Travel // A Day in Gili Trawangan
As you know that months ago I was having holiday on Lombok, I visited Gili Trawangan. Gili Trawangan is a small island (Gili means small island) that has breath-taking beaches and sceneries. I was there for only a day but there are so many fun things we did. In Lombok, I stayed in Mataram (Lombok's capital city) and we have to use public boat to cross to Gili Trawangan. And when we arrived at Gili Trawangan, we rent Cidomo (small horse carriage) to see the whole island. Because there are no motorcycles, cars, or even dogs. Seriously, there are no dogs there. People usually use bike to go everywhere (We can rent a bike too!). When we went around the Gili with Cidomo, there are a lot of super beautiful views. Beaches, resorts, everything is beautiful. You should see all photos below.
WHAT TO SEE
Beaches + Corals + Shipwreck
There are a lot of beautiful beaches, and corals if you like snorkling/diving. Plus, there is a Titanic look alike shipwreck, which is the most visited object for divers. If you want to be a diver, there are some diving schools here.
Gili Meno + Gili Air
Rent a boat and you can discover other Gilis! Gili Trawangan is the biggest from three Gili Islands, beside Gili Meno and Gili Air. I visited Gili Air for lunch and it was beautiful too.
WHERE TO STAY
There are a lot of beautiful resorts here you can choose. Minimum price for a night is 1500k IDR (150 USD per night, if 1 USD = 10k IDR). It's a little pricey but it is worth it.
