On my last birthday celebration, the family had a blast of it in a resort in Samal Island in the country. The island is best known for its white sand beaches and other spots, which are inviting for a whole family to spend a day or two. That is actually one of the many reasons why I opted to stick on that celebration instead of staying at home and just merely having karaoke session with my family friends. I first made sure that not only me who will sure to enjoy the day but also my son, the kids in the family, my family per se and my invited friends.
Remembering the two weeks before my birthday, I and hubby argued where to spend my celebration because of possible inevitable situations to happen. But thanked God the Lord has given me what my heart desired. I actually wanted to supposedly spend that big day outside of the country. Perhaps any southeast Asian country will do. One of the nearest in the country is Indonesia, specifically in Bintan Island.
The very first reason is that, honestly, is that it is accessible from the city we are living. We sure won’t be spending more bucks to travel to another city airport just to take a plane to fly to Indonesia. Another is that the county has requires no visa for any tourist to visit there. So whether will I be flying alone or with my whole family, I will sure to still save bucks on getting a visa and also, anytime we wanted to fly in the country, I got no issues and can visit the country anytime I wanted to – even a day before my birthday or exactly on that day. And lastly, there are great islands in Indonesia where the family can enjoy, and as mentioned above, one of the many islands in Indonesia that every tourist wanted to visit is the Bintan Island.

Bintan Island is one of many well-known islands in Indonesia where one can find numerous resorts and vacation stops for the whole family. Tourist spots here also offer relaxing ambiance, which are the best places to try for a three-day escape from the busy and stressful life in the city. And in fact, the island is the largest island in the Riau Islands province where a variety of exciting events can be done including water sports activities, leisure and even shopping for great souvenir items.
However, since we only have a very limited budget for the said getaway, the family just settled for the lesser expense celebration, but still in a resort, in Samal Island here in the country. Hopefully, the family can spend a day or two outside the country soon.
