Anyone has been at Karimunbesar AKA Great Karimun Island

Subj. Karimunbesar Island is 2h on ferry from Singapore. Thinking going there for two days in upcoming 4 day weekend.

If anyone have been there fairly recently (last three years) would you mind to suggest:

- Where to stay
- What to see, not necessarily tourist spots
- Where to eat.

Thanks.

Hm. No reply. I'll go there next week to see if it is as dread as described in some travel blog entries.

Never been there but apparently there is Karimun Besar and there is Karimun Jawa. Karimun Besar in the Riau does not look appealing whereas the other in the Java sea looks great.

It's also commonly called Tg. balai.
Most go there do live firings.

Is is some kind of slang/term? I'm no joking - simply have not heard such term before.

Because to me 'live firings' sounds either a shooting range with live ammunition or firing someone from company while still alive. And I doubt that either of these explanations are applicable.
