One of the utter joys about living in Singapore is fuss-free Changi Airport, which sees you painlessly floating through customs and onto the plane in no time. Impossibly, there’s an even easier chance to get away from it all – good ol’ Bintan! Ferries from Tanah Merah – near the airport – take just 45 minutes to reach the gorgeous island. There’s no need for massive amounts of planning either (same currency and everything) – just grab your passport and go.
So imagine how chuffed we were when the Great Bintan Sale was launched this month. Six all-in-one Great Bintan Sale itineraries are now active across a variety of hotels and resorts, and include accommodation, ferries, land transfers and a selection of activities to suit everyone. We’re talking families, golfers, best friends, spa lovers and romancers.
All the deals must be booked before 15 September 2013, but you can travel on every day of the week until 15 December 2013.
