just a place where people sit around waiting for the evening. There by the sea. Not Spectacular. Just a lot of people selling. Whether, it is worth mentioning sights or not. If the so-called tourist attractions, local governments should undertake good governance. While this is left confused and messy. Indeed, in Tanjung Pinang is actually feasible to be developed as...

this spot is never known by tourists. It is a place where the locals go especially the youngs. its quite breezy down here since its overkooks the buildings in Dompak Island especially the Mosque and the Provincial Government Office. U can have snacks and drinks here. Good getaway from it all in the downtown

Smooth and good road. Jungle on along the road, very refreshing for the eye and tired-mind. You hardly meet other cars nor houses. Very nice trip to the resort.

there was nothing really there. the market stalls were really disappointing, nowhere near the standard of the street markets that we've been to in Chiang Mai, Bangkok, KL, Melaka. The streets are full of crazy drivers and no real pavements to safely walk. don't bother going here, pick one of the above places instead which have far more variety. I... More

We where lucky enough to score a driver while down at Paser Oleh Oleh where we got a great massage of 2 hours and pedicure for about $80. Anyway we organised the driver to pick us up... More

Tanjung Pinang is great for backpackers and leisure travellers. It's a town stuck in an era long gone from Singapore (save some areas) and it feels humbling being in a place like that. I suppose the key to going about this town and finding it's hidden treasures is an open mind, and a place to dump your luggage so you're... More
