Heaven that I will keep coming back!

Beach!! The most place that I am gladly visit over and over again. And for the second time of my life, I was coming back to Gili islands, my favorite place on earth that happen to lays on my country! Its a yay!

Where is Gili islands?

Not a surprise, this place I called heaven must be famous amongst the Europeans. How so? becoz almost 90% tourist coming there are Europeans, and I can tell lots of them speak french and others maybe Dutch and Deutch and something else, I feel like an expat in my own country.

Gili islands is a perfect destination for couples. Consist of 3 island, Gili Terawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air. Most tourist choose Gili Terawangan for their main destination coz this gili is the crowded one and the place for party, the second one is Gili Meno, less crowded and the best choice for honeymoon. I’ll think about this one for my honeymoon if one day I got married :p. And then the third one is Gili Air, the most beautiful one for snorkeling and diving spot, calm water and perfect underworld. Too bad I have no underwater camera :(.

blue sky, white sands and crystal clear water my favorite for all time

If anyone wonder how to reach this triple Islands, here’s the clue.. First of all, we have to landed to Lombok first, the main island before we go the the triple island gili’s. Why Lombok, cos there’s where the plane landed, hehehe. If U want to go to the triple islands Gili, pf course u got to landed to the nearest airport and the get to land transportation to the harbor to cross to the island.

That’s the boats! yea nothing fancy but believe me, its all worth it!

yea, we sailed also with banana! lol. But cant U see that man is smiling? 🙂

The special thing about this boat is, its not only can transfer people, but also can contains food, gallons of water for drinking, vegetables, even a mattress! Too bad I didnt snapped that one. But this boat is all in one transportation device, really cool!

And one more special thing I can tell from many other special thing about this island is, in Gili, all we got is only fresh air. Yes! totally fresh air. U can free your lungs here from all the residue from vehicle, coz all they have no vehicles at all in Gili Islands. They only operating horse cart and bicycle for transportation. No cars and no motorcylce, superb!

This is a commong thing to see a view like this, shirtless men or bikini top women having lunch in cafe nearby. Well I can say in Gili, the food is not really special. Since they have expat tourists coming here, they serve many western food. But nothing special about it. But people come here not to enjoy the food, but the atmosphere and the priceless scenery.

Who cares about the food if u have scenery like this?
