Know Before You Go

Please review the following information before your departure to ensure that any surprises along the way will only be pleasant ones.

Getting Ready to Go

Trip Preparation:

A little pre-planning can make your trip go a lot smoother. Several weeks before your trip, make a list of what you will need to take with you. Make sure your personal documents (passports, visas) are in order and that you have enough prescription medications to last through the trip. We suggest that you make photocopies of passports, visas, and any other important travel documents and pack them separately from the originals. Pack a list of medications including dosage and generic names. If you lose the originals while traveling, you'll have copies for easier reporting and replacement. We recommend that you pack a portable alarm clock

Climate & Clothing

Bintan Island enjoys a sunny, tropical climate all year round, with temperatures ranging between 21°C to 32°C. The monsoon period starts from late November and ends in early March, with strong winds, frequent rain and volatile waves, so for those who plan to indulge in some water sports, it is advisable to plan a trip here during the dry season, which is between late March to early November, as the seas are calmer and the days are sunnier. Humidity levels are also high on this island, so visitors should bring light clothing for maximum comfort. Plenty of sunscreen is also essential, as it’s fairly easy to get burnt

Time Zone 

Bintan island is 7 hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT+7)

Currency information

The local currency is called Indonesia Rupiah. One USD is worth approximately 9,140 (2011). One Rp = 100 sen. Bills come in denominations of Rp 100, 500, 1000, 5000, 10,000, 20,000, 50,000 and 1,00,000. Coins come in denominations of Rp 5, 10, 25, 50 and 100.

Bintan Island’s main currency is the same as the rest of Indonesia – the Rupiah. However, Singapore Dollars are widely-accepted here, particularly in touristy areas. In some places, the US Dollar is also accepted. Most hotels and resorts here accept major credit cards such as Visa, MasterCard and American Express. However, it is advisable that you obtain some local currency before heading off anywhere, especially if you’re planning on visiting local markets. It is worth to note that all transactions in Tanjung Pinang are conducted in Rupiah, so be sure to bring enough when visiting this town.

There are ATM machines in major towns, and most large resorts offer money-changing facilities. Banks provide currency exchange services during weekdays between 09:00 to 15:00. Be sure to count your money after exchanging it, particularly from independent money changers, as cheating has been reported in the past. Credit card frauds also occur, so whenever possible, do not allow your credit card out of your sight when making purchases.

Electricity

Cities run on 220 volts, 50 cycles AC system. Rural areas may only be able to provide 110 volts

Business hours

Most government offices are open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Commercial offices and businesses are open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. for Saturdays. Hours for businesses and commercial offices are staggered

 

Public Holidays

 

Bintan Island’s national holidays include New Year’s Day (January 1), Chinese New Year, Islamic New Year (first day of the Islamic month of Muharram), The Prophet Muhammad’s Birthday (12th day of the Islamic month of Rabi-al Awwal), The Prophet Muhammad’s Ascension Day (27th day of the Islamic month of Rajab), Good Friday (the Friday preceding Easter Sunday), Wesak Day (the first full moon day in May), Independence Day (August 17), Eid-ul Fitri (first and second day of the Islamic month of Syawal), Eid-ul Adha (10th day of the Islamic month of Zulhijjah) and Christmas Day (December 25). During these days, most businesses are closed and things can get pretty quiet

 

Tipping

 

Tipping is not compulsory on Bintan Island, as an additional 20% is almost always added on to your bill for goods and services – 10% for Government Tax and 10% for Service Charge - but a small tip is always welcome if the service rendered has been exceptionally good

 

Language

 

Being an Indonesian region, Bahasa Indonesia is widely spoken here and is the island’s main language. The language spoken here is the Riau Malay version, which is regarded as the purest form of the Malay language, so visitors from Malaysia would feel quite at home here as they will find that the language spoken is easily understood, almost similar to the version spoken back home.Tanjung Pinang has a sizable Chinese population that speaks the Fujian and Chaozhou dialects, as well as Mandarin. English is also widely spoken in major towns and in resort areas.

Water Quality

It is generally safe to drink water straight from the tap in major resorts, but to stay on the safe side it is advisable that you only consume bottled mineral water. The water at Bintan Resorts is certified safe by World Health Organization standards. Any water obtained outside the resort’s grounds – even for brushing teeth – should be boiled or sterilized first.Only eat well-cooked meat and fish. Vegetables should be cooked and fruit peeled.

Local Customs & Practices

Most public toilets – except at major resorts and hotels – are of the squatting kind. Instead of a bowl for you to sit on, the ‘bowl’ looks like a hole in the floor. You’re supposed to squat over this hole with your legs placed on both sides to do your business. It is also common practice to wash yourself with soap and water afterwards instead of using toilet paper, so don’t be surprised if you don’t see any toilet paper around.

 

It is considered improper to eat or give/receive things using your left hand. Always use the right hand for such purposes.

 

When passing a lit cigarette to somebody, don’t do it with the lit end pointing towards the receiver. It is considered rude to do so. Likewise when passing a sharp object to another person, like knives or scissors – keep the sharp point away from the receiver.

 

Whenever possible, try to memorize some basic Malay words such as ‘Terima Kasih’ or ‘Selamat Pagi’. It will not only gain you respect from the locals but you are also less likely to be fleeced off by unscrupulous people.

 

Handshakes are usually in the form of a ‘salam’, where you lightly touch the hands of the person you are greeting with both hands, before bringing your hands to your chest - a gesture that symbolically means ‘I greet you with my heart and I accept your greeting with all my heart’. It is not necessary to ‘salam’ a lady – just a smile and a nod of acknowledgment would suffice – unless the lady offers her hands first.

 

Make sure to let the host know first before coming over for a visit. Unannounced visits are not very welcome, as it is customary for the locals to prepare something for their guests beforehand. Don’t forget to remove your shoes first before entering a local’s home.

 

It is considered rude to point at someone or something with your forefinger. Instead, use the thumb of your right hand with the other four fingers folded underneath.

 

The majority of Bintan population is Muslim, so drinking is not a common practice here and alcohol is not publicly sold, except in bars and pubs. Refrain from drinking in front of a Muslim as it is considered impolite and disrespectful to do so.

 

Making Telephone Calls from One Country to Another

 

When dialing a number from one country to another, you should proceed as follows: dial your country's Exit Code + destination Country Code + Phone Number.

For most countries, the exit code is 00. Exceptions include the USA and Canada (011), Hong Kong (001), Australia (0011), and Russia (8 Pause 10*). For Brazil, please consult with the local telephone company. If the international number you wish to call starts with a 0 (zero), you must drop this starting digit when dialing the number.
