Why Gili Island?

How is 2017 treating you? I just realise this will be my first blog of the year! Regarding my trip on Gili Island. We spend 3 days and 2 nights on the island of wonderful colours.

1st day


Pearl of trawangan

Can you believe if i say this is the lobby? Isn’t it adorable?

We were planning to stay at ‘Le pirate’ unfortunately it was fully booked. Blessing in disguise this hotel by far is the best hotel on Gili island. Before that let me explain quickly there is three island nearby and the one that we are staying is call ‘Gili Trawangan’.

Its literally a minute away from the hotel to the beach. The best part of this hotel they offer us options to rent bicycle for 6 hours or 12 hours. We rent for 12 hours since its our first day and we plan to cycle the whole island.


We stumble upon this restaurant or the local say ‘Warung’.


The food was very reasonable and to die for…. It cost us only $5 for both! Can you get there anywhere else? well probably my hometown Johor in Malaysia.


Warung Bu Ida

I took a photo of this girl who is working here and her name is Erna. I think this is the only warung on the island. If you see her, means your on the right warung. ‘Warung Bu Ida’ is the name of this restaurant. It means Madame Ida restaurant.

Saw this little house on Gili Air.

I feel like i was back in time on this island


As you can see Gili Air is much more quiet and peaceful. In my personal opinion its too quiet.

Compare with Gili Trawangan white sandy beach, on Gili Air is black glittery sands.

Its good to be back on the white sandy beach of Trawangan
