Bintan Island, located in Riau Province, is now one of the favorite natural tourist destinations of travelers around the world. Beautiful beaches and a calm and quiet atmosphere make this island suitable to be included in a tour package for your upcoming holiday.
Until now, the tour package to Bintan is still dominated by foreign tourists. Most of them come from Singapore. In fact, the Singapore dollar was once being the currency used in several resorts and hotels in Bintan for a while. However, since Indonesia’s government issued a law on the use of Rupiah in the country, tourists now have to use Rupiah when traveling to Bintan.
You can get to Bintan via an international airport located in Tanjung Pinang. The airport, formerly called the Kijang Airport, has now been renamed as Raja Haji Fisabilillah Airport. You can choose a flight from Jakarta's Soekarno-Hatta Airport or Sultan Syarif Kasim II Airport, Pekanbaru.
As an alternative, you can also go to Bintan via Batam. Then you can go by taxi to the Telaga Punggur pier. If using a ferry, go to one of the two docks available there: Tanjung Uban and Tanjung Pinang.
Treasure Bay is the largest swimming pool in Southeast Asia. It was built on an area of 6.3 hectares. In addition to swimming, you can relax while enjoying the beauty of the pond and the beautiful gardens around it. Besides those, you can also ride a kayak boat to explore the entire pool area. To get around the pool, you can drive by segway which is provided by the place’s administrator.

If you are interested in historical tourism, you have to visit Penyengat Island while you are on vacation in Bintan. On the island, there is a beautiful historic mosque that has been established since the 18th century, called Masjid Raya Sultan Riau. To reach this area, you only need to cross through Tanjung Pinang Port by motorboat for approximately 15 minutes.

But if you prefer to walk, there is also a convenient open lane. While walking through the woods, you can take some photos with the background of the mangrove roots towering.
This island is not far from Trikora Beach. Not surprisingly, they almost have the same characteristics. Here you will also find large rocks scattered around the coast. However, one thing that makes Penyusuk Island different is the presence of coral reefs that look so charming.
