Senggigi, Lombok, Indonesia

A little dog-eared and past it’s hey-day Senggigi is still a charmer. It’s forced to compete with those chic little upstarts (the Gili Islands) and Bali’s big daddy of debauchery (Kuta) so sadly Senggigi’s tourist dollars have gravitated elsewhere. 60,000R and 24h buys you a scooter and a lovely 100k road trip North to Tiu Pupas Waterfall. 30,000R buys you BBQ fish by the roadside. 90,000R a full body massage on the grass by the beach with a harem of local toddlers to make eyes at. Buck the trend. Come. Spend. Enjoy.

Getting away: $30 SGD / 25 min flight with Lion Air from Mataram to Denpasar. Warning, there’s no airport bar!

Where we stayed: Kebun Villa Sengigi $65 SGD and #1 on Trip Advisor for a reason; the 70 metre pool!

An.an.tas.in : The Anantasin is the name of a shipwreck just of the coast of the Sensi Parasise, Mae Haad Bay, Koh Tao, Thailand. It’s one of my many favorite places.

Lit.tle: Just because it’s cute.
