Gili T is the largest of the three Gili islands near Lombok. It has all the restaurant and nightlife offerings of Boracay in the Philippines but with the relaxed, friendly, tout-free vibe of the Perhentian islands in Malaysia. There are no cars or motorbikes on the islands, just horse-pulled carts and creaky wooden boats to take you on island-hopping snorkeling tours. If you're in the neighborhood and want a couple of days on a beautiful beach somewhere a bit less developed than Bali
, the Gilis are worth a stop.
