If you are wanting to explore Bali further, it would be a great idea to take a ferry ride to the Gili Islands. There’s no need to worry about the distance. Speed ferryboat services are the recommended transportation mode going from Bali to Gili Islands since the travel time is just two hours. If one’s on a budget, he/she can opt for the public ferry, which takes around four to five hours, and if money is of no problem, gilicopter rides can take the sightseers to the destination in 30 minutes.
The Gili Islands are located 106 kilometers from the tourist’s favorite Bali. Though, these three isles are known to for their white-sand beaches and towering coconut trees, other than these, they’re much distinct from one another. Gili Trawangan, or Gili T, the nearest island to Bali, is also the most urbane. Many tourists flock to Gili T because of its vibrant nightlife – many restaurants, bars, and parties. On the other hand, Gili Air has preserved much of its local scene and culture, but has also allowed a bit of the cosmopolitan vibe. And last is Gili Meno, which is the most tranquil and least populated. The development of this mini archipelago paved the way for many Gili Islands hotels that strive to give their guests a piece of a paradise during their stay.
Many tourists in Gili Trawangan opt to stay in hotels located near or within the busy streets. One of the factors in choosing their lodging is if it is conveniently located in the area. Jumping to another island, Gili Air accommodation mostly nestles themselves near the shoreline. Because of these, the guests can explore the lagoons and caves, view the breathtaking sunset, and just have a leisurely stroll along the beach. For Gili Meno, majority of the resorts are quite far from the main road, but also a five- to ten-minute walk to the beach. The luxury lodges are usually tucked in the midst of the flora and fauna while some are situated beside the coast. A weekend from Bali to Gili Islands will definitely give a diversity of sights and escapades. A glance to your left and right is a sure visual satisfaction.
Lodging is not a problem at all because Gili Islands Bali accommodation offers many packages and tours to locals and foreigners. Whether you are on an economy trip or luxurious vacation, a perfect room, villa or unit is within reach.
Vacation packages from Bali to Gili Islands are rapidly increasing. All year round, you can have the option which package suits your needs and budget. The serenity and virginity of these islands are certainly the reasons why this is becoming a new must-visit destination in Indonesia.
