As for the 26th anneversary trip I asked my wife which destination has in mind, and without a moment of blinking an eye, she told Gili Tranwangan, a small island near by Bali. Flew from San Francisco, trasit at Incheon to Bali Denpasar airport, it was already after midnight.
After a short sleep at one of Airport hotel, it took another half a day to get to Gili T. island. You may not very happy with traffic, smell of old diesel van in Bali, but once you get on a speed boat to Gili you already will be pleased.
I guess the Gili T. island is one of best with great beaches, snorkling, foods and most of all good peoples there.
Loved the infinite pool at the villa in Bali. Missing Bali and Gili T.
