In each village head and Kadus election the nuances of enjoyment are very strong because to be powerful in becoming a Kadus on Gili especially Gili Trawangan is like a district level election. Because to become the ruler of the authority of Gili Trawangan is like fighting over fertile land.

Because the income from 3 Gilis is huge, especially Gili Trawangan. Where every five-star hotel or bungalow class is a land that can be expected to contribute as a partner to make Gili more visitors and the impact of all of that must be a promising role.

From each levy will be managed by Kadus and become an influential person on the Gili, it is certainly very promising and has the authority to regulate and give permission for every decision, besides that Air Gili also has a better marine park among the other Gili as evidenced from every snorkeling trip always destined to Gili Air.

Gili Air has a colorful fish location for guests who snorkeling can do fish feeding or fish feeding by being fed by the visitors.

At present Gili Air has begun to improve itself by leaving the old egos to have begun a lot of physical construction in the form of accommodation accommodation buildings and hotels and restaurants.

Health facilities have also been seen by several private clinics as well as a number of young doctors who are on standby to help with treatment for the surrounding community and for foreign tourists who happen to need medical assistance.

For the cost of care and treatment is more expensive than in clinics in the city of Mataram because to build a building or rent a practice location is also very expensive, understand that living on the island everything must be brought by boat transport and so forth.

More or less the atmosphere on Gili Air is almost the same as on Gili Trawangan also on Gili Meno, the atmosphere of the coast is the same as white sand, roads also have hotel buildings for the inside and the beach side there is a restaurant that directly faces the beach.

Since March 2017 all buildings on the beach have to be demolished because it is very disturbing in terms of aesthetics because the beach land becomes privately owned land or becomes land owned by the restaurant because every tourist sitting on the beach feels uncomfortable and uncomfortable even the restaurant waiter will come over to offer a menu food and Drink.
