Enjoying the spectacular view 

About 5,000 ft in the sky

Ever sat in an airplane and wondered how it would feel to be on the other side of it or how it would feel to touch the clouds?
Over here you get to sit in an amphibious open cockpit aircraft, Its very much like how a convertible is to a sedan. You not only get to feel the the wind directly against yourself, you also get an unobstructed view of the entire island of Bintan.

Imagine the airplane you're in landing on the water!! It would be an exhilarating experience.

3. 500 Lohan Temple

Giant Buddha on the wall

It is definitely a sight to witness a whopping total of 500 unique life-sized stone statues nicely lined up spread over a wide area. You may even see familiar faces such as  General "Guan Yu" and "Tripitaka". Being in the temple makes yourself feel that you have been transported back into the Chinese dynasty, and along with it comes a sense of peace and calmness that cannot be explained.

Mangrove Forest

Bintan is well known for its dense mangrove forest and it is a sight to behold to see the reflections of the mangroves reflect off the river.

Beautiful birds along the mangrove tour

You even get to come in close proximity with beautiful kingfishers, and if you're lucky the tour would bring you through crevices under large rocks. A mangrove tour may not be as exciting as white water rafting, but it does provide calmness and beautiful scenery. So instead of crashing waves you now get to take superb photographs for  Instagram
