Adventure in Laskar Pelangi



Laskar Pelangi or The Rainbow Troops is a 2008 Indonesian film adapted from the popular same titled novel by Andrea Hirata. The movie follows a group of 10 schoolchildren and their two inspirational teachers as Gantong Village on the farming and tin mining island of Belitung off the east coast of Sumatra. The Adventure I had is from the inspiration of popular novel and film.  The islands features Dutch colonial architecture and a colorful harbor. Pulau Lengkuas, one of many small offshore islands, has a 19th-century lighthouse and snorkeling among its coral reefs.


An elementary school with a million stories and memories in it, became very famous in the village of Gantong Belitung Timur and even now able to attract many tourists to come and remember the story of Laskar Pelangi behind it all. Yes, SD Laskar Pelangi is the replica of SD Muhammadiyah which is actually the elementary school told in the story of Laskar Pelangi.


Dream for God will embrace your dreams! But unlike the meaning of words that I encountered during a visit to the Museum of Kata Andrea Hirata in Belitung, because for him, those who can appreciate dreams will be appreciated by this life.



From the name Batu Berlayar, the island that became one of the favorite tourist destinations island hopping in Belitung is indeed resembles a ship that is sailing, as the impact of a large granite rock that stands vertically and shaped like a ship, with his island as his ship. Therefore, the island is located close to Tanjung Pandan Belitung is then called Batu Berlayar Island.


Lengkuas Island is one of the prima donna tourism in the province of Bangka Belitung Islands.
This island is one of hundreds of islands that surround Belitung Island.


The main attraction on this island is an old lighthouse built by the Dutch colonial government
in 1882. Until now, the lighthouse is still functioning properly as a guide of ship traffic
through or out of Belitung Island.

Belitung is an Indonesian island east of Sumatra. Its main island’s beaches, including Tanjung Tinggi and Tanjung Kelayang, are known for their rounded granite boulders, fine sand and calm waters.  If you want to travel here you can go from KLIA or klia2 to Jakarta and then transit with local airlines to Tanjung Pandan, the island’s largest town.
