Bintan Island is situated inside the Riau Islands Province just 45-50 minutes ferry ride away from Singapore. I remember before I travelled there, I thought that Tanjung Pinang- the capital of Bintan was located in the Riau Province which is part of the Sumatra Island. I did my mini research to find out that Tanjung Pinang, Island of Bintan is actually located near Singapore and is the biggest island among the Riau Archipelago. I was psyched to know about this.
