  • Operation IjenBanyuwangi is not very tourist friendly due to the distinct lack of tourists, there are only a handful of hotels and the town is free of ticket touts, tour guides and taxi drivers offering you every service imaginable. We ended Posted by mktravels in M&K World Tour 2 | Dec 7, 2014
  • Gili T across to UbudThe fast boat departure from the Gili Islands was as slick as our arrival and a nice bonus to discover the 2 hour transfer to Ubud was included in our original ticket purchase.

  • The remote Gili IslandsAs Gili T only has about 4 things to offer, crystal clear water for great snorkeling, white sand to lie on, 30 shack type restaurants and 50 bars we thought it best to merge our four days into one blog Posted by mktravels in M&K World Tour 2 | Nov 30, 2014
