Riau Province

Trip Planner Asia  /  Indonesia  /  Sumatra  /  Riau Province
In spite of large-scale deforestation and the continuing growth of resource-based industries in recent years, a holiday in Riau Province still has plenty to offer. While the province of more than six million people has lost the majority of its forest to logging, it still includes several nature reserves and swamplands with interesting plant and animal life. Gastronomic tours of Riau can sample the interesting blend of Malay and Sumatran cuisines. During your stay, try to pick up a bit of the local Malay dialect, considered one of the least grammatically complex languages in the world. When using our Indonesia road trip website , you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
