Why You Shouldn't Come To Gili Air
I woke up this morning on Gili Air island with some thoughts about why you shouldn't visit.
You should not travel to Gili Air if you:
1: Hate small bug bites
Unless mosquitos and spiders don't like your blood type, getting bit is unavoidable.
Thankfully my Airbnb host stocked the place with a large supply of Minyak Kayu Putih (Cajaput Oil) that works great for repelling bugs without making you smell funky.
2: Like wearing shoes
Gili Air has a much different pace than the city.
There are no automobiles and out of the 3,500 people on the island, I imagine less than 10 are wearing shoes.
3: Prefer big cities
Last night's walk to dinner covered about 25-33% of the island.
See the pic below.
Do any of these 3 things bother you?
If not, then get your ass to Gili Air.
It's worth it.
