Scooter Rental Bintan  (3 Answers)

Hi,

Since I won a voucher for Bintan Lagoon Resort, I want to stay one night there.
But since I am also interested in travelling around the Island, I am thinking about renting a scooter for two days and make the following trip:
- Arrive in Tanjung Pinang Friday evening. Stay 1 night
- Rent the Scooter on Saturday morning, travel via Trikora Beach to Bintan Lagoon Resort
- 1 Night @ Lagoon Resort
- Travel back to Tanjung Pinang

Is this possible at all? Can you recommend a scooter rental @ Tanjung Pinang?

Thanks a lot for your replies!

Best regards,
Marc
