The last thing we expected to stumble across on Gili Trawangan was a boutique vintage clothing store, but tucked away from the main drag are some of the best vintage threads we’ve seen in a while. Vintage Delivery Store is the creation of Swedish couple Natalie and Johnny and their adorable 2 Â½ year old son Noah, who sold their two vintage stores back home to relocate to the island of Gili Trawangan in Lombok, Indonesia in search of an alternative lifestyle.
Gili Trawangan in Indonesia has long been a party island destination for backpackers and young travellers alike. There are no police on the island, so Gili T governs itself. Mushroom milkshakes are proudly advertised and you’ll be offered weed, often before you get to your hotel, it’s just that kind of place.
The main harbour has more bars and restaurants than you could visit in a lifetime let alone in one trip, with loud music pumping out of varying quality stereos and sound systems. This can all get a bit much, but if you grab a bicycle and head north you’ll find some great relaxed bars on the beach; one of which is the uber-chilled surrounds of Gilinta.
