Why Tanjung Uban is special ?

Tanjung Uban is the second largest town after Tanjung Pinang. It is located in the north west coast of Bintan island, hours from Bintan Resorts. The city is renowned for its quaint and rustic atmosphere, Tanjung Uban also offers a window for visitors to sample a truly authentic Indonesian experience.

What to explore at Tanjung Uban?

The tour begins with a visit to a local farm that grows over 20 types of tropical fruits and vegetables. Sample the delicious seasonal fruits which are naturally cultivated.

Drive through the town centre of Tanjung Uban, and see the fast-growing cottage industry businesses like motorcycle repairs, kubah (mosque dome) factories and brick-making factories. The scenic drive brings you through the coastal fishing village, where you will see ‘Bugis’ homes built on stilts, and kelongs staking their positions at sea. Amid swaying coconut trees in the warm tropical breeze, enjoy a refreshing coconut at the local beach.

How to get to Tanjung Uban?

By bus

If you are already in Tanjung Pinang (the province's capital, south to Tanjung Uban), you can take a bus ride from Batu 10 Bus Terminal to Tanjung Uban. The 2-hour trip by bus will cost you Rp. 15.000. Besides, you can also take a speedboat from Tanjung Pinang to Lobam Port and then take ojek (motorcycle taxi) to Tanjung Uban. It will save you a lot of time but it will cost you more.

By boat

Tanjung Uban can be reached from Telaga Punggur sea port (Batam) by speedboat in about 15 minutes. During the monsoon season (October-January), people usually take the slower ferry (locals call it "Ro-Ro") to avoid high wave although it takes about 45-60 minutes trip. The cost for speedboat ride from Tg. Uban - Punggur is about Rp. 30.000-40.000, while the ferry ticket is half of speedboat's ticket.
