2011 Bintan International Kite Festival
I have never been into any kite festivals yet but I would definitely love to see such event like this. I still remember when I was a kid, I enjoyed flying my own kite throughout the fields and roofs of our house with my brother. It is a different feeling like you can just fly in the air and see the beauty from up above. That weekend getaway at Bintan made it possible.
It was the 2011 Bintan International Kite Festival held on the beachfront of Nirwana Beach Club. A 2-day event (Dec 11 and 12) that was participated by foreign teams from Singapore, Thailand, the Philippines and Malaysia.
I did not know at all that there would be an event at that time. It was such a good thing. A good timing for visiting Bintan Island.
I was just lazy the whole day that I did not even bother to get out of the resort area. Besides I was enjoying the kites over the blue skies.
