15 minutes to get there, 15 seconds to finish! Grab a photo opportunity- that's it! Photos look heaps better than real-life, can't wander into the place.. just for a photo shot. Rather disappointing.

I was super excited to see the white islands with blue water as shown in some of the tripadvisor pics. But to my utter dissapointment, the lake was fenced from all sides and excavation of kaolin was happening in full swing. It didn’t look any...More

If you’re passing by - stop for a five minute - if that - look. Still trying to figure out why this is considered a tourist destination. The colours are nice - I guess. But it’s set in an area where there is active mining...More

People drop for 5 - 20 minutes only to take pictures and go, there is no supporting facilities, example : toilet, cafe, canteen and if the weather is clear then the sun will be extra hot !

Fail. You can only look from the edge. You can longer go down to the water. There is a sign forbidding going down due to landslides. It’s more of a glorified puddle than a lake.

It os actually not a real lake...just an active mining area . The actual view is just average because not big area. But amazingly the picture taken so nice.

I have visited Kaolin Lake in Bangka island and found that this Kaolin Lake in Belitung island is much smaller and not colorful! Just passed by and take a look, not much to see and enjoy. 10 minutes of your time should be enough.

It is really hot but for the time it depends of what kind of color of the Kaolin Lake that you looking for. If you want to see the Tosca one, you should visit it in the noon. Because if you visit it in the morning or... More
