Belitung, Tanjung Pandan

Belitung, atau Belitong (bahasa setempat, diambil dari nama sejenis siput laut), dulunya dikenal sebagai Billiton adalah sebuah pulau di lepas pantai timur Sumatra, Indonesia, diapit oleh Selat Gaspar dan Selat Karimata. Pulau ini terkenal dengan lada putih (Piper sp.) yang dalam bahasa setempat disebut sahang, dan bahan tambang tipe galian-C seperti timah putih (Stannuum), pasir kuarsa, tanah liat putih (kaolin), dan granit.

Serta akhir-akhir ini menjadi tujuan wisata alam alternatif. Pulau ini dahulu dimiliki Britania Raya (1812), sebelum akhirnya ditukar kepada Belanda, bersama-sama Bengkulu, dengan Singapura dan New Amsterdam (sekarang bagian kota New York). Kota utamanya adalah Tanjung Pandan.

Trip to Belitung was starting on the 19th to 22nd of November.
First day we left very early to catch the flight around 6 am.
Once we arrived, we collect the rental motorbike at the airport then started driving to the hotel in Tanjung Kelayang area, which is on the north-west tip of the island.
After we early checked-in, we explore the area in Tanjung Kelayang.
The 2nd day we do islands hopping. We made a stop first on Lengkuas Island, continued with 2 snorkeling spots then Kelayang Island.
While the 3rd day, we explored the city, local foods, etc.

Last day, we left early as well. So we did nothing but driving back from the north to the airport.
