About Bintan Island:

Bintan Island is part of the Riau archipelago in Indonesia, situated to the southeast of Singapore.

Boasting luxury resorts, exquisite beaches and beautiful gardens, Bintan is one of Indonesia’s more upmarket holiday islands and is widely regarded as the country’s most popular tourist destination, after Bali.

Most of the hotels can be found in the Lagoi region to the north, which is also where two of the island’s ports are located. Tanjung Pinang sits on the southwest coast and, like all ports on Bintan, provides numerous daily crossings to Singapore.

With some ferry journeys lasting just under an hour, it’s never been easier to jump across the Strait of Singapore to one of South East Asia’s most popular countries.

About Singapore:

Located in Southeast Asia, Singapore, is a sovereign city state and island country and lies off the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula.

With a land area of about 710 square kilometres, Singapore is one of the smallest countries in the world and the smallest in the region. Although small in size, Singapore manages to command an enormous presence in the world today with its free trade economy and highly efficient workforce.

Singapore is a bustling cosmopolitan city of high-rise buildings, landscaped gardens and heritage-rich precincts. Home to a harmonious blend of culture, cuisine, arts and architecture, Singapore is rich in contrast and colour. In fact, you would find that Singapore embodies aspects of both East and West in many interesting ways.

Singapore’s population stands at around five million and English as the main language of instruction, and a mother tongue for each major ethnicity. Being a multi-racial society, Singapore is as diverse as it is harmonious. With so much to see and do, this is perhaps best experienced through your encounters with the locals.
