“Go for the views”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

We heard about this bridge from the hotel concierge who said it was an iconic landmark in Batam, so we decided to have a look. It took us close to an hour from the BCC hotel. The bridge structure is unique, but I think the views are the ones that are worth a trip for. We could see the sea into the distance and also the islands. It's a good place for some photography as well.

“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".
