Gili Trawangan in Lombok region is the largest and most populated of the three established Gili Islands. Its name literally translates to an old Indonesian word for tunnel (Terowongan) and refers to a cave tunnel that was built here at the time of Japanese occupation during the Second World War. The earliest inhabitants of Gili Trawangan were fisherman and farmers from the large island of Sulawesi.

What makes the island a paradise today is that it managed to remain car-free during the era of industrialization. Even today, there are no motorized vehicles, just bicycles and the local cidomo – a small horse cart. To cruise to and from other islands, locals do however use motorboats and speedboats.
