  • Way Kambas (elephant school) is about 2-3 hours drive from Bandar Lampung. You can ride elephanst and watch the show for a small admissino charge.
  • Krakatau is an active volcanic island in the Sunda Strait.
  • Pasir Putih Beach is a busy tourist area with beautiful reefs and very calm waves.

Some local specialities are:

  • Kripik Pisang - crunchy fried banana chips available natural, or adulterated with chocolate, cheese, strawberry, milk or a range of other flavours.
  • Kripik Raja Ikan - fish flavoured crispy fried crackers.
  • Sambal Lampung - even by Indonesian standards this sambal (spicy sauce) is fierce and fiery. Look for it freshly made at roadside vendors, or in bottled form at food stores.
