Founded by PT. Sukma Alam Tourism, this Wangi Hijau destination will be very interesting for you to visit while on vacation to Belitung, especially East Belitung. The founder of Wangi Hijau himself, Tony Wijaya, stated that this destination was built by presenting a wide variety of dishes to make visitors feel at home and satisfied. Of the many varieties of these offerings, Wangi Hijau will be very appropriate as a holiday destination with family.
The Wangi Hijau destination which is categorized as agro-tourism is located in Nyuruk Village, Dendang District, East Belitung Regency. But strangely, even though it is categorized as agro-tourism and there is indeed a fruit plantation, visitors who come here cannot do fruit picking activities. You at Wangi Hijau can only buy the fruit directly at a set price. While the fruit picking is done directly by Wangi Hijau management. The most interesting fruit we can find and we buy here is pandanus coconut which is fragrant, sweet and really smells like pandanus. The pandan coconut in Wangi Hijau itself comes from Thailand. We can buy this pandanus coconut for IDR 25,000 per one fruit. In addition, we can also enjoy pandanus coconut which has been served in the form of a drink.
Not only panda coconut fruit, but here we can also find several other fruit plantations such as Thai guava, durian muntong, honey pineapple and others. Even though you can't pick fruit, that doesn't mean you can't do anything at Wangi Hijau. Because, as stated by its founder Tony Wijaya, there are various dishes that can be enjoyed by visitors to Wangi Hijau. Some of the treats at Wangi Hijau include a swimming pool, mini zoo, waterfall, sak san miaw monastery, playground and fruit plantations.
Another interesting treat that you can enjoy at Wangi Hijau is a waterfall called Bidadari Waterfall. This Bidadari Waterfall is indeed very beautiful with a combination of natural green scenery and the surrounding rocks. Despite its charming charm, this not-so-high waterfall has a deep pool. Even so deep the pool at Bidadari Waterfall makes it advisable for visitors not to jump into the pool, especially if you can't swim. The management of Wangi Hijau itself does prohibit visitors from bathing and swimming in waterfalls with the aim of preserving nature and local wisdom.
One more thing to watch out for when you are in Bidadari Waterfall is the slippery rocks around it. So when walking on the rocks around the waterfall, you have to be careful. Bidadari Waterfall itself has clean and clear water. Unfortunately the discharge of this waterfall is not fixed, because it is only there and big during the rainy season. So those of you who want to visit the Bidadari Waterfall in Wangi Hijau must avoid the dry season so that you can enjoy its charm.
To get to the Bidadari Waterfall which is in the area behind Wangi Hijau itself, you have to reach it by passing a 200 meter staircase. However, your trip to this waterfall will not be pleasant, because on the way you can find beautiful natural scenery with shady trees and cool air. For those of you who really want to swim, you can visit the swimming pool that has been provided for adults and children.
