Do you think travel agents still play a role in shaping up your travel experience?

When you see the advertisements from travel companies like SOTC, TripAdvisor or Expedia, you may wonder if Travel Agents are still relevant in this technologically-advanced time. 

There is not any iota of doubt that technology makes our travel planning easier, it doesn’t necessarily follow that we no longer need someone who “knows the ropes” to help us plan our trips. Travel agents can assist us to plan worry-free vacations, provide amenities not available to everyone, and save money on a trip that is tailored to meet our needs.

Well, for certain places, it is always advisable to do the bookings through local travel agents and during the travel be accompanied by local travel guides. These guides have extensive knowledge of the area and can be helpful in difficult times. One such place where travel agent is generally recommended is Lombok, Indonesia.

TEMPATKU TOUR AND TRAVEL is a travel agency that believes in travelling for a cause and giving back to the community through volunteering in nonprofit organisation like orphanages, vulnerable people, the needy and showcasing the Sasak Culture.

Tempatku Tour and Travel Lombok would like to offer a warm welcome to all visitors to our beautiful island home Lombok.

Lombok has so much to offer visitors and we are here to help you explore the magic. From the majestic Mt Rinjani in the north, to the famous 3 Gilis (Trawangan, Meno and Air), to the thriving metropolis of Mataram, east to Pink Beach, south to Kuta and its pristine beaches, southwest to Sekotong and the Secret Gilis, and west to the tourist hub of Senggigi, we have a day trip or activity to suit everyone.

Rich in Sasak and Balinese culture, Lombok lies between Bali and Sumbawa, across the Lombok Strait. Direct flights are available from Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Jakarta and it’s a very short flight from Bali. You can also reach Lombok from Bali on one of the many fastboats or a slower vehicle ferry.

As most people who plan to visit Lombok would know, we had a series of devastating earthquakes in July and August 2018. Our locals have lost so much – friends and family; their homes; many schools and mosques; their businesses and jobs; and the simple life they enjoyed up to July 29 2018. 

We know many visitors would love to help but are unsure how they can do this. We have been quietly arranging visits to villages in need, for guests to Lombok who want to help. We have now decided to advertise how you can help. 

Helping the Locals Day Tour

As most people who plan to visit Lombok would know, we had a series of devastating earthquakes in July and August 2018. Our locals have lost so much – friends and family; their homes; many schools and mosques; their businesses and jobs; and the simple life they enjoyed up to July 29 2018. We know many visitors would love to help but are unsure how they can do this. We can help you with this.

Our driver will pick you up from your hotel and take you to Kebun Roek Traditional Markets at Ampenan. Our driver will guide you around the markets to help you choose such things as rice, egg noodles, fresh eggs, fresh chicken and/or fish, fresh fruit and vegetables. 

From the markets our driver will take you to one of the villages in North Lombok. Here you will meet with a local volunteer who will know which village is in need at that time and off you go. Once there you will meet with locals who directly benefit from your donations and visit. You will have the opportunity to see local children learning in their makeshift schools and how the temporary villages are operating while they wait for new houses to be built.

From there you will visit a small coffee production kitchen that has been created since the earthquakes where you can sample freshly brewed coffee, grab some packs to take home and experience some Sasak dancing with the coffee ladies.

We love introducing this tour because everybody wins! You will be buying fresh local produce from our markets, supporting farmers and stall holders; helping a village in need; giving a driver income for the day; and directly helping locals in need. This day out will give you a whole new perspective on Lombok and the fortitude of our locals.

  1. I have not checked in here for a while since I thought it was getting boring, but the last several posts are great quality so I guess I’ll add you back to my daily bloglist. You deserve it my friend 🙂

  2. Hi! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a team of volunteers and starting a
    new initiative in a community in the same niche. Your blog provided us valuable information to work on. You have done
    a outstanding job!

  3. First of all I want to say terrific blog! I
    had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.

    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I’ve had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out
    there. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost simply just
    trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips?
    Many thanks!

  4. I am really inspired with your writing talents and also with the structure on your weblog.

    Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Anyway stay up
    the excellent high quality writing, it’s rare to look a nice blog like this one nowadays..

    Here is my web-site cannabis doctor

  5. Does your site have a contact page? I’m having problems locating it but, I’d like
    to send you an e-mail. I’ve got some suggestions for your blog you might be interested in hearing.
    Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it develop over time.

    Here is my web site skin health

  6. No llevo mucho tiempo usando Internet, quizá sea porque no sabía lo adecuado.

    Pero tengo que reconocer que páginas web como esta me hace sospechar muy bien. Mi nombre
    es %nombre_simple_masculino.dat% Y soy un pequeño pueblo de %provincias_espana.dat%, comparto muchos gustos y aficiones con el resto de la gentío de este
    blog. Lo único que puedo decir es en hora buena por la opinión y el diseño que le habéis dado
    a esta página. Llevo altamente tiempo buscando averiguamiento parecida y no he dado con ella.

    Así que seré un usuario frecuente de la web.

    Muchas gracias por todo y deseo poder colaborar en mi aporte.
