I'm bring 4 kids along and is our 1st time there.
We are staying at Bintan Lagoon. Thus don't want to carry to much food stuffs.
I would like to know is there any shop nearby instead of the resort to get Fresh milk, bread or drinks? Will the cost the same as resort?
Anyone tried their snorkeling trip and how much?
How is the water now, as it's clear?
Can it be done on their beach w/out the trip?
I may be wrong as things may have changed but youo are most unlikely to find a local grocery of any kind near the resorts (since the entire northern area of Bintan is owned by the Bintan Resorts Group)....
Your best chance is likely to be @ Pasar Oleh Oleh, connected to the resorts by shuttle buses and those at the Ferry Terminal.....
