The Sand Dune of GurunPasir
Originally a mining site, GurunPasir has some of the most impressive dunes you’ll see in the South East Asian region. These make for amazing photo ops as the sun-bleached dunes contrast perfectly with the clear blue skies of the horizon.
The Blue Lake
Surrounded by the Bintan Beachand white dunes, the Blue Lake is a serene pool of water that shimmers in azure under the bright tropical sun. This is a fantastic location to visit if you’re looking for a bit of seclusion and peace-of-mind.
500 Lohan Temple
The 500 Lohan Temple is a stunning historical landmark that displays the influence Chinese architecture has had on Bintan. Here, you’ll find 500 life-sized statues, all wearing different facial expressions. Standing among this stone crowd can be somewhat surreal, and it definitely makes for a great snapshot. If you’re staying at one of the popular Bintan resorts– such as the Bintan Lagoon Resort – be sure to make a trip here, it won’t take you more than 2 hours!
A cruise through the mangrove swamps can net you a whole array of photo opportunities. From the stunning sunset to all the vibrant birds and animals that live amongst the swamp. If you visit during the twilight hours, you’ll even be treated to the wondrous sight of hundreds of fireflies lighting up the place.
