South Bintan Heritage Tour

Day tour that covers the must-visit sites of South Bintan

Soak up the rich culture and heritage of Bintan island with this day tour that covers the must-visit sites of South Bintan. Start the day at the surreal settings of Vihara Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva (500 Lohan Temple), home to over 500 life-like stone statues of arhats and other intricately carved structures.
Next, board the pompong (water taxi) at the jetty of Tanjung Pinang and head towards Pulau Penyengat. Known as the abode of the kings, this off-shore island was the seat of power during the last phase of the Malay Kingdom. Visit historical sites such as the palace ruins and royal mausoleums, all adorned in hues of yellow and green. Continue on to Senggarang Village, said to be the first settlement for Chinese immigrants hundreds of years ago. Popular pilgrimage sites, the centuries-old Banyan Tree Temple as well as the complex of Lau Ya Keng are situated here.
Return back to the mainland of Tanjung Pinang for a sumptuous seafood lunch and witness first-hand the daily action of locals in this bustling trading port. Along the way, stop by the Tanjung Pinang wet markets for an eye-opening experience of Bintan’s produce and fresh catch. Then head to the traditional market to stock up on affordable dried seafood and various types of local snacks including kerupuk (prawn/fish flavored crackers). For a complete and satisfying retail experience, visit Tanjung Pinang City Center, the island’s biggest mall which features a huge supermarket and a two-storey departmental store.
