Gili Meno island is ideal for divers.

Q. Aside from Bali, that other destinations in Indonesia would we recommend? I’m looking for somewhere with engaging sites and culture, good beaches and activities. 

A. It is illusory to hear we are meddlesome in exploring some-more of Indonesia than Bali. 

Another partial of a nation we would suggest visiting are a pleasing Gili Islands. The 3 islands – Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air – are located northwest of Lombok. The islands are accessed by possibly quick packet from Bali or drifting into Lombok and afterwards holding a packet over to the islands. The quick packet from Bali is a many renouned approach to get to a islands though channel a Lombok Straits can infrequently be severe and ferries can be cancelled. If we humour from seasickness, we would suggest holding some faintness tablets with you. 

Gili Trawangan, or Gili T as it’s affectionately known, is a biggest and a many renouned of a 3 to visit. The island is really many inexperienced by commercialism and is a totally opposite knowledge to Bali.  There are no cars and no motorbikes – only horse-drawn carts and bikes to get around. Surrounded by white sandy beaches, there are a vast series of bars and restaurants on a island, ideal for those looking for a party.

Gili Meno is a smallest of a 3 islands and a many underdeveloped. It is ideal for divers as a famous Gili Meno Wall is tighten by, where we can float with turtles and see pleasing corals. Gili Air is a closest of a islands to Lombok and is really many geared during a bill traveller. Whatever we wish out of your trip, a Gili Islands have something for you!
