Those islands are wonderful. If you want to chill you go to giliair, if you want to be on your own, you good on Meno and the party place is Gili T. The best sunset are in the opposite site on the party place, grabe a bike or a horse and go around.

Gili Trawangan - My favorite Island no 1. A mix of party-all-night-long and peacefulness. Busy. No motor vehicles. Stunningly beautiful! Gili Meno - Honeymoon Island. Peace and quiet. Gili Air - Somewhere in between.

I rave about Gili Air (the only island I visited out of the 3)...I did a yoga and meditation retreat there and could not believe how peaceful and tranquil it was, it was so refreshing to not have motorised vehicles polluting up the place (air-wise and noise-wise). I felt sorry for the horses but still, it was like going back... More

A small peaceful island where you can have your me time without any city noise (except at night, there are a lot of pubs and bars). No cars, clean air, beautiful views.

Gili T to party. Gili Air to chill. Gili Meno for your honeymoon. On Gili T, eat at the night market for your best bang for your buck. And it's a great place to meet other travelers to start your night off.

I spent 3 nights on Gili-T and in my opinion it was a bit too long. The island's beaches were beautiful and during the day it was nice, quiet, and calm. The fact that there are no motorvehicles on this island is a huge bonus. The only thing to worry about is the massive piles of horse plop you'll find... More
