Mataram

Getting there & away

The sprawling, dusty Mandalika bus terminal in Bertais is the main bus and bemo terminal for the entire island and also for long-distance buses to Sumbawa, Bali and Java.

The terminal is fairly chaotic, so be sure to keep a level head to avoid the ‘help’ of the commission-happy touts. Long-distance buses leave from behind the main terminal building, while bemos and smaller buses leave from one of two car parks on either side.

Kebon Roek terminal in Ampenan has a bemo to Bertais (1500Rp) and services to Senggigi (3000Rp).

Perama (635928; www.peramatour.com; Jl Pejanggik 66) operates shuttle buses to popular destinations in Lombok (including Bangsal, Kuta and Tetebatu) and to Bali.
