Bengkulu

Trip Planner Asia  /  Indonesia  /  Sumatra  /  Bengkulu Province  /  Bengkulu
An area historically occupied by British forces, Bengkulu maintains a heavy anglophone influence to this day. The British primarily used the region for its profitable crops such as sugarcane, coffee, pepper, and nutmeg. Bengkulu is a quiet, friendly region and the locals here take kindly to strangers and tourists. Known for its monuments and landmarks dating back to the British colonial era, Bengkulu offers plenty to interest history buffs. Alternatively, visit one of several nearby beaches, where activities such as kayaking and surfing can be added to your Bengkulu itinerary.
