Gilis to Bangsal Jun 15, 2013
Boat from Gili Air to Bangsal is a bit sketchy thing to board. Classic island boat from this part of the world, it is supposed to be able to carry at least 6 tons, but when you see it, you’ll understand that only parameter that “boat captain” goes by is more money. Captain is a kid, maybe around 20 year old, but obviously experienced and very chilled. What bothered me a bit is a sign on the boat that says “please keep balance of the boat”, and made me go over my electronics and repackage them in water resistant bag. Luckily that day was very calm and sea was perfect for crossing. Local transport is very cheap and 8000 will take you from Gili Air to Bangsal, from Trawangan price is 10000 and from Meno it is 9000. Be aware of hustlers on the docks. They will tell you wrong times, or they will ignore your questions about when you can get local transport. Their game is to sell you expensive tickets with speed boats or different tours.
