Singapore Life 3 - Regional Travel

One of the attractions to staying in Singapore is its proximity to other destinations in southeast asia. And, although many of us are loving the Singapore lifestyle so far, we are not wasting any time in discovering this. This weekend, the destination was Bintan, an Indonesian Island accessable by a short ferry ride from Singapore. The attraction? Beaches. About 40 of us made the voyage, which enabled us to pretty much take over the resort and the patch of beach situated in front of it. The entire trip lasted less than 48 hours, which was not long enough to qualify for duty free, but long enough to have some fun. I can't say that there was much by way of cultural discovery, but the beach was fantastic and it was a great opportunity to get to know a few of my classmates.

A few more pictures from the trip can be found here.
