I've been to Gili Air twice now, first in 2001 and then 2007, its really changed alot in the time.

I stayed in Bunga Bungalows in 2001 but they are now abandoned due to lack of tourists visiting as a result of the Bali Bombings.

In 2007 we stayed next door and were the only people staying in the set off bungalows, it was fantastic.
