Bintan

Another trip done.
This time to Bintan
It’s a short trip 3D2N

Bintan is definetely more expensive than Batam but the scenary is Istagram worthy.
Word of advice-Remember to change your currency at your country before take off.

How to reach Bintan from Singapore?
Head to Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal. Pre-booked your ferry ticket online and come early to collect your ticket before boarding.

If you have a weak stomach, try not to eat just before boarding. Our ferry keep on bumping up and down , that people on our left,right,front and back seat keep on vomiting. Seriously 😑Me?? I feel so nausea that I want to vomit but I control myself.

After custom checked at Bintan-BBT,Find a guy holding your hotel name. He will direct  you to your shuttle bus going to your hotel. If you did not see, just wait. He will come. As usual, there will be local people offer taxi service to the hotel. And the price DAMN….

Stayed at Grand Lagoi
Environment: Satisfied
Staff: Satisfied
Cleanliness: Satisfied

The hotel is located next to a small mall called Plaza Lagoi and short distant walk to the beach. However, there are some construction going on for upcoming new buildings.

Cost around Tanjung Pinang is definitely cheaper than Bintan
