Ko Ko Mo Resort Gili Gede

source We were very excited to be heading to the Southern “secret gili islands” near South West Lombok. I absolutely loved my previous visits to the popular Gili Air and Gili Trawangan, but was keen to explore a less-travelled island. Gili Gede certainly provided this. It is the biggest of the southern Gili islands and is

Gili Gede and Gili Layar: the secret Gili islands.

http://whidbeywritersgroup.com/wp-json/ Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air are all very popular destinations for visitors to Bali.

Sempiak Villas, Selong Belanak, Lombok

Anyone visiting Bali should definitely make the half an hour flight over to the beautiful island of Lombok. Praya (Lombok) airport is an international airport so it can easily be included at the end or start of a holiday itinerary.

Bali and Lombok 2014 video

We had an amazing holiday in Indonesia, working our way from Bali to the Gili islands and Lombok, before returning to Ubud in Bali.
