The bridge is an icon of barelang islands. Its a nice place to spend the afternoon with friends n family. You can taste fresh coconut water n grilled corn with affordable price at many outlets around. Better visit the bridge in the afternoon.

it just doesn't worth taking a tour coming here. There are many bridges along the way and this is the so-called 'prettiest'. We passed by this bridge as we heading for a fishing ground, if not i wont just come here for the bridge.

This is my 3rd times went to this monumental bridge of Batam, and it’s getting worse by the time. Not the bridge, but the cleanliness of visitor plaza near the bridge.

Barelang bridge is symbol of batam, it assemble islan near batam. If you come to batam no come to this place majority people will say that you never put your step in batam. This bridge normally will look from airplane before your landing in hang nadim, international batam airport. So you should come and see it. Worthed for batam sightseeing.

It's not complete if you're in Batam but haven't gone to Barelang. As the icon of Batam city, Barelang offers a good view of sunset, information of the bridges, and any delicious local foods!

It is a huge bridge connecting a few islands in Batam. There are 6 bridges in total, located in different locations. Most people will just take photo at the first section.
