Penyengat Island Heritage Tour

Bintan Island, Indonesia

Escape the modernity of everyday life and journey back in time. A time when Kings and Queens ruled the islands of the Riau Kingdom stretching from what is now part of Indonesia, to Singapore and beyond to southern Malaysia. Your journey skirts past the tallest mountain on the island- Gunung Bintan with verdant jungles on its slopes. You will soon arrive at a predominantly Chinese coastal village famous for its alleyways that crisscross over the sea.
Here your historical journey begins as you board a “water taxi” that will take you back in time to Penyengat Island. From here, the adventure continues in a Baechak (motorized trishaw) along ancient streets paved with history. The island and all its attractions are pending listing as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. This is the abode of the kings of the last phase of the Malay Kingdom. Here, the ruins of an old palace, the Royal Mosque, and the mausoleum are all adorned in hues of yellow and green. Here the rusting cannons that defended the locals against the Dutch invaders still cast their glances over the sea and the sounds of a bygone era still echo in the wind.
