Lombok Day 2 part II : nightlife in Gili Trawangan

    night time really comes alive in Gili Trawangan.
    Suddenly Gili Trawangan evolves from Dr Jekyll to the evil Mr Hyde

    satay @ skewers starts from IDR10k @ RM3 per pc

    street market near the jetty

    located next to Bali , influence from party-oriented Bali already penetrated
    this predominantly muslim occupied island , like this ' Magic Mushroom ' ,
    that contains psychedelic compounds mostly consumed by youngsters

    Oh , loughing gas as well.

    the original muslim community seems had lost their power to modernisation.
    Pubs and night clubs are everywhere along the coast , even 10-20 meters away
    from the central mosque.

    food in Gili Trawangan is on the higher side of the price , as expected from
    a tourist oriented place.

   The reason I came to Lombok is because I don't want to go to Bali ,
   because the place is now too crowded and overrated.
   I thought I should go to Lombok now before it's polluted by influx of tourists.
   but I was wrong.
  Gili Trawangan has already became the second Bali.
