“A big structure of beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

It was nice to see the effort of the people who build the bridge. On the bridge you can get to see a lot of locals either fishing or selling stuff. It was an introduction to their local culture.

“do you really need to see a bridge?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

I can't think of any point why someone would go there apart that there isn't much to do in Batam on a sunday afternoon.
Kind of sad to make the trip to see a bridge...

“Landmark of Batam”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

Make a trip there after seeing the reviews in trip advisor. Spend less than 10 mins, mainly just for photo taking. If one is running out of time, you can give this place a miss as it's quite a distance.
