Hi there, i still have a simple review from my short trip to Lombok.
Everyone knows that when you visited Lombok, especially if it's your first time, it's not complete if you're not visit the Gilis . Gili means small island, and Lombok has three Gilis, it's Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno & Gili Air. All of it has their own uniqueness. But Gili Trawangan is the most popular of the three Gili's. If you have plan to visit Gili Trawangan, you better take time to stay a night or two or more out there to enjoy the Island. It's really amazing there. On the day, you can enjoy swimming, snorkeling, diving, biking or walking around the Island, seeing the breathtaking sunset, and in the night you will enjoy the crazy nightlife ;)) There are many bars, restaurants and also many beautiful resorts & hotels. You can choose which one that you'll love to stay. Me & friends, we're stay at Ombak Sunset Hotel. The hotel is nice with large room, great bathroom, warm, and also has stunning sea view. It's such a nice place to enjoy the sunset in front of the hotel. But i think, most the hotels at Gili Trawangan has beautiful places to enjoying the sunset.
You can get to Gili Trawangan or other Gilis by fast boat or slow boat. The boat depart from Lombok around 7.30am and if you wouldn't stay in Gilis, you should go back around 4.30pm, that's the last shuttle boat time.
- There's no car in Gilis, the only transportation you you can use there to go to or from the harbour is Cidomo ( The horse carts ), so make sure don't bring to many big luggage, except you choose to carry on your luggage by your own.
- Do not let someone carry your bag without first haggling on a price.
- Do not leave valuable items on display or your bags unattended.
Well, let's make a plan to visit Lombok. And hope you'll have a great time.
