yes, it is a resort after all... the things all expensive...
i agree it is resort, but they are INDON resort leh, not 1st world economy resort. What they have to charge such price?

U say match sg price already very expensive, they even double it! One hour massage at S$100!

Last time when I was 17, first time travel out of SG so go nearby area test water first. Chose Bintan. Never ever will i step foot in back.

Stayed at Bintan Agro Beach Resort.
1) Entire of Bintan, there's only this big supermarket for shopping. Expect something that looks like a cramped up sheng shiong.
2) Night market for supper. Something like penang with 5 stalls?? All selling cha kway teow and some goreng stuff. Was warned not to venture out of that compound (as big as a football field) cos that's where the gangs hang out, not very safe for foreigners.
3) Signed up for some water activities - some idiot travel agent told me there water is VERY clear, bullshiat!. Van drove a bunch of us there, sea water receded, end up walking on sea bed instead. .. Driver said dry season for those few months. How convenient to still take the tour money!
4) Food, make sure your package bao inside. No other food area... seafood over there is pretty low quality.

Chatted up with the driver, he himself say to charging sky high prices to tourists is the only thing they can do. There is no jobs, no company would want to go there. The young ppl ambition is to go Batam, that's where the money is

so it is true? I just heard it is run by Sinkie too. No wonder a lot of marketing, get bloggers to write and market them. Active on trip advisor.

Silly right, once people experience this shat, they won't have returning customers for sure.

I see ang mo so urgent to board the ferry and face very sad too

Wah lao, why need torture yourself by eating instant noodles? Can go trikora beach or tanjung pinang, eat until you so drop.
