Sightseeing

Taking a half day or a full day excursion on holiday or between conferences is always a wonderful introduction into a new destination, whether to a City like Jakarta to see its landmarks, learn about its history and culture or enjoy its natural surroundings. A day trip around Bali is an experience not to be forgotten, where one begins to understand what makes Bali such an unforgettable destination. Or get away from your five star hotels in Bintan Resort to see the simple fishing villages and visit historic Penyengat island across Tanjung Pinang. Take a seat in a coach offered by travel agents, hire your own car or bike through the country side. There is much to see and experience in Indonesia.
