Trikora Beach


This time we talk about the northeast and eastern coast beach in Trikora location. This beach offers a stretch of white sand where you can unwind and take in the view. The water of this sea is also so damn crystal-clear. This beach is great to do snorkeling and swimming. Trikora Beach has section till four beaches of Trikora. People mm, local people said Trikora One till four. Do not ask me why people give it the name of the beach like these. I still never find the answer. When I know the history I will tell you in another article.


 Penyengat Island

Penyengat is a small island in southwest of Bintan. Its need just 15-minute used motorboat from Tanjung Pinang. The local people said the motorboat is pompong. It is traditional boat but no worry it safe.  This island is very rich history of the Riau-Johor sultanate. So you can find some tombs of sultans and also the history of Grand Mosque Sultan of Riau.  


Waterfall Bintan Mountain


Honestly, I just one time visit this place and this waterfall Bintan island is not the biggest waterfall like in Batu or Bali. At least, if you love to tracking this location is perfect to do it. When you already in top of hill you can see the beautiful view of Bintan island. Then fresh yourself in the waterfall, although the water is not high and a lot but it still make you fresh after tiring tracking in the tropical forest.


Senggarang Chinese Village


This Chinatown or you can said village in Tanjung Pinang; the location in Senggarang, so some people said Senggarang. So they will know what exactly your destination. This place has full of history. The style of homes still used wooden stilt houses built over the water and with private Chinese shrines at its entrances. You can also find the oldest Chinese temple in the Riau Islands here, known as Klenteng Ang Nio that dates back to 1770AD. 


This is the best part to spot photo with the Cina style and honestly I love sit here for a few hours before sunset. At least I feel peace to dreaming in my favorite spot near beach hahaha.


Avalokitesvara Graha (Guan Yin) Temple

This is the biggest of Chinese Buddhist temples in Southeast Asia. It called Vihara Avalokitesvara Graha houses a magnificent 16.8m tall statue of Chinese goddess Guan Yin. This area still build and I bet in a few years it will be more fantastic. This place also has statue plated in 22-karat gold. Inside the temple you will also find intricate wall motifs and other tall sculptures of Chinese gods and goddesses.

This place area is most my favorite place to meditation in every evening time before sunset. This place so quiet and you also can hear the wild sound of birds. That is why I love stay here for 30 minutes after exercises. Peace mind will good for health. The most I also never bore taking photo in the temple.


Banyan Tree Temple


The only one of highlights in Senggarang of the temple, because this temple under  a massive banyan tree. That is the name of this temple of Bayan Tree Temple. This roots of tree has grown over and become with the sacred temple for more than a century.  Most local people this temple to someone get luck when pray in here.


 Vihara Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva

This temple is containing 500 bodhisattva statues. This Buddhist temple located on the hills west of Tanjung Pinang and it was famous around 2010. Most good and bad review because it was really gate is like in Cina. Whatever what people said about this place. Honestly, I do not care; it was awesome to explore and look many expression face of lohan (statues) of Budha, This temple is open for those coming to pray and art enthusiasts interested in the artistic feats. Surrounding the complex are lush plantations that add to the appeal of the site.


Grotto Santa Maria


This cave was built in the 18th century by a Dutch priest, featuring the way of the cross, tableaus and a statue of Mary standing on a globe as its main highlights. The site for local Christians and visitors frequent the grotto on Sundays. 

Safari Lagoi



Do you love to look animal and also farm? So this place is perfect to get lost. You can see some animal and the most amazing this is so biggest area. So, keep spirit to explore every spots and get fun there.
