You can see nice Buddha and kwam im statues. Do not forget to take ur selfie picture with Buddha statue. The place is quite far from Tanjung Pinang town. You need to take taxi or hotel tour to reach the place.

Was in Tanjung Pinang for a weekend getaway with friends in 2010. What attracted me is the rural living and sea food. Tanjung Pinang is a very rural area, if one is going to compare with developed city, Tanjung Pinang is not. There are many 1/2 developed buildings, or non developed areas or such, but the scenaries are definitely beautiful... More

A lot of big statues and the temple was really nice. Although location is quite far from the resort, it's a nice place to drop by. Try to arrange for a tour.

The only sight seeing place here in the whole of Bintan. You can spend around half an hour here. There's a ayam Pennet in the area around 2 miles away. Sells decent food. Feel free to check out as well.
