“I don't know what to say”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

just a place where people sit around waiting for the evening.
There by the sea. Not Spectacular.
Just a lot of people selling.
Whether, it is worth mentioning sights or not.
If the so-called tourist attractions, local governments should undertake good governance.
While this is left confused and messy.
Indeed, in Tanjung Pinang is actually feasible to be developed as a tourist spot, dear ... local authority is less sensitive.

“little cafe facing Dompak”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

this spot is never known by tourists. It is a place where the locals go especially the youngs.
its quite breezy down here since its overkooks the buildings in Dompak Island especially the Mosque and the Provincial Government Office.
U can have snacks and drinks here.
Good getaway from it all in the downtown

“Good road”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

Smooth and good road. Jungle on along the road, very refreshing for the eye and tired-mind. You hardly meet other cars nor houses. Very nice trip to the resort.

“nothing to write home about”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

there was nothing really there. the market stalls were really disappointing, nowhere near the standard of the street markets that we've been to in Chiang Mai, Bangkok, KL, Melaka. The streets are full of crazy drivers and no real pavements to safely walk. don't bother going here, pick one of the above places instead which have far more variety.
I have to say we never felt unsafe and the locals seemed quite friendly.
