Customizable itinerary

Experience the highlight of Lombok island – you will be able to marvel at its breathtaking natural beauty and observe life at the local villages, each of which is blessed with different scenic surroundings and mountainous panorama. Enjoy the eyecatching views of Lombok landscapes from the foothill of Mount Rinjani. From Lombok, embark on a boat trip to Gili islands, the little tropical paradises. These islands are a dream getaway, which shows you the true pristine nature of Indonesia with crystal clear water, diverse marine life and colourful coral reefs.

A warm greeting awaits at Lombok International Airport; your private guide and driver will meet you in the arrivals lounge and drive you directly to your hotel. Your knowledgeable guide will be happy to answer any questions along the way and will assist you with check-in and registration at the hotel.

After a short rest, we’ll head out for some sightseeing.

The trip will start in Lombok, east of The Wallace Line. Wallace found out in the 19th century that fauna and flora differ greatly between West and East Indonesia. The imaginary line separating the two is called the Wallace line up to this day. It runs through the Lombok Strait, encompassing some of the deepest oceans in the region. Before going to the hotel, start exploring Lombok and several handicraft villages surround Mataram, the sleepy provincial capital.

This tour will give you an opportunity to experience the mountainous and natural beauty on the height combined with a flat green area. Start with a visit to Loyok, a village known for the fine quality of Lombok handicrafts made from bamboo and palm leaves. Next will be the village of Sapiy, which offers cool air, terrace rice fields, stunning view and attractive forest and breathtaking panorama.

Then we will head to the village of Sembalun and the traditional Sasak villages on the eastern slopes of Mount Rinjani, with cool weather and breathtaking views. Continue to the magnificent waterfall at the southern foot of Mount Rinjani and enjoy the beautiful panoramic view. Explore the traditional village located at the main gateway to Mount Rinjani before ending today’s tour on a beautiful windy road, which offers a spectacular panorama of coastline and hill.

Reviews on Our Service

We are committed to giving our customers unforgettable experiences in Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and beyond, not just something staged for tourists. Read reviews written by our customers about their experiences in Indochina after they have returned home. These include the ratings and comments on attractions, guides, activities, hotels and food.

The purpose of our trip to Vietnam was to see the areas where husband/father was during the Vietnam War.

Booking our Vietnam trip through Asia Pioneer Travel was such an easy process. Chloe worked with me to make sure our trip was what our family wanted. Everything was catered to our preferences and scheduled with such detail. Chloe was so easy to work with and was always available for questions despite the time difference. She handled everything for us; all we had to do was book our international flights. We were met at the airport and driven to our hotels at every location. Our tour guides picked us up every morning and our itinerary was planned out so that we were able to visit north, central and south Vietnam. Pretty incredible for a ten -day trip. Our tour guides were knowledgeable and friendly. Thank you again Chloe, Eric, Tony and Yen and our drivers.

Unforgettable last minute trip in North Vietnam and Cambodia and amazing agent (Ms Cherry)! 100% recommended!

I had a wonderful time in Vietnam and Cambodia! It was easily one of the favorite trips I have ever had. Every sight and experience was worth it, people everywhere were nice, I loved the food and I always felt extremely safe everywhere and anytime.
I decided to leave very last minute and wasn’t sure I would be able to plan everything in time. I reached out to a few agencies, but Asia Pioneer Travel was the only one who really made the effort to help me book the trip I was looking for! Ms Cherry was an amazing agent! She was able to plan everything in very a short notice and was also able to make adjustments to the itinerary to accommodate my wishes! She was also checking on me via WhatsApp during the trip and met me in Hanoi, making sure everything was going well.
I have already recommended Asian Pioneer Travel to friends who are thinking about a trip there and I will most definitely reach back to them for my next trip to Asia!

Incredible tour experience

Chloe is an amazing travel planner! My husband and I had a fantastic vacation in Hanoi, Halong Bay, Hoi An, and Ho Chi Minh City. She was extremely responsive in making adjustments to our itinerary through the planning phases. She booked beautiful hotels, reliable drivers, and knowledgable and friendly tour guides. I would recommend APT to anyone traveling to Vietnam!
