“Nothing special here”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

at the first day I come to batam, my family ask me go there.. They just said, this is a very long bridge there. And guess what, this bridge is so so long .. It's connecting 7 islands (3 average islands: "BAtam, REmpang, gaLANG" and 4 small islands). Many people come here just for take a picture and most of them just reached to 2nd bridge, because nothing to see(just tree and more tree) in there just take more time and really long journey to reached the last bridge

“Not so special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

This water is beautiful but the colour of the bridge is so ugly.
But I really like the grilled corn along the road. It is very delicious

“The biggest bridge in Batam”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Just like other normal bridge, with scenery view of next island and bay. Usually people stop by and hang around the bridge side, but i heard nowdays is not allowed anymore. The bridge was constructed to connect Batam Island with Rempang Island and Galang Island. In total there are 7 bridges to connect these 3 big islands.
There are plenty good local seafood nearby the island after Barelang bridges. They called it "Kelong".

“Interesting.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

Visiting Batam will not complete without visiting this landmark...consisting of 6 big bridges, if I'm not mistaken..

Connecting Batam, Rembang and Galang islands, these bridges spread across beautiful blue sea and small islands...

Interesting indeed, though it was a bit tricky to park and take pictures here..The favorite one is the second bridge, the cable-stayed one...

Many street vendors along the bridge and many people spend their afternoon by the bridge..

Worth a visit ..
