Royal Brunei Airlines has positioned Brunei’s sole international airport as a Kangaroo Route node for years. It operates this long haul via Dubai, however.

Lombok - which Gili is right for you?

In Lombok's local language, Sasak, the word “Gili” simply means “small island”. And, besides the famous three off the north coast – the ones that most of us mean when we talk about “the Gilis” – there are over thirty more Gilis scattered around Lombok. Most, however, have neither permanent inhabitants nor anywhere to stay.

Further, occasionally ropy safety standards, not to mention the currents, can make for outstanding bragging rights.
