Primarily for history buffs

What we say: 3 stars

Not far from a few of the budget accommodation options in town is the interesting Dutch Cemetery, Makam Belanda Peneleh.

The expansive grounds of the cemetery contain the remains of many of the former Dutch colonial masters from years gone by and it is now preserved as a rarely visited tourist draw.

If you're interested in this side of Indonesia's past, this place will give you hours of pleasure as you wander through the well-kept graveyard. For others, it will be a 10-minute stroll of only passing interest.

The locals claim that the ghosts of the dead come out at night and that it is a downright scary place after dark. Sounds like most cemeteries to us.
