Tanjung Pinang is also a great place to visit some local markets and do some shopping if that’s something that’s on your to-do list for vacations. If you do find yourself going around town, make sure to stop by at the Gedung Gonggong, a uniquely-shaped building that serves as a major landmark of the town as well as the Tourist Information Centre. There’s also a sign with the name of the town here, so it’s a perfect photo location.
The Club Med Bintan Excursion to Tanjung Pinang
Our Discover Tanjung Pinang excursion at Club Med Bintan is one of the activities you can sign up for at a small additional cost. During this excursion, you will first be whisked away to a market for you to take in the sites or buy a few things, after which you will enjoy a lovely seafood lunch. Once that is done, you will then take a short boat ride down to Senggarang Village, which is a must-visit location in Bintan.
Senggarang Village is a rustic and slow-paced fishing village which houses a number of Chinese temples. Houses in Senggarang are wooden and constructed on water, each with the traditional design of yesteryear. Senggarang is the perfect place to take a lot of photographs which make it seem like you went back several decades or centuries in time. While the village houses themselves are quaint and charming, the real MVPs in the area are the Chinese temples, especially the Banyan Tree temple which is truly a sight to behold.
Once you’re done exploring the village, you can wind down for the day as you relax with a drink in hand and watch the sun dip into the horizon. Before you head back to our Club Med Bintan resort, end your activities for the day at Tanjung Pinang on an explosive note with a firework show.
