Comments Leebong Island
While on the island of Leebong, my friends and I stayed in tents to get a more adventurous atmosphere. It turns out that in the tent there are already 2 coolers and 1 electric mosquito repellent. For the bathroom of course we have to use with other guests (sharing bathroom) but it turns out it is beyond than our expectation. The bathroom is clean, well-maintained, soap and shampoo are also available, wow, you should try it if you stay here, choose a tent. Many activities, good food, and he cried at night we were given the opportunity to fly lanterns. Exciting!! Unfortunately we are too tired to do "nyuluh" activities looking for fish / small fish at the beach at night. If asked whether you want to go back or not? the answer MUST BE BEHIND !! This island can be categorized as a "Friendly Island for kids as well". The beach is sloping and long, white sand with almost no coral makes children save to be left playing here. View? Definitely breathtaking view!Reply
I've never been to Lebong Island, it looks like it's delicious, I have seen MTMA on TransTV. Belitung is indeed amazing, there are still almost 200 unexplored small islands.Reply
