    I’m tossing up between Gili Air and Gili Trawangan. I’ve heard it’s quieter in Gili Air but how does it compare to Gili Trawangan for prices and value?

      Hi Ted! Gili Air is indeed quieter than Gili Trawangan. Party nights are less frequent in Gili Air, and full moon parties are held with a retro twist. The crowd is more mature in Gili Air and more laid back.

      In terms of value, prices for food, drinks and accommodation are the same in Gili Air and Gili Trawangan, it’s the flavours that are different! Venues in Gili Air just have a different vibe and feel than in Gili Trawangan. That’s what makes the Gili Islands so unique!

      Hope you enjoy your trip!
