Well, frankly speaking, Bengkulu doesn't have many things to offer for tourists. Fort Marlborough is definitely a must-visit site in the city. There are some small museum inside it showing the history of British footprint in the past.

You can see the ocean from this fort. Beautiful scenery. The staff were friendly and accommodating. You can find some student try to approach you speaking in English explaining the history of Fort Marlborough.

This is a well preserved piece of history.
The staff were very pleasant.
Unfortunately the additional information about the rooms and items on display was lost on us as all in Malay!
Would have maybe been nice to see a recreation of what some of the rooms would have looked like while in use.
