The Gili Island ( Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air)

The three Gilis Island are one of Lombok's most popular tourist destinations, the islands are very relaxed and laid-back, with countless little beachside cafes serving up delicious food, and fresh fish grills. There are no cars or motorbike on the Island, people either walk around, or pick up the local transport horse cart ( Cidomo ). People travel to Gili's to enjoy the relaxation, beaches, snorkelling and diving. There are now many up-market accommodations. restaurants, bars. If you have planning to visit one of the three Islands, we highly recommend you to use a private transfer service from Mataram airport to avoid hassle and bustle at Bangsal harbor (public harbour to gili islands). Local street vendors who try to sells things with pushing and repressive, or those who grab your luggage and ask too much for a porter service could be annoying. Paying a little extra for a comfort and easy settlement for a wonderful holiday break is worth it, especially those who travel with kids.
