Benkulu is a Province of Indonesia, and also its capital and largest city, facing the Indian Ocean on the SW coast of Sumatra. Bengkulu is home to many natural resources such as coal and gold, and has large potential geothermal resources. It lies in an active earthquake and tsunami region (the Sunda Fault), and is surrounded by active and extinct volcanoes. Tigers and elephants wander through the remains of the original rainforest, where exotic rafflesia's and orchids grow.

The region is home to many indigenous groups. Its European visitors were Portuguese, Dutch, then English (who build Fort Marlborough that still stands), Dutch again, then Japanese during WWII. Sukarno married and lived here (he designed a local mosque). The economy centres on coal mining, fishing and agriculture. Visitors will look over Fort Marlborough, Sukarno (‘Bung Karno’) House, Fatmawati House, China Town, Panjang Beach, Linau Bintuhan Beach, Sungai Suci Beach (and there are umpteen other beaches), the Old British Cemetery (the British East India Company graveyard of malaria victims), the Thomas Parr Monument to name a few.

Ask around to see if there’s a Rafflesia Arnoldi flowering – one metre across. Some residents that have Rafflesia on their private property are encouraged to save the flowers and charge a small fee to see them. Found here and in Borneo, it is the largest individual flower on earth. It has a very strong and horrible odour of decaying flesh. You must eat (and smell) some durian fruit too! Kelapa muda water, a tropical coconut water, is a nice treat.
