Language of Lombok

The main language spoken on Lombok is Bahasa Indonesia. Don’t speak Bahasa?  No problem, English is widely spoken all over Lombok, though the quality is sometimes less than perfect… hey, we all start somewhere! You will find most people have an understanding of English in the more popular tourist areas around Mangsit and Senggigi, and of course the Gili Islands, and failing all else, sign language works everywhere in the world. The eastern and northern sides of Lombok have less tourist visitors, and so finding someone fluent in English is a little more difficult. With a little patience and perseverance, you will always make yourself understood, and it is always a lot of fun making animal noises in restaurants to find out what sort of meat is on the menu!
