    Bintan is a huge place compared to SG. It'll take you a few hours to drive from one end of the island to the other end! So where will you be staying? In one of the SG's hotel resorts or in Tg. Pinang which is like about 4 hours drive away. Many things to see and do in TP like fishing, diving , etc. Take a tour - a full day's tour of Bintan. Or play golf, or GF, or ....

    Hi bro, long time no see.

    Seriously, the food at the kelong seafood restaurant is nothing near fantastic and it is not

    exactly located in a kelong. It's looked to me like some sort of wooden architecture

    structure that stretches to the sea (river??? ) Furthermore, the view is just so so

    but it's quite peaceful eating there. Remember to bring insect repellent if you really keen to

    pay a visit there. The mosquito is really

    Do try the ATVs, they are fun to ride Opt for the 1/2 hour version, because whether its 1hr or 1/2 hr, you still get 1hr :P :P.

    Beside that in Bintan there are so much to do e.g.

    1. Climb the coconut tree competition.
    2. Sleep or read a novel underneath a shady coconut tree.
    3. Count coconuts game.
    4. Play waterpolo with a coconut.
    5. Join a coconut drink bar.

    Go down to their town, Pasar Ole Ole... Can take the bus from the hotel lobby, $4 or $6 per pax. For 2 pax only its fine, the other time I went with friends, 6 of us we took taxi instead, cheaper. But we have an indo-chinese with us so we got better deals!

    There's a spa just opposite Pasar Ole Ole, its cheaper than the one at the hotel for sure!

    Can buy dvds and watch in the room too!

    bintan lagoon resort is very expensive and the feeling is like in Singapore.

    Tg. Pinang is cheaper and there can buy a lot of local products
