My sister, her family, my parents, Hub & I together went for a 5-day trip to Bintan Lagoon Resort from 17 to 21 Dec 07. In order to enjoy 'big family' living, we booked a 4-bedroom villa (S$600 per nite). Yup, you heard it right. It's in S$. But .... it looks more like a nicer chalet with full facility kitchen. But the good thing is, you get a buggy to drive 'play' with.
Prior to the trip, our research and talks with some friends reveal that food is expensive in the resort. and it'll cost S$6 per person to take a bus to the 1 and only town called Pasar Ole Ole. As such, we decide to pack some food (noodles, spaghetti, canned food & what not) to cook so that we will not end up burning holes every meal in the cafes and restaurants for the 10 of us. That was the best decision we made for the trip.
After 3 days of eating 'in' (I mean self cook meals), we decided to reward ourselves with a nice dinner at the restaurant. Buffet costs S$50 for adults & $40 for children. Yes, yo...
