20.000, and for the second one is Rp. 30.000 (as of May 2014). Along the way, you can get off the bus. Unfortunately I did not know whether the bus willing to stop if you just hail from the streetside. So I suggest you pick your destination and go there directly. The other public transport is not quite easy to find.

The other way is to use the private car, which I did not know the rate. Some websites said it cost around Rp. 100.000 to the Mataram, and Rp. 150.000 to Senggigi Beach. Or you can rent the car for the whole day which is somewhat cheaper. You can get one day rent for Rp. 250.000, plus the driver and the gasoline. If you just go around the beaches (Southern Lombok, West Lombok), you should prepare Rp. 450.000 for one day. With this one day rent, you also can visit Senggigi Beach. My experience, I rent for the whole day (9 am to 7 pm), and here are the destination:

  1. Tradisional Village, Sade

  2. Tanjang Aan, Kuta Beach, Seger Beach, Mawun (Mawan) Beach, Selong Belanak Beach

  3. Mataram City

  4. Batu Bolong (Senggigi)

  5. We also can enjoy the tradisional food in Lombok (Nasi Balap Puyung, Sate Rembiga)
