In the beginning, I rejected to join this trip, as I though there will be nothing special over there. I did some research but still nothing is satisfied me until finally my sister able to pursue me to do this trip. So, here’s my little adventure to the Lagoi Bay, Bintan Island.
Bintan Islands is one of the biggest island in the Riau archipelago of Indonesia. It is part of the Riau Islands province, which exactly located not far from Singapore. Maybe that one of the reason why there is so many resort in Bintan Islands owned by Singaporean. Bintan Islands itself for me is almost same like other city in Indonesia but the differences is that you will find out there are strong influence of culture, religion and languages from Melayu and Chinese ethnic.

Yeah…finally I am back to blog! I have been busy these past weeks but I am glad now can come back to write. During these few days, I have traveled a lot and most of the time I am using public transport (Transjakarta/Busway). At that time, I am thinking to make this post as I remember when I was traveling to other countries, I try to search they local public transport. I prefer public transport compare to taxi in the foreign countries apart it is more cheaper I also can see and learn the local culture. I think the most easily to see that is when you take their local public transports.
