For the city in Northern Thailand, see Lampang.
Accommodation is relatively undeveloped in this remote region of Lampung Province, and few people are fluent in English. Nevertheless a visit to Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park, or surfing at Karang Nyimbor, Tanjung Setia, is highly recommended.
A charming native hostel, or losmen, has recently opened in Tanjung Setia, some 20km south of Krui. Kepalas Losmen welcomed the writer of this review with brand-new bedding, fried bananas and hot coffee.
Rp. 150,000/person (about USD 14 at current rates) includes three Indonesian meals. The losmen is within sight of a vast white sand beach, and is on the main road from Krui south to Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park and Kota Agung. The world-renowned surf site is less than a kilometer away.
