The temples, yoga on the beach, food, accommodation and massage are all cheap. In addition, there is a long list of places for backpackers, devotees and spiritual pilgrims. In addition, Bali is considered the most popular destination in Indonesia for solo Western tourists. If you prefer a place with no tourists, take a 25-minute flight to Lombok, which towers over the pancake Gilis like the shadowy peaks of Mordor. Except instead of hiding orcs and a giant fiery eyeball, Lombok nestles dreamy beaches, splashing waterfalls, surfing hot spots and lush rice fields in its fiery belly.
