My friends and I will be visiting Gili Trawangan next month, and as the hotel transfer is super expensive, we have decided to book a private driver (friend recommended) to fetch us from the airport to the jetty.
I would like to confirm if the jetty to Gili is Bangsal Jetty? Is there anything I should look out for, or tell the driver where to stop, when we reach Bangsal Jetty?
We decided to take public boats to Gili T (as the speedboat the driver quoted was quite expensive too). I read that we have to buy the official tickets (which costs about 13,000rupiah) inside a white building, and that the public boats runs every hour. May I know which port we should wait at for the public boat to Gili T?
Finally, when we reach Gili T, we would like to take the cidomo to Aston Sunset. Any idea how much the cidomo would roughly cost to Aston? We only have one hand-carry luggage per person.
We're quite nervous as we've heard stories from people who had visited that locals will try to cheat you where possible, so we thought we should research in advance to avoid any unnecessary incidents. I would appreciate any advice!
Many thanks in advance!
