For the uninitiated, the character of Superman is reported to have super powers and comes from the Planet Krypton. In the film, Planet Krypton planet described as crystals. Well, the view can be found in Turkish Semeti in Lombok.

The trip from the city of Mataram up to Semeti Beach takes 2.5 hours. detikTravel got Semeti Beach around 12:30 pm. All the way from Mataram to Mekar Sari, the streets were winding and up and down.
But the streets are paved and smooth not make the trip to be disturbed. Along the way to the beach, you will also find beautiful rice fields and hills-Beautiful-pretty hills.
Recommended when Turkish Semeti using the motor alone. Although the road to the beach is nice, but the road is wide enough to inhibit your time. In addition, do not forget to bring food and beverages. Because in Turkish Semeti no merchant who sells drinks and food.
