Tanjungkarang-Telukbetung Things to Do

  • The museum

    The local museum is an eye opener into the current situation. First it presents an interesting exercise in dealing with the red tape.

  • Muslim Buddhist mish-mash

    People interested in the Muslim background of Indonesia may find it strange but here the cannon are treated differently in many ways, the most obvious in the architecture of the mosques.

  • Krakatau legacy

    What Bandar is most famous for is its proximity to one of the many volcanoes that lace the Indonesian archipelago or namely the Krakatau.

Tanjungkarang-Telukbetung Off The Beaten Path

    There are not very many options for entertainment outside of pool lounging in Bandar Lampung area. The three things to do (that is all) include surfing (100km away), Krakatau climbing (150km away) and a safari (100km away). The distances do not sound like much but they are time consuming and expensive because of the road conditions and their private character due to the lack of foreigners visitors. I will let the surf junkies go on about the best surf in the world as the local one apparently comes straight from Antarctica. The safari is actually an extra to the visit of the elephant center where you are exposed to some elephant show – not exactly what safari means. The catch is that if you want you will be granted the permission for extra moneys to go on the real thing chasing some wild elephants and other fauna but you have to be lucky in order to see anything!? After a safari in Africa where the word comes from and the animals are abundant and you have to be very unlucky not to see multitudes of them, this is a misunderstanding to say the least. The third option is the infamous Krakatau itself but again involves at least 12 hours of travel on rickety roads with the added thrill of being on a boat that most probably is hard to be called sea-worthy. That is why you get to pay insurance but guess what; the insured people are the transport guys, not the passengers, ha-ha. So if you want adventure and an expensive one embark on one of the three described above and there will be no room for disappointment.
