    went to bintan some years back for team building trip. quite nice except things not very cheap as using sin dollar. stayed in bintan lagoon resort with personal swimming pool & have a buggy too. in fact nothing much more than for relaxation. quite a number of seasport but kind of ex if i dun remember wrongly was like S$60 fo 30min jet ski. the sea there very clear gd for me as i like sea sports but i can't swim might be wondering what is there under the water. i like best is the sky there in the night very nice for star glazing. even saw a few shooting stars. in singapore hardly see de. a romantic place to be in. went to a kelong for seafood & we had a night fishing trip. and not forgetting to drink till drop drunk as beer there quite cheap if i dun remember wrongly. :001_302:

    only reason I've ever gone to Bintan was for the Banyan Tree Resort. Expensive but oh so relaxing! loved just being able to do absolutely nothing while enjoying the scenery and my hubby's attention. :)

    the last time I went to Bintan, stayed at Nirwana Gardens. not much facilities. The food there oso so so, nothing much to do, except swim, snorkeling, sun-tanning, and eat. and everythg is paid in SGD, expensive lo.
    stayed there for 3days 2 night , spent ard 1k in total plus accomodation.

    Good about there is can sun tanning in 'anyway' like nobody's business..hehe
    I remembered there's this thai restaurant, Baan Aarya. Worth to go. Cos their thai food is super nice esp the green curry. :p
