I would always ask to book again with Sarah as she was awesome, the problem is we don't go on many family holidays and neither does our close friend group!! This was our first trip away in nearly 6 years!!"

Bintan Island is the largest of the 3200 islands in the Riau archipelago of Indonesia. The capital of Riau Islands province, Tanjung Pinang, lies on the SW coast, where most of the 345,000 inhabitants live. Singapore lies 84 km to the NW, separated by Singapore Strait. Historically, from the 3rd C it was on the trading route between India and China; in the 12 C was known as “Pirate Island”; then colonised by the Chinese, British, and Dutch in turn . The NW of the island is a resort area, with its fine beaches and hotels. Indonesia is promoting Bintan as the next best tourist destination after Bali.

Tanjung Pinang city with its maze of streets and alleys has a large Chinese population, along with Malays and Indonesians. Being close to the Equator, the climate is hot tropical, with two seasons – hot and wet, and hot and dry. Its economy centres on tourism, most visitors coming from Singapore, Korea and Japan. Resort-related development has no shortage of funding. Around the capital there is no shortage of monuments, temples, Islamic relics, Grand Mosque on the island of Penyengat (linked by bridge to the capital). Interestingly, it is said of Tanjung Pinang: “The city is the backyard for the Singaporeans to get away from their sanitized city to indulge in a spot of anarchy”.

The Riau Islands were central to the great Malay kingdoms or Sultanates of the 'Malay World'. The Strait of Malacca to the north is the main shipping channel between the Indian Ocean and the Pacific Ocean, making it the busiest strait in the world. It is the home of shipwrecks, subject to bushfire haze, and until recently piracy.
