Bintan Island that creates part of the Riau Archipelago from the South China Sea is the ideal getaway for families and friends within Singapore with its wide variety of items to do.
The ferry journey additionally adds to the absolute most significant part a vacation — the travel. And all the more since it’s really convenient. There are a Number of rides Every Day by Tanah Merah, Singapore into the three vents at Bintan: Bintan Badar Bentan Terani, Tanjung Pinang — both the funds, along with Bintan Lagoon Resort. The previous one is ideal if you book in this specific hotel since the journey takes you straight there. But should you would like to put in a road trip to your travel, get off in either of the prior two vents and have a car for your hotel. I am happy I accepted the Bintan streets one-way since they were magnificent.
Eat fresh and thoroughly affordable seafood/local food
Sebung Village, the sleepy little village near Sebung River, really serves the very best fish in Bintan. I binged on everything from lobsters, prawns, mussels, freshly caught fish, crabs, and more. Fresh, flavorful, and extremely affordable, the fish becomes served in pubs built on stilts, offering you a gorgeous view of the mangrove river at the same time. Additionally, the funds, Tanjung Pinang, includes a lively nighttime food bazaar called Akau, where you’ll see a vast array of tasty regional snacks to satisfy the taste buds. One must-eat item in your list is the’otak otak’, which is fish meat cooked Indonesian style and comes wrapped in coconut leaves. The resorts also offer a buffet, however, clearly, for a higher price. If you happen to stay at the Bintan Lagoon Resort, do not forget to try their Wasabi Prawns.
Test some outside tasks like ATV
Being an island destination, Bintan doesn’t neglect where water sports are involved, and you’ll discover lots of items to do. Because most hotels face the shore, it is easy to avail these tasks in the water sports facilities. On the flip side, April into October sees rocky waters which make it perfect for jet ski, water skiing, and also, needless to say, diving and snorkelling. On property, you also may try your hands in ATV rides, mountain biking, biking and adventure treks. Your hotel can aid you with transfers and bookings. I had the best moment at Bintan Lagoon Resort using both ATV along with Segway rides. You might even hire bicycles and cycle inside the massive hotel, but because I did not have time, I have left this to my next trip.
Sunbathe and Dive in clear blue Ocean in Trikora Beach
The local beach destination lies along the eastern beaches of the island and is the perfect place for sunbathing or dipping in the sea. I found the on-rent cabanas scatter the shore to be a pretty good way to chill out for just Rp2000 (SGD 0.20) for the entire day. The ocean boasts of three distinct hues of blue to a clear bright day, and you get lovely regional food in the beach shacks. My beach sauntering led me into some fishing village nearby, marked by the fishermen’s stilt homes constructed to catch/breed fish, locally known as ‘kelongs’. While it’s fascinating to see the fishermen concentrate on their actions, there is another section that is busy making boats in the scratch. Even though camera-shy, these individuals are quite friendly and have a ready smile for tourists wandering close to them. In addition, close to the shore lies the Santa Maria Cave, that is home to a Mother Mary statue beneath a half-world. It was built by a Dutch priest from the 18th century that still sees people gathering there every Sunday to pay their tribute.
