    Miscellaneous: For charging electronic items like camera, handphones etc, it is advicable to bring along suitable adapters for the electrical socket.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Sleeveless or short sleeves tee for the hot and humid weather.

    Bermudas or shorts or 3/4 pants for the beach.

    Comfortable walking shoes or slippers for the beach.

    Bring your medications and other emergency medical supplies...

    Photo Equipment: Bring a camera to capture the moments while relaxing. Bring loads of compact flash and films if you take loads of pictures.

    Bring Your Suntan Lotion!

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Flip flops and sandals are most ideal in Bintan as most of the time, you will probably visit some of the panoramic beaches.

    Photo Equipment: Most of the hotels offer photo developing services, even for digital images.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: If you go out to the sea often, bring or buy a dry bag there to protect your camera and other electronics equipment.

    Miscellaneous: There is a very well-stocked minimart in Pasar Oleh Oleh and you can probably buy everything you need for your trip in Bintan over there, including the much needed sunblock. At this minimar, the things are still more than reasonably priced.

    Mosquito repellent and sun tan lotion

    by phil_uk_net Written Jan 5, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: The minimum if you are on a weekend trip from Singapore. A pair of shorts, some sandals and your bathing costume.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: The mossies can be a problem so bring some repellent.
    The sun is strong even when it is overcast so slip, slop, slap as the Aussies say. I didn't and suffered a nice red face!

    Photo Equipment: Of course, to capture your weekend.
