It costs SGD5 for a return trip to Pasah Oleh Oleh. It is a very small place and you can finish walking around it within 2 minutes. The driver dropped us outside a spa store (which he recommended of course). We got in, looked at the prices and decided to walk around before doing the spa. Shockingly, all other stores... More

I was here a few years back and returned in Feb 2015 for a visit (due to the high meal prices at hotels). There were two eateries which were open and a few other shops (spas and souvenirs). Many shops were closed including one which I liked from my past visit. This place is now very run down, decrepit and... More

I won't waste my time going there for a visit. There is literally nothing there worth visiting ... shops / foods / massage - forget it. You better off relaxing in your resort at the pool side or the beach.

It seems like this place was set up by the surrounding resorts for guests to experience the "real Bintan" thus not complain about the hotel prices when they return. It is a theme park village with souvenir, fake designer clothing an d restaurants. The mini marts are a lot cheaper than back at the resorts and the souvenirs probably are... More

There were only a few shoppes open, but it was nice for getting away from the resorts. It serves it's purpose in that it was convenient for picking up some kitschy souvenirs, although you don't need much time here. It is very small.

It's a market for tourists only, and if that's what you expect, then you won't be disappointed. There are a few souvenir stores, but the highlight is definitely cheaper food/drinks than the hotels, and cheap, quality massages. Nobody really touts too much, which is good, but it will only take you half an hour to see everything, and it costs... More

So, not a place you would specifically come to for a tourist attraction or any resemblance of a real village.... What it is though is a way to get your beer and massages for decent prices, rather than the extortion from the resorts... For example for a $5sgd shuttle from the hotel.. (Really at the price they charge for the... More
