After lunch, this is the best time to explore Bintan Island and get to know the local cultures here. There are several interesting heritage sites here, but it might be worthwhile to check out the first Chinese settlement in Bintan. Located on the southwest part of the island, you will find quite a few temples with majestic sculptures that were built by the early Chinese settlers.
One of the temples that is a must-see is a 200-year-old temple that is partially engulfed by a large Banyan tree. Take your time to soak in the peaceful sight and pray for good fortunes while you’re here. Another temple worth checking out is the Thousand Face Temple known for the many life-size figures of Buddhist statues. The majestic architecture here will wow you while the carefully-manicured garden will be the perfect setting for visitors to go on a nice stroll.
