Bangka is an Island that has many interesting spots especially its beaches and food hunting. The only thing that the government still need to work on is to give more directions for traveller that want to visit some of the tourism site.
I could imagine that if I had to drive around myself, I will find so many difficulties in reaching my destinations. Moreover, some accommodation facilities need to be inspected to make sure they have the quality that will satisfy tourist. We got so disappointed with the cleanliness of the hotel we stayed in Parai.
Bangka is the good places for Relaxation, not crowd, the sea food very good fresh and tasty, the beach are pretty and some good places for visit such as; ant Hill, parai Beach, Tanjung Pesona Beach, and many more.
you should go to matras beach, eat in pasir padi's beach resto, parai beach jet ski, banana boat, parasailing eat seafood at mr adox or asui eat bangka food at jalan kampung bintang buy fish cracker
nice view..and beach This Nice institution is dedicated to the sea and has a rich history, bringing pleasure to our demanding regular clientele as well as passing celebrities.
renown restaurant has always been run by the same family. brings you fresh fish grilled over a log fire (sea bass, sea bream, capon, John Dory, etc…), crayfish or slipper lobsters, lobsters and bouillabaisse (to be ordered in advance) which are worth the trip just for themselves.
This island made me fall in love at th first sight. It has the most beautiful beaches around the island if you mind to travel into the remote village area.
Really love it to be there.
Bangka is the border between two culture, Melayunese and Chinese, for culinary you can dining chinese cook, seafood, and great sightseing beaches as parai.
Rent a Car and travel to some chinese village in Belinyu and try their snack localties empek empek bakar.
We went at the wrong time of year as we wanted to visit the beaches and go swimming and snorkelling and the weather wasn't suitable for these activities.
The wet weather, lack of public transport and the fact that at this time of year the hotel offered no trips or tours meant that we really didn't see much.
Go to Parai Beach Hotel for beach activities & relaxation. The children love the sandy beach. Foods are tasteful with fish ingredients around the town.
Dine in a boat at Pasir Padi beach is also great,
There are a couple beach around bangka. White sand and light blue water is every where. Make sure you prepare sun-block to protect your skin.
Public Transporation is very seldom, make sure you arrange for car rental before drop by here. If you food hunter, try otak-otak, pempek and other sea foods here. Bring your medicine just in case you have food-allergic.
bangka is the island at sumatra just 1 hour from jakarta by plane, and at there are a lot of beautiful beach with a wonderfulll big rock
you should brings sunblock, map, any kind, and must be carefull to choice the driver because some of driver so crazy to drove his car.
have a nice trip.
Bangka is lovely island to visit. Good for family and group traveling for leasure. Beautiful sands and beaches, even better than Bali
nice city except lack of public transportation for moving around the city.it would be best if the city provide city taxi or becak.
Be careful with those private taxi around the airport.
Nice town with minimum shooping mall & nightlife. But it's good for you and family trip. Nice food and many variety of food.
Only sightseeing in beach area.
Many beaches that really amazing me,..should better management in the future to attract the tourist from all over the world
When you stay more than one nights in the hotel, make sure you get all of the information of the city, visit the beach.
.. Bangka Islands has more than five beaches that you can visit.... the view of the beaches were amazing....
Bangka gives top culinary local food ( martabak, otak otak, es kacang merah, mie bangka, lempah kuning , abon ikan)
the foods were really nice and Bangka is a culinary place especially for seafoods, they tasted real good.
there were not really many places for panorama or sight-seeing. But, the culinary was pretty great.
this city is known for the beautiful beach for sightseeing. you can have a beach water activities here.
great for family traveling and the seafood is excellent, must try. if you like crackers (the local say 'kerupuk'/'kemplang') bangka provide the best kerupuk in Indonesia in my opinion.
It's a quiet city. If you travel here, you better find a tour guide or any local friends to guide you.
The food is delicious. In Pangkal Pinang, there are lots of good food that you can try and they're not far away from each other. To visit beach, it takes 1-2 hours to reach there (depends from where you start), but it's worth the journey. Most of the beach is calm and no big waves. What makes the beach in Bangka unique is that most of the beach has large rock on the shore. You can have picnic with your family in some quiet beach (e.g. pantai Tikus, Pantai Romodong) and your kids can play in the beach safely.
Nice city... Perfect food... If you are searching for shopping place, it's not a good place to go...
