Sade : Michelin's recommendations
This Sasak village is one of the few in which the astonishing traditional houses with thatched roofs have been preserved (even the mosque has one). Constructed out of interlaced bamboo or palm leaves, each house stands on a 1m-high wattle and daub platform with a stairway carved into it. The living quarters (bale tani) are often extended by a rice loft (lumbung), whose strange horseshoe-shaped roof has become the emblem of Lombok. Despite the advent of tourism, the inhabitants of the region maintain their rural way of life.
