Barelang Bridge, Batam

3.6
#7 of 103 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. Put Barelang Bridge into our Batam trip builder to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Batam.

  • The bridge is long and quite unique. View shown is also good. Especially when looking at it from a distance a bit far.

  • Currently under renovation the entrance but you still can use small pathways. Good view from the bridge. You'll meet alots of instant photography service here and fried lobster and prawns on stick. It's better to books taxi back to city or travel bus before come here or check the public transportation schedule. It's so hard to find taxi from here, me and my friend ended up ask for motorcycle service to sent us back to where we can take public transportation.
  • This is one of six bridges along Batam Rempang Galang. The best time to go to first bridge is in the morning. Not much people there, and you can have a picture freely. You can park not so far from the stage and walk to instagramable icon. From the stage you can see first and second bridges. Please not to park on the bridge.

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.
