Here in Bintan for a quick getaway with my partner, I figured it would be the perfect opportunity for a walk down memory lane while enjoying the simpler life.
FROM FIVE-STAR RESORT TO OTAK-OTAK
Over the past year, we too had been caught up in “revenge travel” to various far-flung destinations. But for a spur-of-the-moment trip, the plan was to take it easy by returning to this familiar island destination, as it is just a breezy one-hour ferry ride from the Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal.
Like many, we used to spend most of our past trips ensconced in our resort. This time, we resolved to get out of the holiday bubble – at least for a little while. So one lazy morning, we headed to the small town of Kijang in the southeast corner of the Indonesian island, about a 20 minute drive from our hotel, The Residence Bintan.
