Gili Trawangan Nightlife - Best Bars and Nightclubs (Lombok) [2024]

By Tibs →
I wrote this summary of Gili Trawangan nightlife (Lombok) after spending 3 nights there in May 2024. I had not visited the island in almost 10 years, and yet it didn't change much. It is just a bit more crowded, more expensive and dirtier.  Most visitors are young Westerners between 20 and 30 years old. Among them, many are couples on their honeymoon or backpackers on a 6-month Southeast Asia tour. The latter aren't as numerous as in Bali or Thailand, probably because of the prices (overall you'll spend twice as much in the Gili's). They tend to stay for a short period of time only, on their way to other parts of Indonesia. The ones who stay longer usually work in diving centers and form the only real expat community on the island. Don't know anyone in the Gili's and you want to meet people? Check the Gili T Pub Crawl  which takes place every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday starting 7PM at  Tir Na Nog bar.
