Trip Planner Asia  /  Indonesia  /  Sumatra  /  Bengkulu Province  /  Bengkulu
(3/5 based on 400 reviews for 9 attractions)
Things to do: historic sites, beaches, museums
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.

Where to stay

A range of hotels and "losmens" (Indonesian for "lodgings") are available in Bengkulu, from the budget-friendly end of the scale to slightly more luxurious three- to four-star hotels. Plenty of options exist within the town center, as well as along the scenic coastline. Consider one of the many seaside guesthouses for a relaxing alternative to the bustle of town.
