Bangka Belitung is one of the youngest provinces and one of the most promising up and coming tourist destinations in Indonesia. Sandwhiched between Gaspar and Karimata straits, both of these islands have spectacular beaches with white powdery sand, enchanting blue water, and humongous granite rocks scattered and guarding them.
Bangka Belitung was the country’s golden child during Dutch colonial government era because of its tin reserves. As tin depleted, Babel (as it affectionately called) faced a new era, a less enthusiastic and darker one. There was suddenly no reason to visit Babel. That was until a phenomenal book changed the course of history for Babel. Laskar Pelangi (The Rainbow Troop) helped put the province, especially Belitung, back on the tourism map. Now Babel is proudly welcoming visitors and showing off its unique culture and exceptional natural beauty.

Belitung was and still is a quiet fishing village that humbly captivates visitors through its natural beauty and unique Malay culture. Be mesmerized by the scenic view of Tanjung Tinggi, Tanjung Kelayang, Bathing Birds, Batu Belayar, and Tanjung Binga beaches. Lengkuas island, a short boat ride away, hosts a historic lighthouse, a landmark left by the Dutch during the colonial times.
Bangka is the perfect getaway for sun worshippers. Parai Tenggiri and Matras or Paradise beaches are two of the most attractive in the island. Kampong Gedong, Tirta Tapta Hot Spring (excellent spot for people with health-related issues), and the Tin Museum are other points of interest. Shopping for Bangka’s traditional cloth, Kain Cual, is also a must do!
Hiring a car and driver is the best way to explore Belitung. Circling the island is doable in just a day, but having an experienced local guide would definitely come in your favor, because taxi or other public transportation is not known in Belitung.
The best time to visit Bangka Belitung is between February to June. During this dry season the water is calmer and weather is nicer, perfect for outdoor activities and boat rides.
Being surrounded by sea, Bangka Belitung sees an abundance of seafood almost year-round. The Chinese influence is strong in the creation of local dishes, especially in Bangka where the Chinese population is larger. Some of the most beloved dishes from the region is Belitung noodles served with savory prawns and Gangan, a curry-like dish without coconut milk.
