Lombok Shopping Tours
Lombok is a shoppers dream location, especially if you are looking for unique items to remember your holiday by. Lombok has a wide variety of traditional arts and crafts products such as traditonal pottery, traditional textiles, Batik art, stone carving, wood carving and much more. There are two ways to find your own hidden treasures….  you can either visit the individual villages where these amazing works of art are created, or you can stop at the Mataram Arts Market, where products from all over Lombok are displayed in the one place. If you are looking for more of a “Mall” experience, a visit to the Mataram Mall will allow you to find everything you could possibly want.  For anything that you can’t find, simply ask your guide who will be happy to direct you to the right location. Please note that our guides are prohibited from taking ‘secret commissions’.  This practice is not in the best interests of our guests and so not in the best interests of our business. When a guide directs you to a business, you can be sure that the prices are not inflated to cover any secret commissions… the price will depend entirely on the value of the goods and your ability to barter. As a good guide when bartering, offer around 50% of the asking price to start, and go from there until you have found common ground with the seller.
