Limited information and
difficult access make you
feel there’s no reason for
you to travel there.
It was true. People used to
find a hard time to gather all
the info about this place
plus Bangka used to be a
spot to isolate a lot of pris-
oners Including our very first
President of Indonesia,
But now, as the world is so
high-tech and everyone’s
best friend is Mr. Google,
you can so easily find real-
quick access to Bangka and
all the info you need to know!
Now, it’s not as bad as it’s heard, people!
It’s not hidden, it’s not isolated and it’s definitely not
poor. Bangka is one of the largest tin and white pep-
per producers in the world. Plus they can actually
plant a variety of fruits and other crops as well.
Rice cannot be planted there; people cannot make a
living out of Bangka Island.

It’s been said that the world is a small place, but believe us
when we say that there are plenty of powdery, soft and glistening
white nooks and crannies to escape to.
Under the warmth of sun and along the breaking waves of
the Western Indonesia coastline, these beaches lay empty, await-
ing your footprints.
Parai Tenggiri Beach
Surrounded by gallstones make you can’t simply miss this as-
tonishing beach! Located in Matras Village, Sinar Jaya, Urban
Village of Sungailiat Sub-District, you can just stop by after vis-
iting Matras Beach. The Locals used to call it Hakok Beach,
and it used to be the most popular area to visit.
Parai Beach, is a unique destination unto itself, where shop-
ping, dining, sports, recreation and entertainment abound. Like
gorgeous natural decorations, there are so many rocks on this
At night, you can relax while enjoying delectable dinner, have

The locals call it as their “heaven’s beach” as it is the most

This makes the #3 beach on our list that you should come
The fact that there is a tree growing on rocks was believed
that this is where the name ‘Batu Bedaun’ Beach came from. It’s
also located in Kampung Bukit Kuala, Sinar Jaya Urban Village
of Sungailliat Sub-District.
Teluk Limau Beach
You may probably tired of doing some usual activities on the
beach like swimming, sunbathing, surfing or diving. Why don’t come to
Teluk Limau Beach? It’s actually a beautiful small bay with some
boats in it, about 5 km away from Sungailiat.
You can see coconut trees grow on the way to the bay; the shore
is surrounded by granite stones; and you can also see fishermen from
local village hitching their boats.
Coral reef grows on this bay, inviting some researchers and stu-
dents from Bangka Belitung University often do some research here.
Teluk Uber Beach or Uber Gulf Coast‘
I don’t want the whole seashore to myself—just enough of it to find
tranquility. I want to hear the thunder of the surf, not the drone of a
CD player on a beach blanket 10 feet away. I want to inhale the salt
air, not the scent of suntan lotion.’ Have you ever felt this way before?
Uber Gulf Coast may not as famous as other beaches in the area
Sungailiat, but it is a perfect place for you who wants to go break away
from the crowd! Located in Rambak Village, Srimenanti Urban Vil-
lage of Sungailiat, you will be astonished at how blindingly white the
sand is, beautiful curve of a typical rocky beach, the clear blue sky—
your own private eden.
When you’re ready for
your own blinding white beach
and turquoise tub, head to Ti-
kus Beach. This waning-
located in Rebo Village,
Kenanga Urban Village, Sun-
gailiat, is best for solitude.
Tanjung Pesona Beach
Choosing just one
beach in Bangka Island is a
nearly impossible feat.
Tanjung Pesona Beach is
not just another white-
sandy beach, you can also
enjoy the Tanjung Pesona
water sports with cheap
and affordable prices, find
beautiful sea-view cottages
located just meters away
from the beach.
It’s only 9 km from Sun-
gailiat (located in Rambak Village),
so why don’t you come and have
fun for a while, maybe try your luck
with fishing as well! 3 star hotels
are available if you want to enjoy
the atmosphere of the beach in the
morning or at the end of the twi-
light, before exploring other at-
tractive places in bangka island.
Air Anyir Beach
About 15 km from Sungailiat, you can find a stretch of
sand to yourself, decorated with beautiful rocks along the
coast, there’s no harm to stop by and enjoying the view for a
Getting tired of walking the white-sand, swimming in the
crystal clear ocean, feels the wind blowing on your face, and
the warmth of the sun? Maybe not. Find Penyusuk Beach in
Bukit Ketok Village, about 77km from Sungailiat, you can
see sea turtle lays its eggs everywhere on the sand. It’s also
an ideal place if you want to experience the perfect sunset.
Ask any locals you know about “otak-otak”, and
they will tell you it’s really delicious food made of mack-
erel fish. It’s very famous in Indonesia, but everyone
knows you must try the ones in Bangka. They are
quite different here and are definitely yummier than any
other otak-otak. Grab a bite and you’re gonna want it
more and more!

beautiful beaches, the second thing that comes to their
mind is the Noodles. While you’re in the neighborhood,
why not try our

Most of these
food is NON
because they use
“Song Sui or

Great food and beautiful beaches are signatures of
Bangka. With everything your taste buds could ask for from
casual family eateries, to walk-up roadside snacks to elegant
world-class seafood, you’ll never run out new places to enjoy
food in Bangka.
One of the most popular culinary in Bangka is Lempah
Kulat, which is a culinary made of ‘Kulat’ (mushroom/fungus)
and usually is cooked with coconut milk.
Kulat means Fungus or mushroom and Pelawan is a
name of an endemic local tree. Since the special mushroom
grows only during the rainy season and they are hard to find,
they worth a lot. The price range of this unique mushroom
varies between Rp1,500,000 ($150) and Rp 2,000,000
($200) per kg, making it affordable only to the wealthy.
Only in Bangka
In a blind tasting session, a French chef in Jakarta
thought it as an expensive imported dried mushroom from
You can tell the best quality of Kulat Pelawan by the stem. It
should have a long stem that is intact all the way up to the sot
The locals use this mushroom for a special dish called
“Lempah Kulat Pelawan”—which is kind of similar to mush-
room curry—using ‘kampung chicken’ trimmings from the wing
or feet for the stock, making the dish the best curry in Indo-

Indonesians are friendly people, and it is true.
There may be times when you feel mad or pissed here
such as in traffic situations. Remember, no matter what
happens, remain calm and friendly. And smile to get
things done or apologize. It’s our lucky charm!
YOUR RIGHT HAND
The next most important
thing to remember is the use of
your right hand. Whatever you
do in public, never use your left
hand to accept or to give some-
thing. The left hand is considered ‘dirty’ or
The culture has been there for ages now and
there’s no harm for you to remember and follow when
BARE FOOT AND COOL FLOORS
Most Indonesians including Bangka people take
our shoes or sandals off before entering a house. That
makes perfect sense, because going barefoot on the
cool floor tiles is far more comfy in a tropical climate than
harassing your feet with shoes and socks.
At home most families prefer to sit on mats on the
floor. That’s how we relax,
watch TV, chat with friends,
eat and drink and sometimes
even sleep. Well, not all of us
are like that, but most of us
do, so don’t be surprised
when you see it yourself!
However, when you are in-
vited to the local’s house, you
will likely be welcomed in the
guest room where you can sit
on chairs (but with bare feet).
Interacting with Indonesians is very easy. You will
soon find out that most Indonesians, no matter the age,
class or education are interested in getting to know you,
Indonesians are talkative and friendly, they also like
to ask many questions when they feel comfy talking to
you. Some of the questions may considered ‘taboo’ or
nothing of our business, but don’t get offended and re-
member it’s only a sign that they are starting to like you,
that’s why they feel like they want to know more about
Some of the questions may even sound rude to you, but
iIf you don’t feel like sharing any information with strang-
ers, then you can politely say “I’m sorry but I’m not ready
to talk about these things yet” and change the topic im-
mediately to not make them feel guilty or embarrassed.
Others may ask your opinion on the economic or
political situation as well, such as in Indonesia, your
country or the world. So it doesn’t always have to be
To get your attention, they tend to call “Hello
Mister!”. ‘Hello Mister’ is also used to address women
as well; if you respond then a bright smile will be yours.
It won’t be long before someone invites you to come
over. Addresses and telephone numbers are exchanged.
Then, when you show up, you may be embarrassed to
know that the hosts apparently had forgotten about the
In Indonesia the ritual of inviting is known as ‘basa-
basi’. It translates best with small talk and nobody ex-
pects that you really come.
It takes some time to understand if an invitation is
basa-basi it’s real. Likewise, if you invite people, make
sure that the intended guests understand that you are
serious about the invitation.
The best way to avoid confusing situations is to
call your other local friend and ask for their help.
Now that you know a bit about the culture, let us pull
you a bit closer to locals in Bangka. Perhaps when you take
a walk along the road in Bangka, and you see several cere-
monies or festivals, you won’t be wondering what they’re do-
ing and why they’re doing it.
‘Rebo Kasan’ Ceremony
For repelling any unluckiness, the locals believe in
the ritual called “Rebo Kasan”. It’s held every last
Wednesday (Shafar), in Air Anyer Village. Rebo Ka-
san comes from the words Rebo Kasan which means the
last Wednesday in Shafar. It’s been known since the
century and is now being celebrated by today’s
The locals are still doing the tradition until now, but
several changes have been made. They start the ritual
around 9 o’clock, which is the same time as Azan.
Even though the ritual is done in front of the
mosque and is using prayers, you still can feel the mys-
Sepintu Sedulang Tradition
The locals care for each other. As a proof that they
unite as one, there’s a tradition called “nganggung” or
Sepintu Sedulang which happens to be the same as
Sepintu sedulang means ‘to unite as one’. When-
ever they’re celebrating something (during the harvest
season, wedding ceremony, and even funeral) they would
treat the invited guests (without necessarily knowing the
persons) with a huge tray filled with food. Nobody wor-
ries that they will run out of food, because they have
prepared lots and lots of
tray filled with delicious
You can also go there
and they will treat you well
even though they never met
Maulid Nabi Ceremony
Indonesia is the most Muslim populated country in
the world, we still honor and respect any other religions
though. Maulid Nabi Ceremony is when Indonesians
celebrating the birth of Nabi Muhammad SAW. It’s
been celebrated for generations, in some places such as
Keritak Village, Zed, Simpang Katis, Sinar Baru, Ke-
muja, it’s even more glorious than Eid al-Fitr.
If you are invited to one of the locals’ house on this
sacred day, don’t forget to dress up politely and you will
feel the warmth and joy as you are certainly welcomed.
Ramadhan is a special month for the Moslems; it is
the month when the locals have to repent and hope the
safety and blessing. One of the traditions is cleaning
themselves before entering the holy month of Ramadhan
by doing Mandi Belimau or Belimau Bathing. The lo-
cals believe that by holding this ceremony, their fasting
will be smoothly done and all they want can be reached.
There are also some people who do this ceremony
because they simply hope for wealth, cleverness, partner
of life, etc. And this tradition has been existed for
about 300 years ago.
Chinese New Year in
Chinese Spring Festi-
val is one of the biggest
celebrations in Indonesia.
One thing that is so beauti-
ful about Bangka Island is
the diversity of cultures. They respect each other no matter the
religion, culture and race. They celebrate diversity!
The celebration was traditionally highlighted with a religious
ceremony given in honor of Heaven and Earth, the gods of the
household and the family ancestors.
You maybe are wondering why Chinese New Year falls on
different date each year. The Chinese calendar is based on a
combination of lunar and solar movements. The lunar cycle is
about 29.5 days. In order to catch up with the solar calendar the
Chinese insert an extra month once every few years (seven years
out of a 19-yearcycle).
The celebration lasts for 15 days. You are so welcome to
join and be apart of the celebration during Chinese New Year .
Sembahyang Kubur (Chinese Grave Prayer Ritual)
As you know, Chinese have great respect for our
ancestors, so there’s a tradition where we go to ances-
tors’ graves and pray for them. It’s twice a year, in the 3rd
month in lunar calendar. You will smell the scent
of incense over there, as it’s one of the tools they use to
Some people also pray for wealth, health and lucki-
ness. They also prepare some real food in front of the
grave, with the faith it will be eaten by the spirits. All the
food later will be brought back home to be eaten by the

Sun Go Kong
You may probably heard of The Monkey King (Sun Go
Kong), a main character in the classical Chinese epic novel
“Journey to the West” written by Wu Cheng’en.
The locals cerebrate the birth of Sun Go Kong by doing a
ritual that has been done for ages. Sun Go Kong actually symbol-
izes strength, power and health. Sun Go Kong also is believed can
guard the village from evil spirits and bad luck.
You can conclude by reading any other rituals
above, that Chinese really believe in spirits, both good
and bad. On the 15th
in the 7th
month in Lunar calendar,
they believe that the gate between life and death is
opened, letting all spirits go into our world.
To avoid being disturbed by the presence of evil
spirits, they have to “send” something useful to them
through papers-formed stuffs such as money, clothing,
and any other stuffs that will eventually be burned.
“Rebut ritual” will be held in every temples in Bangka is-
land, so if you wanna come and join, feel free to do so.
Lion Dance is also
performed after the
statue has been burned
as the closing of the rit-
ual. The most visited
temple in Bangka dur-
ing this ritual is Tai Pak Kung temple, in Merawang Vil-
lage, about 13km from Sungailiat.
“A journey of a thousand miles
must begin with a single step.”
– Lao Tzu
Some travelers jam two weeks’
worth of gear in their bags for a
long weekend. Others pack a bit
too lightly and forget important
things like medicine or passports.
Savvy travelers strike the perfect
balance and bring just what they
need—with a little help from our
list of road-tested packing tips,
Taking the first step
When packing your clothes, you don’t
want to neatly fold them individually as
you would in a dresser. If you do, they will
crease when compressed. Here are a few
Rolling Your Clothes
Backpackers swear by this method.
Rolling works well with pants, skirts and
sports shirts. Lay the item face down, fold
back the sleeves and then roll from the
Fold Clothes Together
Take two or more garments, for ex-
ample trousers, and lay half of one pair on
top of the other. Fold the one on the bot-
tom over the pair on the top. Then take
the other and fold it on the top. This
gives each pair some cushion where you’ve
folded it so it’s less likely to crease or
wrinkle in the folds.
Tips & Tricks you defi-
nitely wanna know:
Try to keep all your
clothes in the same color
family! If you can’t then at
least bring one jacket that
that are universal! They
should match everything.

them in the bathroom when
you shower. The steam

Paper with Pencils/Pens
For women travelers out there, tampons are not generally used
by the local people, so it could be difficult for you to find one espe-
cially when you are going to travel in some remote areas or as the
backpackers. It would be the same if you are used to use specific cos-
metics or other toiletries.
Bring the good sunscreen for your face. You will never find any
napkin machines in any toilets in Bangka like in other countries, even
for the toilet paper most of the times. Bring bras if you are going to
wear the tight tops.
Whenever you go out, bring mineral water, a pack of tissue/
Kleenex, hand sanitizer and umbrella if you cannot tolerate the heat..
You may not pack liquid or gel
substances in your carry-on unless
they are in individual containers of
3.4 ounces or less enclosed in one
clear, quart-size, plastic, zip-top bag per passenger.
Any larger containers of liquids and gels must be
packed in your checked luggage. For more informa-
tion, you can ask Mr.Google about Airport Secu-
Be aware of restrictions on the size and number of
bags you may bring onto your flight. Many airlines now
charge a fee for every checked bag or have lowered the
maximum permitted weight limits for checked luggage.
For a clear overview of what the airlines are charging
for checked bags these days and how large and heavy
your luggage is allowed to be, read Airline Baggage
Fees on your airline’s web!
Tips before you fly:
Do not lock your checked bags except with TSA-
approved locks; otherwise, if your bag is selected for
random screening, agents will have to break the lock to
Do not over pack your bag. Screeners will have a dif-
ficult time closing your luggage if selected for inspec-
tion, which will only lead to wrinkles and the potential for
Carry all film with you onboard, as screening equipment
for checked luggage can damage undeveloped film.
Place any packed belongings you don’t feel comfortable
with strangers handling in clear plastic bags.
Do not stack books and other documents on top of each
other; instead, spread them out throughout your bag.
You won’t see a lot of public transportation here
in Bangka. Most of the locals have their own vehi-
cles. If you wanna look around town, it’s either
you’re on tour or spending some money to rent
cars or bikes. No need
to worry about the price.
They’re not too expen-
sive. Here let us give
you some information
about renting ‘em.
Time to go for a ride! Exploring the undiscovered
places on your bike and why not? It’s gonna be so cool to
feel the wind against your face, to be the king of the road!
It’s very cheap and easy to use.
Bangka is not like Jakarta, so
you don’t need to worry about
the traffic! But do prepare your
driving license whenever you de-
cide to hit the road. And put on
your helmet for your own safety.
And watch out the speed limit, in
shorter words, always be careful whenever you wanna go
for a ride.
