Traveling to the Gili Islands completely changed my outlook on relaxation. I quite enjoy the beach but am very much a do-er on vacation and after one day of lounging I can get a bit antsy. Not so here. I could’ve spent the rest of forever on these tiny islands that have everything you need in paradise. It would seem that they live up to the name they have made for themself worldwide. When you’re here, everything else seems to fade away and without even trying you begin to just appreciate the moment.
“Floating in a turquoise sea and fringed by white sand and coconut palms, the Gilis are a vision of paradise. ” – Lonely Planet

Gili Trawangan (Gili T)
The largest and most well known Gili T is a backpackers haven which brings with it, like all things, pros and cons. It has the infrastructure for tourists along with lots to do and if you’re looking for a good time then you’ve found it. On the other hand it if you’re looking for a quiet getaway this might not be the best place.
