As you guys have known (if you follow my Instagram, if not please do so) I went to Belitung Island which located in South Sumatera nearby Singapore. It was so much fun.The island is such a beauty. I went there with a group of five famous Instagramers who have ton of followers. We took the flight from Singapore to Belitung Island. It was just a 40 minutes flight. I stayed there for 4 days and 3 nights.
MTN Getaways is so helpful in term of buying the tickets, hotel, and transportation. It was a smooth journey. I arrived at night, after checked in at the hotel I straightly went for din din din dinners! Guess what for dinner? Seafood galore! OMG. I just have to write a separate entry for the foods. You can read it here.
Back to the story, the next morning after breakfast, we went for the city tour. The first stop is the SD Laskar Pelangi, it is a school from the Laskar Pelangi’s film. The film is about how Andrea Hirata is fighting for education. It was so hard back then to get a proper education, despite that, he believed that he must fight for it for a better life. This motivates me to keep improving myself, if he can do it in such condition, I have no right to complaint. You can Google the film if you want to watch it.
After that, we went to Dermaga Kirana and took a lot of photos. Dermaga Kirana is such a beautiful place that is currently under development for a resort. I’ll insert some of my fav shots here.
Next spot is the, Museum KATA Andrea Hirata. It’s a museum about Andrea Hirata, his famous quotes & his books. This Museum also has a lot of beautiful place to take photos. I love it. Above all, I really like this one quotes from Andrea Hirata,“Dream for God will embrace your dreams”. I think it’s such a beautiful one for a dreamer like me.
We also went to another places such as Kampong Ahok & Tourism Center. Watch my vlog to see more! And then we went for such a good lunch at such a beautiful place. After that we went back and free time for us. I decided to dip myself into the pool at the hotel.
The next day is the time for Island Hopping, I am soooo excited for this. We went to Pantai Kelayang Beach and start tanning right away. There’s a light house at the beach but no I am not gonna climb it. Let’s leave the hard work to the drone shall we 😛
And I got some DMs asking, did I do an outfit change at the beach? Well, hell YES! Hahaha I brought my fav white dress to the beach. #AnythingfortheGram You can watch the outfit change in my vlog.
After getting high at the beach, we went to Kepayang Island for lunch. Another seafood galore. Just read my other entry after you finished this one. After a good lunch, we went for snorkeling at Lengkuas Island. It was my first time doing snorkeling and I was clinging to the float and life jacket for dear life. I was so not cool. #shame ;(
Next, we went into a cave nearby the beach and it such a good spot to take photos. We were risking our gadgets to get all the good shots. It’s all worth it. I am not such a sporty person but I am glad I challenged myself and went into the cave.
After almost a day at the sea, we went back to the land and we got to catch the sunset. Straightly went for dinner after that & went back to hotel to rest. A tiring day but so worth it. Gonna do it again and again.
Last day at Belitung, after breakfast we went to Rumah Adat Belitung and Danau Biru before we catch the flight back to Singapore. Oh not to forget we stopped by to eat Mee Belitung before we say goodbye to this “Maldives of Indonesia”.
It was such a great trip, I am so glad that I could make it on board. Thank you so much to MTN Getaways for keeping up with me and the rest. They made my trip worthwhile. I am keeping all the memories in my heart forever! (& on my gram of course:P)
Here’s my vlog during the trip. Enjoy! Read about the food here.
