Went for a weekend trip to one of Bali’s neighboring islands, Gili Trawangan, also known just as Gili T. It’s one of the three Gili-islands, the two others being Gili Meno and Gili Air. Took the fast boat from Padang Bai, which brought us there in about an hour and a half.
It’s a true tropical paradise, and Gili T is perhaps best known for it’s excellent snorkeling, diving, and nightlife. We checked out both the former and the latter, both were a great success 🙂 Also, there are no cars or scooters on the islands, only bicycles and horses, which makes for a pretty relaxed setting.
As for the snorkeling, it was spectacular, even saw a big sea-turtle! For 120.000 Indonesian Rupiah, we got a boat-trip that took us to three snorkeling-spots and had lunch included. In comparison, it costs more just in cover-charge to get into the club Svare & Berg in my home-town Hamar… (yeah, madness)
Now we’re back in Canggu after a bumpy boat-ride back to Padang Bai. To the best of my knowledge, everyone aboard was able to keep the breakfast in their tummies, which impressively exceeded my expectations! 😉
