Bima Eastern Side Sumbawa

Is situated on the Eastern side of Sumbawa and is actually more frequented by travellers than the capital Sumbawa Besar. The reason behind this is that Bima is much better located for those wanting to head to Lakey near Dompu for the surf or for those daring to venture on the islands of Komodo and Rinca. During the dry season, (April – November) Bima and the rest of the Sumbawan landscape transforms from a lush green jungle island to a very hot, arid and dusty place.

Most people arrive in Bima by  Wing Air  have four flights a week flying from Denpassar and Mataram in Lombok. The airport is around a 30-minute taxi ride from the city and you will pass by some typical forms of transportation that Sumbawans generally use. The most common form here is the horse and cart. To see an abundance of horses and carts transporting people and goods around town will almost make you believe you have walked into a Charles Dickens novel.

Bima is a busy place in comparison to the rest of Sumbawa as there is a busy seaport harbouring ships of many sizes and shapes. It is a good idea if you have the time, to pay the port a visit. You will surely meet some colourful characters that will undoubtedly ask you a few questions in their best English. The seaport of Bima transports a lot of produce to Java and you can expect to come across water buffalo, cows and goats all waiting to board the ships. It really is a colourful place awash with activity.
