WELCOME TO BINTAN ISLAND RESORT

The photo was taken travelling on the ferry but some of  my friend thought that it was from airplane. I was writing on the Embarkation Cards given to us (which everyone, including their citizens must fill out). Chances are, if you’ve flown to a different country you’ve been given a card to fill out on arrival. This form, called an embarkation card….anyways let’s proceed.

Actually, my destination was Singapore. This was my 2nd day since I left (Philippines) and when I arrived to Singapore my cousin booked me a ferry ticket going to Bintan Indonesia, the day before my arrival. So here it goes!

Since that was a first time for me to go outside my country  I’ll make sure I have a lots of photo I can keep (So bear with me). These was taken in front of the resort. Upon our arrival, they gave us a drinks  before we get in. The staff of the resort was very accommodating. I don’t remember what kind of drinks it was but it taste good and refreshing (Oh by the way… it was summer days so expect the weather is so hot).

That was their Towel Counter, where you can able to get free use of towel as long as you were there. Okay, again bear with my fats…hahaha!

The view.
Since I wasn’t able to  get a clear copy, I provide a link.

 

 And of course more selfies…haha!
