    A Short Trip to Bintan

    by Aidy_p Updated Apr 4, 2011
    TL, BC and I Can't Wait to Hit the Beach

    Taking just under an hour to get Bintan, the ferry provides a pleasant and comfortable ride to the resort island of Bintan. It's a resort where you'd get to see a large number of Singaporeans soaking in the sun.

    If you usually get sea-sick, you might like to take your sea sickness pills before your travels. There were times when the sea got a little bit choppy, even on the catamaran. But overall, the ride great.

    Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal, Singapore

    There are several daily ferries from the Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal in Singapore to the Bandar Bentan Telani ferry terminal in northern Bintan inside the Bintan Beach International Resort area. The schedule of the ferries are at the website below and the cost is at the webpage http://www.brf.com.sg/ifos2/fare.htm

    This is the fastest way from Singapore to the beach resort area in northern Bintan. However, if you want to go from Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal to Tanjung Pinang, then you have to take other ferries (e.g. Indo Falcon, Wavemaster, Penguin) and the daily schedule and cost is at:

    How to get to Bintan

    by kiwigal_1 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The best way to get to Bintan is to travel via ferry from Singapore. We bought a package holiday from a New Zealand travel agent that included the ferry ticket from Singapore, transfers to the hotel and our accommodation.

    If you want to though you can book your ferry tickets direct from the company - Bintan Resort Ferries (see the link below).

    ice cream

    It was quite a pleasant 45 minutes ferry ride to Bintan. As you can see, we even enjoyed eating our Magnum ice-cream during the journey.

    Don't forget that Bintan time is 1 hour behind Singapore time. So adjust your watches accordingly.

    The ferry departs 5 times daily. Prices for a return trip cost S$39.20 (less than US$20).

    On board the Ferry to Bintan

    Going to Bintan from Singapore is a breeze. Just click the website link below, book your tickets online and show up at Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal. Alternatively, just turn up there and get your tickets on the spot. It's S$47.20 ( return trip ) in the weekends and S$36.20 in the weekdays. The ferry schedule can be found in the link.The ride on the large, air-conditioned ferry is smooth and barf-free. Just check out my husband's relaxed smile. Pretty good for someone who turns green at the memory of liveonboard diving.

    Getting to Bintan's resorts from Singapore

    by xuessium Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    BintanFerries

    Some folks hop on to Pulau Bintan from Singapore for a good weekend. A consortium of resorts had leased the northern part of this island from the Indonesia Riau Province government. The shorelines with its much better beaches are littered with a number of 3-5 stars resorts.

    BRING YOUR PASSPORTS as you are crossing International borders.

    To get to the island, take the MRT to Tanah Merah MRT station, turn right as you get down the escalator to reach the bus stop for SBS Transit Bus 35 which will bring you to Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal. (20 minutes journey)

    You can buy tickets here (S$45 pax) or you can go through a tour agency earlier. Some nationalities will need VISAs to enter Indonesia, while some nationalities can pay an on-the-spot VISA for US$20. (http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/8f969/12a768/1/)

    - Remember to re-confirm the departure schedule for returing to singapore.
    - Most resort can arrange pick up / drop off from ferry terminal to Resort (as well as Resort to terminal)

    Bintan Resort Ferries was established in January 1994 to provide a comfortable and safe travel between Singapore and Bintan Resorts.

    I think it's the most comfortable way to go to Bintan Island. Spacious and safe. They have a booth at Tenah Merah Ferry terminal and all the cab drivers know this place.

    Getting to Bintan (Tanjung Pinang) from Singapore

    by xuessium Updated Jun 21, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the true Indonesian part of the island and getting to the main town Tanjung Pinang on the island requires you to purchase a ferry ticket from the Singapore Cruise Centre inside Harbourfront .(nearest MRT: Harbourfront) Ticket price starts from around S$40.

    There are also services departing from Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal (nearest MRT: Tanah Merah and transfer to bus service 35).

    Different ferry services depart from different locations so make sure you are departing from the right terminal.

    Convenient Ferries to Bintan from Singapore

    by Emile72 Written Sep 6, 2007

    Best and probably only (?) way to go to Bintan from Singapore (you can arrive through Indonesia as well though!) is by Ferry. Ferries leave from the Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal, which is on the road to the airport.
    Time takes about 55minutes.

    For reservation enquiries, please call 65424369 or email to reservations@brf.com.sg. You can also book online at http://www.brf.com.sg/ifos2/index.jsp

    Roundtrip is about 55Singapore Dollars.

    Visiting Tanjong Pinang

    by Aidy_p Written May 26, 2007
    Standing Beside Our Trusty Vehicle

    A trip to Tanjong Pinang came at quite a price - US$50+ per person. But it's much safer and reliable then any taxis on the island. Check with your resort about this day trip to Tanjong Pinang. Throw in another US$5 for the driver to bring you to Mana Mana for a varied host of sea sports.

    Not like other places around Indonesia, you do not have to worry about crafty taxi drivers who are all out to flog you dry of your money. Everything within the Bintan Resorts - From the ferry ride, to the transfer and resorts - are all controlled by the resort owners.

    These transfers have been worked into the cost of your earlier payment for your stay in Bintan. Just make sure you look for the correct bus to the correct resort.

    Ferry boat at Tanjung Pinang, Bintan
    4 more images

    If you want to travel to Bintan from Batam, then you need to go to the Punggur ferry terminal located at the south-eastern end of Batam to take the regular ferries (about half to one hour intervals) to Tanjung Pinang in Bintan (about 1 hour) or Tanjunguban in Bintan (about 20 minutes). The ferry to Tanjung Pinang cost about US$7 return. From Tanjung Pinang, you can take speed boats to other islands e.g. Pulau Singkep (see my VT Pulau Singkep and VT Pulau Lingga pages). From Tanjunguban, you can take land transport to the nearby Bintan Beach International Resort (comprising of many resorts for tourists) or all the way to Tanjung Pinang.
