We took the public boat from Gili T to Bangsal harbour, Lombok. On arrival we were immediately greeted by taxi touts offering extortionate prices for private lifts to Senggigi etc. all I can say is ignore them!!! Walk straight on by, don't even look back or give them the time if day. We had the bad sense and misfortune of... More

This was my fifth visit to Gili T and also my last. When I first went to Gili T(2010) there were not many other tourists around, mainly the 25+ age group. The place had a real chilled out vibe and the prices of food and drink were cheap. The place was clean and the locals friendly. Now the place is... More

I have been to Gili twice now, staying on Trawangan. The first thing you notice is there are no cars, the modes of transport are pushbike, walk or donkey & cart. There are numerous restaurants on the island with Scallywags being one of the most well known. The food there is delish, however, on our last visit the service was... More

My family has been holidaying in the Gili Islands for over 10 years. There is nowhere we would rather spend time. Gili Air is amazing. It is stunningly beautiful. Accommodation on the island is really lovely. Restaurants are great. Diving is amazing (best Dive Center is Blue Marine). It equally suits families and singles. Best of all are the people;... More
