“Why people park their vehicles on the bridge?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Batam has ignorance people. They don't bother to think it is dangerous to park 100+ vehicles on the bridge.

The bridge itself has a beautiful view. Like to spend some times there.

“Worth a look”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

To be honest, there isn't really much to see in Batam, and if you're into attractions, Barelang Bridge probably is one of the better sights on the island. We drove all the way to Bridge 4, where we had a nice seafood lunch.

The hive of activities are mostly on Bridge 1 with the numerous roadside stalls and locals taking photos. The bridge's architecture was not too bad and the view was nice, but I probably would not drive out all the way here again. Do buy the corn from the roadside stalls and have a nice stroll down the bridge in the evening.

“Seen better bridges like Sentosa Bridge”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

The travelling time I recalled more than 45 minutes. Imagined to and fro it was a waste of bloody time? Upon arrival, what you get and what you see just a bridge nothing much else; unimpressive and definitely not worth the trip. I'd rather spend my time shopping at Batam City Square or Nagoya Hills malls.
