As Sweet As Honeyy

Bintan. Trikora Beach. Day Three Four Five.

Our way from Lagoi to Trikora

We stayed at Bintan Agro Beach Resort. They have a pretty good beach. And if its prices compared to Lagoi's, Trikora's way much cheaper at everything for sure.

Another days spent with sitting, holding beer and ciggy, and cycling along the beach. But all of sudden the sky becoming dark, heavy rain pouring with lightning and thunder outside. Scary but me likey!
As the rain stopped, we both took a walk to Sunmoon Kelong Resto where it's still in Bintan Agro area.

Last day! Means, time to back home. Time to catch the flight. SAD.
I've to back there one day!

As Sweet As Honey

Bintan. Lagoi Beach. Day One Two Three.
After preparing all those wedding thingy, we planned to take 5 days to refresh body and mind, and Bintan was our choice. In short, we got direct flight from Jakarta and landed on Raja Haji Fisabilillah, a small airport in Tanjung Pinang, South Bintan. Then using airport taxi to take us to Lagoi, the famous beach in North Bintan. It took about 2 hours by road, but I could say that it all worth it.

We stayed at Mayang Sari for 3 days, one of resort in Nirwana Gardens where we could see beach as we sit in our terrace chalet.
We both did nothing but strolling over the beach, walking barefoot, enjoying blue sky, warmth of sunshine, white sand, clean air, beautiful beach and having beers and ciggy in our hands. Since both R and I have sinusitis, so diving or even snorkeling is not on our list. Just like, NEVER.
In one evening, before sunset, we tried The Kelong Resto, a famous seafood resto in Bintan.Just like most services in Lagoi resorts, Kelong Resto is fairly expensive and using Singapore Dollars as currency as well. We pay using Rupiah, but we got Singapore Dollars in return. Considering their view, taste of food, and services, Kelong Resto's prices are very reasonable.Anyway, from all visitors at that time, R and I were the only Indonesian tourist. Approx 1 - 2% Indonesian visitors each month, the rest is Singaporean, Malaysian and Australian. So everyday we're having breakfast, the waiter himself visiting our table over and over again, and keep talking using Bahasa Indonesia, since it's been like forever since his last time met Indonesian guests.

Then we moved to Trikora beach, East Bintan, on our third day.
