If you're in Indonesia and find yourself facing a view that looks like this, stick around.

Padang

You're in a Masakan Padang restaurant, and lunch - a good, hearty, spicy, oh-so-tasty lunch - is on its way....

In fact, if you're lost and hungry anywhere in this country, this is all you need to find :)

Singaporeans regard Tanjung Pinang, the capital of Bintan Island, as the gritty city that they need to get through on the way to a squeaky-clean beach resort. They're missing a lot.

Located two hours away by ferry, this city once hosted the Malay empire's seat of government, before the Dutch and the British arrived to dismember it.


TP05

Traditional culture remains strong; Locals at Penyengat Island (off the coast) indulge in a game of sepak takraw in front of the ancient Raya Mosque.

 

TP06

 

Sunset at Jalan Merdeka, where the seaside promenade becomes host to a bustling night food market.


TP07

 

Early morning finds rowboats ferrying folks from the nearby kampung air  - water villages on stilts - to shore.


TP08

A familiar scene anywhere: a kids runs after resident pigeons, this time at a local Buddhist temple serving the city's large Chinese population.

 

Just a two-hour ferry ride from Singapore, Tanjung Pinang is an easy getaway from the sterile, hectic Lion City.
