Whats in the Krui & Tanjung Setia area.

Krui and Tanjung Setia are located in a large agricultural area, towns and villages service the local community of rice farmers, fisherman and farmers of the Damar agroforest. Tourism is not a primary industry only small pockets are developed and visited mostly by travelers from Bandar Lampung and international surfers.

You will not find a Bali style tourist experience here, no Mc DonaldĀ“s, Starbucks, Burger Kings, air-conditioned shopping centers or markets filled with tourist trinkets. What you will find is an amazing coastline of sandy beaches and coconut palms nestled at the base of the Bukit Barisan National Park.

Here there is no defined tourist map to follow, no schedule to keep, no postcards to buy and send home. The day often closes with a strange feeling that an unchartered exploration has occurred and that it could occur again tomorrow.
