Lombok, Indonesia: How to go to GILI Trawangan from Lombok International airport?

Easiest and cheapest way! 

This is how I usually travel from the Lombok International airport to GILI Trawangan Island.

Lombok Airport – Bangsal Harbour – Gili Trawangan: Charter car – Public Boat – Cedomo. 

1) Once arrived in Lombok International airport, rent a car in the airport to Bangsal Harbour. Or, can pre-arranged the transportation with a local tour operator. Price charged: USD50 to USD60. This is standard price charged as the journey will take around 3.5 hours to Bangsal Harbour for a boat ride. The car normally can accommodate up to 6 persons.

3) When you arrive in Bangsal Harbour(not later than 6pm or there won’t be public boat) Take a boat, either public boat / charter speed boat. See the price charged in the photo below:

NOTE: USD1 = 11000rp. I will normally choose public boat. Cheaper and I am always alone.


4) If you choose to take public boat, you will get the condition as below. (see the photos)The boat ride will take about 45 minutes. For charter boat, you only need 25 minutes boat ride to arrive in Gili Trawangan Island.

 5) Now you arrive in Gili Trawangan Island. You can take a Cedomo(as per below photo) to your hotel, or can go to your hotel by walking. The island is not big. Easy to get around and you won’t get lost. NOTE: Cedomo/ Per ride is at 75000rp(USD8)

Hope the above help those who is going to GILI TRAWANGAN ISLAND through the LOMBOK INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. You do not need to do research anymore, this is the best way! Trust me. I am the tour planner in Lombok, Indonesia.
