Seeking for a short getaway without any flight expenses involved? Adore the sun, sand and sea? Be away from crowd? Go to Bintan during the weekdays. The accommodation and ferry rides aren't costly but do bear in mind, everything is in SGD. And if you love duty-free shopping for the cheap liquor and cigarettes, there is one before you board the ferry. So... fret not.
Nirwana Resort Hotel
If you love Polo Ralph Lauren, then make your purchases here because the clothes are literally half priced.
The bar at Nirwana Gardens. Don't expect to see people dancing crazy on weekdays but they do play pretty decent RnB.
Treat yourself to something good... Like the massage?
I adore how tranquil this beach is. And it never fails to remind me of a song, "Seaside" by The Kooks. By the way, this beach is located at Nirwana Beach Club and I would say it's much prettier than the one at Nirwana Resort Hotel.
