7 Fun Things You Can Do in Belitung – ipadguides

Thanks to a promo ticket whose price no longer smells like promos — thank you to the Minister — I was finally able to get to Laskar Pelangi Island. What do I do there? Let’s scroll down bro~

Play on the beaches of Kece Belitung such as Tanjung Kelayang and Tanjung Tinggi in the north of Tanjung Pandan City. The beach you see when you watch the Laskar Pelangi movie is Tanjung Tinggi Beach.

You can imagine being a member of Laskar Pelangi on Tanjung Tinggi beach…

Say you’re a coastal boy!

Eat typical Belitung foods such as Belitung noodles (Noodles mixed with shrimp, bakwan, pieces of tofu, bean sprouts, potatoes, and doused in a savory and thick shrimp sauce). There’s also Gangan (fish soup seasoned with fresh herbs) and Hoklopan (which turns out to be just another name for sweet martabak. What do you think because there are so many people waiting in line to buy).

The most popular Atep Belitung noodles here. Don’t forget to order the fresh key lime ice.

Enjoying sunrise or sunset in Tanjung Pandan city? Try to go to Tanjung Pendam beach. This beach is a bustling downtown beach.

Sunset is also possible, this is from the Aston Belitung hotel swimming pool

Don’t forget to go around the small islands around Belitung. By renting a boat from Tanjung Kelayang, you can see giant granite stones that are magically shaped.

Like the stone called sailing Belitung..

Or visit the island of Gosong which is full of starfish. Don’t hold them like other tourists, sorry for him.

If you have more stamina, try climbing the lighthouse on Galangal Island which has 18 floors. You will see a very cool sight.

No need to use a drone to take pictures of the island of galangal from above.

You can also snorkel. Even though it’s not very good. Too bad the coral reefs are used to anchor ships.

The streets of Belitung are fun. Quiet, smooth, and just around the island. “If there is a thief on a motorbike or car, they certainly won’t be able to hide for long. That’s why it’s safe here,” a parking attendant told me. So many were speeding, that there were warning boards everywhere that said something like: “DON’T RACE, FAMILY WAITING, HOSPITAL IS AWAY!”

The road around the Manggar, this is the narrowest and not very good road. On a good road I was driving so no photos.

“Mun lum drinking coffee until Manggar.” “You are not in manggar until you have a cup of (Manggar) coffee. The tradition of drinking coffee while gathering and making jokes in coffee shops has existed in Belitung since ancient times.

There are also many coffee shops in Tanjung Pandan, such as the ake coffee shop or konng djie, but my favorite is the Manggar because it’s not too sour. Taste.

Visiting the replica of SD Muhammadiyah in Gantong and stopping by the Museum, said Andrea Hirata. Imagine that you used to go to school in a place that almost collapsed.

Manggar became a literary city starting from this museum?

Shop for typical Belitung souvenirs. For me, only two are mandatory: Manggar coffee and key citrus syrup!

This KUMKN Gallery is one of the complete souvenir centers in Tanjung Pandan.

Thanks for reading!

Oh yes, I found a lot of cute cats on the Tanjung Tinggi beach, convey my greetings if you go there!
