Day trip to Bintan

Hi there, not sure if this question has been answered but I'm a 29 yrs old female travelling solo wants to do a day trip to Bintan from Singapore (originally from Canada) and wondering what's there to do and where to go on the island? How much money should I bring? is it safe? Any suggestions will be appreciated!

Hi Gilliam0710,

Bintan Island itself is more ideal for a resort vacation. Most people that visits Bintan island will be accommodating at one of the resorts on the island as there will be several recreational activities within the various resorts itself. Hence, there are not much to do on the island for a day trip and things are exorbitantly priced at Bintan and are comparable to Singapore.

If you are looking for a day trip to one of the Riau Island in Indonesia, perhaps you could consider Batam Island instead. It is just a 45 minutes ferry ride from Harbourfront Ferry Terminal in Singapore and you can expect significantly cheaper food and spa there.
