I'm planning to bring my wife and kid to Bintan when summer vacation starts.

I've read that the resorts could get pricey (especially for food), I was wondering if there are any CSers who have been there recently and maybe provide some tips.

We're planning to spend between 3 to 5 days there and do the usual family fun stuff, but mostly just to relax and unwind.

Can anyone give some details like where to board, cost of transpo, things to look out for, good value resorts, etc.?

Lastly, if Bintan isn't for you, can you suggest any other not-so-far beach resorts we can go to as well?

Thanks in advance!
