So grab a towel and head down to the sand, or grab a Frisbee or a ball for some catch. There is plenty of room to play soccer of football or volley with your family and friends!

Marvel at the cleanest undiscovered beaches or meditate into your own universe, either way the beaches have the perfect spot for everyone. Hot, hot, hot! 10 ******
  13. 13. 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.

At night, you can relax while enjoying delectable dinner, have a drink, or simply just walk the shores and hear the sound of the waves hitting on the rocks. Sea, sand, sun ****** 11
  14. 14. Matras Beach On its good days, thisbeach shines like no other in Bangka. Over 3km length and 20-30m wide this stunning beach set in Ma- tras Village, Sinar Jaya Urban Village of Sungailiat Sub- District, or at the northern east area of Bangka Island. The locals call it as their “heaven’s beach” as it is the most visited beach in Bangka Island. Stone Coast Bedaun Where else you can find a tree that can grows on rocks? This makes the #3 beach on our list that you should come and visit! 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. 12 ****** Source: Franchdalapasti
  15. 15. ****** 13 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.
  16. 16. Tikus Beach When you’re ready for your own blinding white beach and turquoise tub, head to Ti- kus Beach. This waning- crescent-moon-shaped beach, 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. 14 ******
  17. 17. ****** 15 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 moment. Penyusuk Beach 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.
  18. 18. Otak-otak Belinyu 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! Location : Jl. H. Muhidin, Sungailiat Open : All day 15.00 - 22.00 It’s all about food 16 ******
  19. 19. ****** 17 Martabak Get yourself addicted to our famous “Martabak Bangka”! It’s really tasty and cheap! We can even take hundreds and hundreds of orders in 1 day, that’s how famous they are! It’s so tender with mixing of cheese and condensed milk. Location : Jl. Jendral Sudirman, Sungailiat Open : All day 17.00 - 21.00
  20. 20. Pauw's Kopitiam Kopitiam is well-known for its hospitality and quick ser- vices. Pauw’s Kopitiam is always crowded, because it’s a perfect place to hang out with your family and friends.

  21. 21. ****** 19 Bakmi Bangka When people hear the word “Bangka”, other than beautiful beaches, the second thing that comes to their mind is the Noodles. While you’re in the neighborhood, why not try our delectable noo- dles or we call it “Bakmi” here? Most of these food is NON HALAL food because they use “Song Sui or Pig Bone” to make the stock.
  22. 22. 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 20 ******
  23. 23. ****** 21 In a blind tasting session, a French chef in Jakarta thought it as an expensive imported dried mushroom from France! 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 cap. 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- nesia!

  24. 24. Now what comes in your mind when your hear the words ‘Indonesian people’? For those who have been in Indonesia be- fore, you must have noticed how friendly and polite we are. Well, maybe some of you think ‘poor’ is the word for us, Indonesian people. That is also correct, but depite our severe eco- nomic and po- litical problems, Indonesians still remain open and friendly especially to tour- ists who come and give us a visit! For those who haven’t been in Indonesia before, you must be wondering what Indonesians are like. No, we don’t bite. Be- fore you come and get to know us personally, maybe you should know a bit about our culture first just to give you a glance: Ready to blend with the locals? 22 ******
  25. 25. ****** 23 SMILE! 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 ‘inappropriate’. The culture has been there for ages now and there’s no harm for you to remember and follow when you’re here.
  26. 26. 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). 24 ******
  27. 27. ****** 25 “HELLO MISTER!” 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, foreign visitors! 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 you. (cont.)
  28. 28. (cont.) 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 something personal. 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. 26 ******
  29. 29. ****** 27 BASA BASI 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 appointment. 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.
  30. 30. ‘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 16th century and is now being celebrated by today’s generation. 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- 28****** Source: Gaedegambarist
  31. 31. ****** 29 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 their motto. 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 meal! You can also go there and they will treat you well even though they never met you before!
  32. 32. 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. 30******
  33. 33. ****** 31 Belimau Bathing 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.

  34. 34. Chinese New Year in Bangka 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 . 32******
  35. 35. ****** 33 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 and 7th month in lunar calendar. You will smell the scent of incense over there, as it’s one of the tools they use to pray. 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 whole family. Source: Reportase Bangka
  36. 36. 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. 34 ****** Source: nana-pinguinz
  37. 37. ****** 35 Sembahyang Rebut 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. Source: Bangkabelitung123
  38. 38. “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, of course! Taking the first step 36 ****** Packing Methods 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 alternatives: 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 bottom up. 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.
  39. 39. ****** 37 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 matches everything.  Bringapairofshoes that are universal! They should match everything.  If your clothes are wrin- kled when you land then hang them in the bathroom when you shower. The steam should help lessen the wrin- kles!  Cut off all the price tags before you leave! You might have not scissors at your des- tination, and sometimes tags are really hard to get off eas- ily.  Lay out all your clothes before you pack so you can make sure you have every- thing!

  41. 41. ****** 39 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..
  42. 42.  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- rity.  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! 40****** Tips before you fly:
  43. 43.   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 get inside. 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 lost articles.   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. ****** 41 (cont.):
  44. 44. You won’t see a lot of public transportation here in Bangka. Most of the locals have their own vehi- cles.
