Tucked away in Indonesia’s West Nusa Tenggara

Frolicking on the beach of a small secluded island might be the holiday dream of most work-drenched men and women.

Away from the noisy, clogged and polluted city streets, one can warm their tired feet on sun-baked sand, swim above coral reefs and laze in a bale bengong (stilted open-air wooden hut) with a good book while feeling the delicious sea breeze against their skin. Looking up, instead of a hazy gray sky, one can see the blue of the sky during the day or the twinkling stars at night.
It is definitely my kind of holiday.

So, when I had the chance to escape the capital, I grabbed it and without hesitation I headed to Lombok’s Gili Meno.

Bali Airport to Be Renovated

Expansion work at the Ngurah Rai Airport on Bali Island, Indonesia’s prime tourist destination, will begin in April, Vice President Jusuf Kalla said on Saturday.

Kalla said that the reconstruction project would include an expansion for the domestic terminal and the opening of better road access to and from the airport area.

“The project will cost Rp 1.2 trillion [$110.4 million],” Kalla said.

Kalla spent New Year’s Eve with his family in Bali and inspected the international airport before returning to Jakarta on Saturday.

Bambang Darwanto, head of airport operator PT Angkasa Pura I, said the expansion was part of an effort to accommodate the increasing number of people traveling to Bali.
