Banten Province travel guide

3.7
Shopping Malls · Beaches · Gift & Specialty Shops
Although Bantem Province is a relatively recent administrative division, the region has a long and illustrious history. When the Dutch and the British first arrived in Java in the 17th century, they landed at Banten, a great center of maritime trade and commerce at the time thanks to its thriving pepper trade. Today the only reminders of the city's former glory are a few examples of early Islamic architecture, alongside the ruins of opulent palaces and mighty fortifications of Old Banten. Natural attractions in Bantem Province include Indonesia's signature white sand beaches, coral reefs, and lush, wildlife-rich jungle, with several nature reserves and tourist parks to explore. The Sundanese cuisine enjoyed in the province features milder spices than most Indonesian food--to many a tourist's relief--and places an emphasis on fresh, sometimes raw, ingredients.
