Why visit Belitung?
As surprising as it may seem, Belitung, the island known as the biggest mining conglomerate on earth, is one of the most stunning in all of Southeast Asia.
However, world-class beaches without the gridlock and crowds aren’t for everyone.
Who, after all, wants to spend their vacation on a deserted island where the only company they’ll have is the coconut water you drank from when it fell from the palm next to you?
The island is well-known and well-respected across Indonesia.
In fact, a famous movie of all time was filmed on the island. (No, not the one with Tom Hanks; that was a different island.) It was the most successful “Indonesian” movie, “Laskar Pelangi.”
Also, Ex-governor of Jakarta and local boy, Mr. Ahok, grew up in these parts.
Aside from quiet, tranquility, space, and isolation. There is also adequate infrastructure, gorgeous places to stay equipped with bathrooms, hot showers, the option to choose from a few fantastic eateries, and roads to drive on.
We get it. Paradise isn’t for everybody.
Besides, after a while, an island may get rather lonely. Even if you’re there with your other half, it’s beautiful yet lonely.
Still, we think desert islands to be excellent locations to stop, relax, and reflect before continuing on to the next location.
Try it for a week. We dare you.
