Motorcycle touring : the beauty of Belitung island #2

Brothers & sisters…, not too far away from Tanjung Pandan city, West Belitung, there are many beautiful beaches we can visit. These are some of the scenery that I captured using my pocket camera.

On the second day in Belitung island, I woke up at 5:30 a.m. looking outside my window I realized that the sun was about to rise. I stayed on the 9th floor and my room is facing to the East side. The sun rise could be seen clearly from my room. So I took my camera and captured several scenes of the sun rise. He is one of them

As soos as everyone was ready, we moved on heading East. The roads along the way are excellent, I checked my Ninja’s speedometer every time and then, our speed were between 90 kph – 120 kph. This was really an enjoyable ride..!!

We arrived in less than two hours, stopped by the Police station before heading for lunch.

This is how the coffee is prepared before being served

After enough rest (lunch & coffee) we moved on visiting some other places before heading back to West Belitung.

There are many other places we can visit and the local government is committed to improve tourism destinations also the infrastructures such as building more roads and even an international airport. Hopefully in a few years Belitung will be more popular and become one of the must visit island in Indonesia.
