Bintan Island ( is just about 1 hour away from Singapore by a ferry ride. It seems like the island belongs to Singapore and doesn’t reflect the typical Indonesia culture. But it can be a good destination to escape from the hustle and bustle of the neighbor island country.

We took Mangrove Discovery Tour. It was quote interesting to us, because that kind of activity is almost impossible to have in Japan nor in Singapore (might be possible though, but I believe it’s better in Bintan). Totally unexperienced thing to us.

We took a morning tour starting at 7:00. It was awesome with little heat wave and much breeze. Their night tours are good as well. They told us you can see tons of lightning beetles shining in the grove. They are like natural Christmas trees on the tropical island. You should not miss this tour.
