Much less developed than neighboring Bali, Lombok is also drier and without Bali's tropical beauty or cultural charm. This island can be reached by hydrofoil from Benoa, ferry from Padangbai and airplane from Denpasar, Surabaya or Singapore. Mataram, the island's capital and home to its only airport, is noted for its beautiful weaving, rattan baskets and Hindu temples (most temples are in western Lombok). The Sasaks, an Islamic people, make up the majority of the population.
