    Selama di pulau Leebong saya dan teman2x stay di tenda biar lebih terasa suasana adventure-nya. Ternyata di dalam tenda sudah ada 2 alat pendingin dan 1 alatpengusir nyamuk elektrik. Untuk Kamar mandi tentu saja kami harus menggunakan dengan tamu yg lain (sharing bathroom) tapi ternyata it is beyond than our expectation. Kamar mandinya bersih, terawat, tersedia pula sabun dan shampoo, wah pokoknya harus dicoba deh kalo menginap disini pilih yg tenda. Aktivitasnya banyak, makanan enak, dan serunya kalau malam kami sempat diberikan kesempatan untuk menerbangkan lampion. Seru!! Sayang kami terlalu lelah untuk melakukan aktivitas "nyuluh" mencari ikan/udahng kecil di pantai pada malam hari. Kalau ditanya mau balik lagi atau tidak? jawabannya PASTI BALIK!! Pulau ini bisa dikategroikan as a "Friendly Island for kids as well". Pantainya yg landai dan panjang , pasir putih yg hampir tidak ada koralnya bikin anak2x save buat dibiarkan main di sini. View nya? Definitely breathtaking view!

    Belum pernah sih ke pulau Lebong, kayaknye enak, sempat lihat acara MTMA di TransTV. Belitung memang menakjubkan, masih ada hampir 200 pulau-pulau kecil yang belum dijelajahi.
