Fort Marlborough, Bengkulu

#1 of 18 in Things to do in Bengkulu
Built in the 18th century by the East India Company, Fort Marlborough once served as an English defensive structure, considered one of the strongest in this part of the world. Pick up a free guidebook at the entrance of the thick walls and tour the jail, ammunition storage, army housing, and an underground tunnel. Be sure to head up to the top floor for views of the Indian Ocean, and keep your eyes peeled for a few cannons still stationed there. For extra details on the attraction, consider visiting with an English-speaking guide.
