We have rented a taxi to tour us around Batam. This place is known as one of the iconic of Batam. Dont be surprise, it is a bridge with good view, and that's all.

The view along the bridge is beautiful, great spot for phototaking. There are street vendors along the bridge selling grilled corns, drinks, and other local snacks.

This bridge is just nice to see from a far but another way around when you step on to this bridge and take a photo. However, it's definitely worth getting out of the city and seeing the natural side of Batam. Very pretty views-hard to believe that it is so close to Singapore.

Pass the barelang bridge to had lunch at Nelayan Kelong seafood restaurant. Refreshing view and it takes more than one hour to complete the 6 bridges. Nelayan restaurant serve fresh seafood, garoupa, scallop, crabs, prawns . Worth the effort to eat there. On the way back We stop at Dragon fruit farm , but fruits not in season.

It was nice to see the effort of the people who build the bridge. On the bridge you can get to see a lot of locals either fishing or selling stuff. It was an introduction to their local culture.

I can't think of any point why someone would go there apart that there isn't much to do in Batam on a sunday afternoon. Kind of sad to make the trip to see a bridge...
