Things to do in Bintan Island
A place where you can satisfy your crave for a good food with unique concept of choosing each sticks with your choice of grill sauce or soup
One of the worst Mie Pangsit (aka Wanton Noodles) I have even eaten in my life! I am a big fan of Wanton Noodles and I can identify a really poor dish when I taste it. I am surprised some reviewers had recommended this place. The lye water (aka Jian Shui) or alkaline in the noodles was very strong making it almost inedible. There was hardly any sauce in the noodles. The only saving grace was that the Wantons are nice. I wouldnât bother to sweat in the heat of this coffee shop just to eat this. Price was reasonable but not worth it.
Visit to Restoran Kolam Mancing Pantai Trikora at 39 km Teluk Bakau This kelong/resort/restaurant is located on East coast of Bintan called Trikora facing South China Sea. Getting there from Singapore includes a 50 minutes ride by high-speed BRF ferry from Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal to Bandar Bentan Telani (Lagoi) Terminal in North-west Bintan, follow by another hour of land transport to the kelong. We got on the 9:10 am ferry from Singapore and arrived at the Kelong 1010 hrs Indonesia time. Indonesia is behind Singapore by 1 hour. There are 5 ferries to Lagoi on weekday and 7 ferries on weekend. Normally I will go for 2 days and 1 night stay at the kelong during weekday. This is a cheap 2 days holidays + seafood costing about S$200 per pax x 4 pax = S$800 for ferry tickets, transport, fishing, rooms and meals.We were advised to be early by 1- 1.5 hour for check in of luggage and immigration because this ferry leaves punctually and also the road leading to the terminal is always jammed with big trucks carrying earth for reclaimation at end of road. After collecting our boarding pass from BRF counters, walk right to baggage counters for checkin of large luggage and fishing equipment. You must produce your boarding passes. If fishing rods or big baggage exceed 6 feet, have to pay S$10 surcharge each. Count number of check in luggages with staff and will get a receipt. After this, we walk to extreme left side of building to cafe/immigration counters. Took breakfast before entering immigration. Otherwise proceed into immigration by showing your passport and boarding passes. Then go into security area where they will check/scan hand carry bag. There are plenty of seats in the departure hall, a duty free shop and a small cafe at the end. Restrooms are at the end on right side after Duty free shop. Can buy duty free liquor and cigarette to Bintan but remember to finish all before coming back to Singapore.When it is time for boarding, announcement will be made for boarding usually at Gate 2. Scan boarding pass and gate will open for you to enter. Walk to correct platform with ferry for boarding and a staff will collect boarding pass before entering. If you had booked Emerald class, you can go to upper floor or else sit any where you like at lower front or rear of deck of ferry. Once the ferry start to move, it is a smooth ride. The small cafe at lower rear will open to sell coffee/tea and snacks or ice creams. A movie will be screened or you can take a short nap of 50 minutes. Fill up white immigration cards and custom declaration while on board.On arriving at Bintan's Bandar Bentan Telani Ferry Terminal (Lagoi), walked to immigration counters. Stamp our passport and walk to moving belt to collect our luggage and fishing rods. There are trolleys nearby for use. After collecting out luggage and fishing rods, walk to right side for custom/scanning check and hand over custom declaration form. Walk out to arrival hall where there are some shops, BRF ferry shop and resorts counters. Go to BRF shop which is the first shop on your left to collect return ferry tickets with booking vouchers that you had printed. Walk to exit to find driver of Pantai Trikora who will be holding a placard of your name. This is same procedure for those who had booked rooms at Bintan Lagoon resort, Nirwana Garden resort, Banyan Tree, Club Med, etc... located at northern part of Bintan.Please note that advance booking must be made with Kolam Mancing Pantai Trikora by calling the boss to confirm dates of stay and what ferry you will be arriving on. So he can arrange a driver to receive you - chargable. For peak season, public holidays and weekend, sometime you must book at least 1 â 3 months in advance for rooms in kelong. It is also advisable to book in advance for ferry tickets to Bintan's Lagoi terminal because many Singaporean go to Bintan's resorts for holidays. Many schools also organised outings to Bintan for their students.Once you are in the car, it will take 60 minutes to reach the kelong. It is time for another nap to prepare yourself for continuous fishing or karaoke. Car will be traveling through forest area near Bintan resorts before going out of security gate. It will pass a small town called Oleh Oleh before heading southward for 10 minutes and then Eastward through forest, farm lands and palm plantations. After 50 minutes of winding road which the local called highway â 1 lane up and 1 lane down, you will come to a T-junction with a fishing village and can see the Eastern coast of Bintan Island. This is the Trikora beach where locals will come on weekend for swimming or relaxing along the beach. Car will turn right, head further south for another 10 minutes passing 2 small resorts and you will come to a small village with houses on both side of road. You will see a jetty stretching out to sea with small boats and a long bridge with shelter going outward to the sea with houses at the end parallel to this jetty. Restoran Kolam Mancing Pantai Trikora is here. You must enter through a house with above sign board, walk along the sheltered bridge to the houses at the end. You will pass by a kitchen on the left and a restaurant with 10 tables/chairs on the right. Keep walking and you will reach reception counter with television and a breakfast area here. This is the place to collect your room keys, buy drinks/beer, coffee/tea, cup noodles and small fishes/prawns/squids for fishing. After collecting your room keys, walk to left side passing the breakfast area, karaoke room to the rooms. There are 2 type of rooms â small or big rooms. Small room is S$35 per room/nite with either a queen size bed or 2 single bed without television. You can ask for a extra mattress (chargable) if there is extra person. Big room is S$50 per room/nite with 2 queen size beds and a television but reception is not good. All rooms are air-conditioned. Toilet paper is supplied. You must bring your own towels, soap and shampoo or you can buy from the shop/cafe along the road just opposite entrance to this kelong. Power points here are same as Singapore and available in all rooms for charging of phones or boiling water.If you are a family with 1 â 2 children, it is better to get a big room. Both type of rooms have attached seating toilet, shower, plastic pail and wash basin. There is no electric hot water shower so it is better to bath in the afternoon because water will not be very cold. You can also asked kelong's staff for kettle of hot water (chargable) to add to cold water for bathing if you need or bring your own electric kettle. This kelong has houses/rooms on both sides of a large netted rectangle pond in the sea and is completely fenced up to prevent falling into the sea. It is suitable for children. Previously the supports/pillar, floor and walls of this kelong were wood and have to be change regularly due to rot, wear and strong waves. 2 years ago, the boss decided to change all supports/pillar, floorings and walls to concrete materials. Now it look like a resort. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are your own order â ala carte. You pay what you order from a menu of Chinese food similar to restaurants of Singapore but at lower price. All food are prepared in the kelong kitchen by boss wife and family. They had lots of fresh seafood such as crabs, prawns, gong gong, squid from their own catch. Chicken, vegetables, rice, fresh coconut and papayas are purchased from nearby villages and Tanjong Pinang. If you have a group of 10 or 20 person, you can arrange for package rate from kelong boss which will include transfers from ferry/kelong/ferry terminal, rooms and meals. BBQ can also be arranged if you inform kelong boss in advance so he can order food for you.Distance between shorter sides of fishing pond is very far, more than 100 feet. Using a fishing rod, line and heavy sinker, I cannot reach middle of the pond. The longer sides are even further in distance. There are a lot of corals and stones in the center and lines are snarled easily but there are also many big fishes hiding there. Smaller fishes are caught around the net, near bridges and quiet locations. If there are too much noises, fishes will not come near. There are many types of fishes - groupers, parrot fishes, sea basses, GT, barramundi etc... These are caught off shore by fishermen and sold to the kelong boss who will then release into the pond. Those who are interested in fishing can bring your own rods - the sea around the Kelong is full of all kinds of fishes. It is free of charge to fish outside the netted pond but if you want to fish inside the netted pond, you have to pay S$40 per rod/day â 24 hours which is very cheap as compared to Singapore ponds. You can see the fishes swimming around in the pond. Guaranteed that there are fishes in the pond but it depend on your skill to hook them. Your catch will be cleaned of inner parts and packed into your ice boxes for you but remember to give a tip to the workers.Other than eating, fishing and sleeping, we were chatting and bonding a good relationshop. There was also plenty of time to spend on reading or just recharging. There are plenty of chairs and benches all around the kelong for these activities. You can also play mahjong or cards or sing in the karaoke room. You can also take a swim at the end of kelong. At highest tide, it is only 10 feet deep and low tide can be only 0.5 feet. In the early morning, you can see the sunrise from the ocean near to the island if weather is good.You can also walk to the main road to visit the village and jetty just next to this kelong. Otah and ice chengloh drinks can be purchased at provision/cafe shop just opposite this kelong. Shampoo and liquid soap can also be purchased here. In the morning, you can eat noodle here. If the fishing boats arrive, you can buy fishes and squids directly from these fishermen at cheaper price. You can arrange for a boat to bring you for swimming at island opposite this kelong or for a day transport to Tanjong Pinang town for sightseeing, temple visit, bak kut the, massage, spa and shopping â chargable. Massage can also be arranged at the kelong at S$15 per hour by informing counter staff. If you are interested to buy ikan bilis and dried shrimps, this kelong is selling from their own catch. They have their own floating kelong far out in the sea to catch ikan bilis and squids. When it is time to leave, check out at counter by returning all keys and settle bill. Driver will sent you to ferry terminal at least 2 hours before departure. Last ferry leaves at 2015 hrs but we left kelong at 1730 hrs so that we could go for dinner first at food centre near ferry terminal. Check in start from 1930 hrs and we boarded ferry at 2000 hrs. Ferry left Lagoi at 2015 (Indonesia time) and we arrived Singapore's TMFT at 2015 hrs. (Singapore Time)
Chop Chop is Bintanâs Chinatown, a quintessential part of the Asian experience. Wherever you go in Asia, food stalls are plentiful and is one of the purest ways to get in touch with the local culture. We have brought that into Bintan Lagoon Resortâs Fiest

Warm greeting from Bintan Island please grab our fresh seafood Restaurant in part of your taste
Heard from a local driver that this was a kelong restaurant that locals went to eat and would be much cheaper than Kelong Seafood in Nirwana Gardens. The driver clearly got a cut as he kept trying to get us to order lobster and expensive dishes. The menu was nicely bound with English descriptors to every dish. And definitely priced at tourist rates, not local rates. Came up to a more expensive meal than the one in Nirwana Gardens!! For an average meal - not bad, but Iâd save the long trip out and stay within Nirwana Gardens next time.

This Chinese seafood restaurant is located along the main stretch of road where lots of food outlets are located. It has both indoor and outdoor seating areas. Great variety of food options such as crabs, lobsters, prawns, shell fish and more. Quality of food is good but a little pricey compared to other seafood restaurants.
