Beach Tour 59
OCTOBER - NOVEMBER 2022: OVERVIEW: In my previous post (Gili Trawangan – Indonesia – Getting There) I talked about how to get to and find accommodation in Gili Trawangan (GiliT). You can check out 12Go to have a look at ‘getting there’ options: It is assumed that you plan to be here for 60 days … arriving with a standard 30 day Visa On Arrival (VOA), then extending your VOA by another 30 days. This gives you upto 60 days for your GiliT ‘experience’. … now let’s talk about what it is like to ‘live’ here … PLEASE NOTE: The […]

Padang Bai – Indonesia – GRANDPAcking Costs

Amed is only 30km north of Padang Bai so I decided to rent a scooter and have a look at Amed in advance. A bit like I did with Kep whilst staying in Kampot. WHAT I FOUND: I found another Kep… Albeit a lot more compact. Amed is, effectively, a string of holiday resorts that stretch about 10km along the coastline broken only by the rise and fall of the coastline between the crescent bays. There is no […]
