    Hi Elizabeth,

    I was planning to head back to Bangsal (I will be staying in Senggigi for the duration of my trip) as late as possible from Gili T.

    Do you know what time does the last boat depart Gili T for Bangsal? I know that the public ferry departs by 4PM, which is really early. Is there any way to depart Gili T at say after 6PM?

    Thanks,

    Praveen Kumar

    Hi! Thanks for your great advice. I’ve already booked my flights to Denpasar thinking of heading to Amed with my kids before going to the Gili’s…. But it’ll be January and I do want to miss the choppy seas if possible… So how do I get to Lombok from Denpasar (where we land)? Or should I just stick to the Amed plan?

    Last week we took the public boat (now 12,000 IDR) from Bangsal to Gili Air. Perhaps we were lucky but we pulled up anchor after less than a 5 minute wait. It definitely does not take two hours form harbor to harbor. It is more like 15 or 20 minutes. The public boat is similar to all the boats that the diving schools in the Gilis use. We were the only non-Indonesians on the boat but I suspect because most foreigners are brainwashed by people trying to sell them more expensive services to cover the same route.
