30 Second Escape – Gili “T”, Indonesia

gilit (912 x 684)

Just about as close to paradise as you can imagine. A tiny island off the coast of Lombok, Indonesia; Gili Trawangan (or Gili “T” for short) is a place to soak up the incredible beauty of the sea. SCUBA diving, snorkeling and sun bathing are the order of the day.

The only means of transport are horse drawn carriages (cidomos) and bicycles. Each night of the week, one of the popular bars has a Party Night where it’s possible to dance on the beach until dawn.

    Gili T does sound like Paradise.

    Surely, you will publish a book on your return

    Hi Jeanne!

    Gili T was amazing! Even the pictures don’t do it true justice. And the people were so sweet. Yes, we are publishing a book and it’ll be out in October (so excited!) (www.wanderpress.com). Take care and thank you for stopping by! 😉

    Lombok is still undiscovered paradise with lust tropical. Which will attract every heart with fascination. Some describe the island as only holiday resort where visitors may relax and recover. Plenty of glistening white sandy beaches are found on almost all of the entire island boundaries, but this is not all offer, the smaller island to the north namely Gili Air, Gili Meno, Gili Trawangan and to the southwest is Gili Nanggu, Gili Gede, Gili Genting and many others only some of which are inhabited, provide a tropical island holiday featuring sun, sand, sea marine beauty. Swimming, snorkeling, and diving would be the best, or fishing? You just get the idea and all requirements are available.
