How To Spend 48 Hours On Bintan Island, Indonesia, Including A Swim At a Crystalline Lagoon
Those looking for more than idling by the beach, the blog Culture Trip came up with a post with entertaining panoramas to fill up a 48 hour-itinerary to explore Bintan Island, Indonesia. The island is also host to the world’s most popular Public Access Lagoon (PAL), created and developed by the multinational Crystal Lagoons®.
For Singaporeans, Bintan is a convenient island getaway. For Indonesians, it’s an upscale resort destination unlike anywhere else in the country. This spot in Indonesia’s Riau Islands has something for everyone, whether you booked that ferry ride for outdoor adventures or fascinating cultural experiences. Here are some of Culture Trip’s recommendations for a short weekend getaway to Bintan, which fully recommends visiting the Crystal Lagoons amenity.
Start the day right by getting yourself acquainted with Bintan’s amazing landscape at the helm of an ATV. Tourists can sign up for a session of this adventurous ride at most resorts, driving through jungles, hills and coastlines. This wild ride is perfect for couples, groups and even families. Tourists can start with an instructor before venturing off to conquer the muddy, challenging trails themselves.
Leisure time at Crystal Lagoons
Southeast Asia’s first Crystal Lagoons amenity, Treasure Bay, which opened in 2015, offers endless activities. If its relaxation you have in mind, lounge on the daybed or hover around on a pool float while sipping on cold drinks at a 150 acre artificial saltwater lagoon. More energetic travelers can swim or try one of the watersports activities offered on-site.
The complex opens daily from 09:00 to 18:00. For more information regarding entrance fees: Treasure Bay Bintan
Crystal Lagoons is an international innovation company, founded by scientist Fernando Fischmann, which has developed a patent-protected technology that allows the construction and maintenance of unlimited-size clear water lagoons at very low costs.
