Gili Trawangan is now very different than when I first visited her stunning glory seven years ago. Seven years ago, she was a sleepy glorious island with open air tiki bars set up with couches under the stars and Pink Floyd and Jimi Hendrix playing in the background. Now her nightlife is very loud and bordering on the obnoxious with Top 40 and Reggae filling the streets. During the day,though, her colors still astound, her coral still washes up on her shores, and her sunsets will still touch your heart. Also, the North Beach is still quiet and untouched and is the area to stay in if your are looking for quiet and relaxation.
