The location for filming 'Laskar Pelangi' in Tanjung Tinggi....
Ah, Paradise in Tanjung Tinggi
Huge rocks all around the coastal edge make for stunning scenery
White sand, crystal clear water, granite rocks, blue skies.... perfect!
Beautiful secluded area of beach
View from on top of a huge granite rock
This area of Tanjung Tinggi is surrounded by traditional beach hut cafes... love it!
I LOVE this rock.... wkwkwkkw
What can I say?? YUUUUUUM
View to outside of the 'Lor-In' accommodation
Ooooh... after searching everywhere we finally found the school from 'Laskar Pelangi'... after reading the book (one of my new favourites) and watching the film, this building was a little disappointing.... a replica which has been made and tucked away in the middle of nowhere... Happy to have found it at last though..
Cruising with the family outside of Manggar
Palm Trees = Beach = Heaven!
I don't think this area receives many vistors... at Tanjung Batu
Sorry, just happy with the sight of more palm trees...

Open Pit - Kelapa Kampit - this area was used by Australian company BHP Billiton (1971-1985) and later handed over to German company Preussag GmbH of Hannover as their main operation field for tin mining activity until late 1989.
