Barelang Bridge, Batam

3.7
#7 of 101 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.

  • Well, it's a landmark. If you wish to you can park your vehicle and take pictures on it. The wind is usually strong and the scenery is great so it's a pretty cool place to be at. Be careful if you wish to step outside the railings because it's really really high up.
  • Jemabatan 1 Barelang or Barelang 1st Bridge that official name is Jembatan Fisabilillah is the longest of the six chain bridges of Jalan Trans Barelang. This popular and iconic bridge is connecting Batam Island it Tonton island and the rest other islands.
