Gili Trawangan is the biggest island Gili with the highest income then other land in Lombok as a tourism object. They grow hard and fluently every years by the new hospitallity product has been built every moment year through indeed of the island.

Sometime in your mind the idea across direct to your idea, how can i reach Gili Trawangan Island from Lombok International Airport as we know which the island is a tiny land with classical life culture, here the tips Transportation From Lombok International Airport to Gili Trawangan

There are a million guest visited the island with high daily consumption, they rest the rubbish and need a team to care about it, here some Gilis Home Work which need to solve immediatelly to stick the totally visitor grow up every years.

1. Rubbish 

Why we should put the rubbish as the first manner, the only thing that the guests rest after they leaves are rubbish especially unorganic rubbish ( plastic, bottle & glass ).

The region government need to find the solution as soon to avoid the quantity of rubbish under control and affected to sanitation and disease.

There are 250 hotels operated in gili island with 50kg rubbish everyday then you can calculate 250 x 50 kg woowww after one year you can imagine how it all.

2. Birocration

Birocration in a central problem for a businessman or hotel owner, how can the government easier the hotel lisense and permit then easy for the investor to grow the company up.

Other else of Visitor Visa or Working Permit, there are many tourist try to transform the lisense each other, the tourist work in Gili Trawangan with tourist permit and they do not use working permit to avoid tax and regulation.

Many of them know about it but betray it, the cooperation need to connect between business owner and regional government to clear this manner ever.

As we see, when the immigration come through Gili Island every tourist hiden under the table, back to room, transform theirself as a tourist. How can this can be  continue of the regulation set hardly and discipline.

This problem was happen from the first Trawangan Tourism has been opened until know but the business owner still hide this problem to reduce their income.

One thing that we can say that please follow the indonesian regulation as you follow the rule in your home.

3. Security

Save and secure is the both things that the people need and wait for. Trawangan island island famous as non motorized island which need something more then it.

Additionally save and secure to complete this island will be a perfect island destination, for the traveller this island is a save island from human activity but do not secure doe the thief, some of the guest are stolen their bag in some place by the beach. 

The prison penalthy was not established in this island, the rule under awik-awik ( unwritten rule which stick by local people in trawangan ) this rule valid until 2016.

Every people which catch stealing a something, the leader of the island punish them to walk around the island by writing " i am a thief " on their neck, the security island hold the statement of the island

Starting 2017 after the police over-handle the regulation with legal punishment under indonesian regulation, as we see now, it affect to reduce stealing activity with prison punishment under the jail.

Hope this regulation will continue stick by the local people and regional government to make it island save and secure.

4. Facility

The island of Gili Trawangan is far from the mainland, all the material add extra cost to sailing from lombok, facility of Gili Island need to upgrade with gili eco system by always hold the nonmotorized island.

Transportation for horse cart need to add more to fully the order from the clients with a million order every years.
