      Hi Kerry,

      I must agree that both Lombok and Bali are equally fantastic destinations for great shore excursion experiences. It was quite hard to narrow the list down to top 5 considering the diversity of natural landscape and culture in Asia. In the end, it all comes down to personal preferences, which are definitely unique for each individual. Thank you for reading our blog and please keep a look out for our future posts – they’ll surely feature Lombok and Bali!
