Postcards From Beltim

BELTIM, the land of a million rainbows, is also known as Belitung Timur (or East Belitong), a regency in the eastern part of Belitong Island, Bangka-Belitong Islands province, Indonesia.  This region has now begun delegating its allure to sustainable cultural & natural resources (forget about ceaseless extraction of tin mining).

Needless to say, all pictures in this album only represent a few of many East Belitong’s unspoiled potential richness. You should pay a visit there to explore & experience it by yourself. Keep in mind that you should always be a responsible traveler wherever you are.

This Belitong’s folk song below sings about how the locals praise the river dam and the fish, enjoying them without exploitation:

Ke pice… Ke pice…
Ade jeramba gede
Aik gemuroh… Aik gemuroh
Bebue-bue

So, see you in Beltim!

 

Disgiovery yours!
