The local people didn’t go to the beach, only pass.  When you go to the beach you need to cross the road but the hotel had some people control how you close the road because it is dangerous they don’t have traffic lights. You are more safe.

Everyday we work up and took breakfast and we go to the beach.

TRIP TO LOMBOK INDONESIA

I was excited because we were going to an island again for hollidays, but when I read about that island, some remarks weren’t goog, however I continued with positive thoughts, an island, sea and beach what else can I ask for?
We had two flights one from Pudong in Shanghai and other one in Singapore because we had a transfer there. The first flight was bad because the plane was moving a lot, I was afraid and in a moment I feared for our lives, luckily it was only for a few minutes. In Lombok after one hour we were at hotel.
Already at hotel we went to know (of course) the beach, but what was my suprise? The beach didn’t have too much water, it was 50 mts or more beyond, that looked a grassy field due to seaweed. I told to myself ¨ohh my god, what have we done?
I was dissapointed to see that landscape and I thought that my husband thought just like me, but an waiter approach and told us that this happened only in the afternoon and not every day. I relaxed hearing that. Finally, we get used to seeing how the tide went down every afternoon around 2 or 3 pm and we saw the botton of the sea appear on the shore, seaweed, sea urchins, mollusks and shells, while sea as it moved away.
