There are Risks Involved with Going There!
Beach on the west side of Pulau Berhala.
We recently returned from a trip to the island known as Pulau Berhala. We’ll write several more posts/articles about this trip in the coming weeks. Though the island is a much talked about tourist location, relatively few people go there.
This post is about the travel options to the island, and some of the difficulties we faced while going and coming from there.

Entrance to Kampoeng Radja
Kampoeng Radja is the old spelling of “Kampung Raja.” It’s meaning would be something like The King’s Village. Kampoeng Radja is a family amusement park on the west side of the City of Jambi. It is quite possibly the best maintained park in the city. The relative absence of litter, which is a common sight at most parks, was not seen. That in itself made the visit extremely enjoyable!
