Barelang Bridge, Batam

#8 of 57 in Things to do in Batam
Admire the engineering ingenuity of Barelang Bridge--actually a chain of six bridges connecting the islands of Batam, Rempang, and Galang, each using a different structural technique. Together they span a total of 2 km (1.2 mi) over a 50 km (31.1 mi) stretch of road. The Tengku Fisabilillah Bridge, the most visually impressive (and most visited) of the six, features a cable-stayed design with two 118 m (387 ft) high pylons. If you forget your camera, professional photographers will take your picture with the bridge in the background.

    Suggest to skip this attraction. Just an average bridge at middle of nowhere. Not a senior friendly attraction too.  more »

    Very popular bridge. Family atmosphere. Selling grilled corn and shrimp breaded and fried skewers. Worth it for a taste of the real life of Indonesians. Gentle hubbub on the bridge. Typical confusion. Why not go?

Where to stay in Batam

Batam offers accommodations ranging from small hotels and apartments to large beach resorts, but without much in the budget department. By far the most popular spot to stay is Nagoya in the center of Batam city, on the north coast of the island. There you'll find plenty of activity, including a range of bars and restaurants, as well as close proximity to the beach. For something a bit quieter, try a spot close to the beach in Nongsa, on the island's east coast.
