Top 5 Reasons to Rediscover Bintan – Get a respite from the city life

The next time you are craving some time away from the hustle and bustle of city life, the one thing you need to keep in mind is that Bintan is the place you need to take yourself to. This beautiful island is the definition of picturesque and brings to those who visit true enjoyment.


Come for nature

Nature remains undefeated in its ability to bring people together and show them that sometimes in life, a slower pace may be the better way. Instead of following the rigorous tasks that are expected of us each day, it may be better to simply reduce the number of things you do, down to just the most meaningful things to be completed.

Bintan, for example, is one such place. With a landmass that is a little more than twice the size of Singapore, this island is filled with the lushest landscapes and beaches that are a dream come true for those lovers of all thing's nature has to offer.

Whether you simply want to lounge on the beach or go for a hike up the hills of the mountain, there is something for everyone. If you are wondering what are the things to do in Bintan in terms of an educational experience about the nature that surrounds you, the Mangrove Discovery Tour may be a great place to start.


Enjoy the cultural diversity

As a trading post of import for the Malaysian, Chinese, Arabian as well as other trading nations, the era of the spice route made this island one that gained exposure to many global cultures. Today the island and its people express this influence through the language, religions and architecture that inhabits this beautiful island.


Come for nature, stay for the food

There is nothing quite like visiting a culturally diverse location and getting to partake in some of the delectable dishes that feed this community.

When it comes to the food in Bintan you can expect to come across everything from carrot cakes to kuey teow. It goes with saying that locations such as The Residence Bintan offers some of the best cuisines around but there are also plenty of places that can offer you a delicious meal to fit your wallet.


Pick any activity

Water sports play a dominant role in the activities that there are to do on this island and you can very easily jump onto a jet ski, go for a swim and then go snorkelling and scuba diving all in just one day.

You can also rent an ATV and get your adrenaline pumping if you prefer to enjoy yourself on the land.


Plenty of accommodation

The best thing about Bintan, above all that is mentioned already, is the standard of accommodations that are available on the island. Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway or some quality time with your family, you are likely to be spoilt for choice as the island offers something for everyone!
