I am planning for a short weekend getaway from Singapore and thought of going to Bintan Island. I am thinking to take a ferry from Singapore to Bintan, can you advise on what ferry I should take? Are there many ferries to Bintan Island? Also how long is the ferry ride and what is the price? Thanks in advance!
The ferry to Bintan from Singapore will take about 2 hours. The price range from 50-59 USD for a return ticket. These exclude the Indonesia port tax.
Sometimes you may take a tour package that would include your ferry to Bintan plus resorts. There are also resorts such as the Bintan Lagoon Resort that will provide you with the ferry to Bintan as well.
