“Batam Bules take a road trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

While Barelang is off the beaten path it is well worth the journey. Crossing over a series of bridges to arrive in "Barelang" will give you an up close view of the indigenous people of Indonesia. with street side fruit stands and traditional fishing boats that dot the water ways. The beaches are virtually untouched and the monkeys will enjoy snatching your electronic devices if you wander too far away.

“A bridge is a bridge is a bridge”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

Nothing to go out of your way to see unless you have some free time and you don't know what to do. Batam Island is connected by a series of four bridges to the mainland.

“Nothing Special, a lot of good spot for photo taking”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

Nothing really special about this bridge, except you could find a lot of great photo spot if you are a photographer.

Lot of food stall around there, good place to hangout with friends.

Tips : Make sure you bring enough fuel on your vehicle, because they sell fuel with very very expensive prices.. (could be double from normal price)
