  • Magnificent fortresses, unique culture, a traditional game of disangkut pautkan with it mystical, also the last one is the sea that lies around it clean and clear. Bamboo game crazy takes us on an unforgettable experience. Discussion of the sea are also quite interesting where clean and crystal clear sea makes us able to see directly the coral and fish swim without diving. Hmm so want actual nyebur

  • The castle was founded by the DUTCH in 1624. Standing in front of the beach of Hila. To get into these attractions, visitors have to fill out a guest book and ' compulsory ' voluntary contributions to guard the fortress. Inside the fortress of Amsterdam there is barely anything that could be seen in addition to an empty room on the 1st floor and 2nd floor, as well as the natural landscape on the 3rd floor. Collection of butterflies in the frame displayed on the 1st floor, hardly relevant to the history of the fortress. Only photos Rumphius in container plate and two statues of Portuguese soldiers in front of the building, which can be seen by visitors. While the historical record about the fortress could not be seen at all, besides the inscription inside the fortress.
