The Silence and Beauty

On the outskirts of Amoi city, Singkawang, blooms an unparalleled beauty.

A smallest island, known as Simping, stands as a symbol of unforgettable charm within the allure of the Pasir Panjang tourist area.

Implicit in the tranquil nature, Simping, though not yet graced by the MURI record, stands proudly as the smallest island in the world, embracing the mystery of its beauty and solitude.

The exoticism of the island is not only represented by its trees and land but also in every carefully placed rock, like untouched works of natural art. The tireless sea, singing a melancholic song, marks Simping's presence as a masterpiece that harmonizes with nature.

A single coconut completes the green civilization of the island. A few mangrove trees dance gracefully, welcoming the gentle breeze.

A handful of land, like a gem, accompanied by layers of stones and shells silently witnessing the ages. All of these make Simping a manifestation of undeniable natural exoticism.

Let's not forget the wooden bridge that crosses, cutting through the blue sea around it.

A path to a small world that holds secrets and tales of adventure. The bridge, more than just a wooden structure, is a silent witness to every step of visitors who come to feel the pulse of life on this island.

In one literary journey, I immersed myself in the life of the Mayor Singkawang, Tjhai Chui Mie, in the embrace of this small island.

Memories of the past flashed back when Simping was our, the teenagers', playground under the shadows of coconut and mangrove trees. Camping at night, with the sound of waves as the soothing melody.

Invitation to Tourism

With all its charm, Simping does not forget to invite travelers to enjoy more than just a natural panorama.

Go and witness the sunset illuminating the stones or feel the gentle touch of the clean sand under your feet.

Also, indulge in the rich cuisine of Amoi, especially the famous dish, Thai Phui Ji, which delights the taste buds with every bite.

Simping, a small island in the midst of Pasir Panjang, is not just a place. It is an undeniable tale of the beauty and tranquility of nature.

An enchanting serenade that captivates the heart, inviting us to be mesmerized by the wonders of the smallest island in the world, which still holds so many mysteries and memories.
