Pekanbaru in Indonesia

Less than an hour away from Singapore beholds an underrated and overlooked escape destination. Thanks to budget carrier Scoot, you can now fly directly to Pekanbaru in Indonesia for a quick vacation with activities suited for all ages. Taking over from their sister airline Silkair, Scoot now operates four weekly flights to the exciting capital of Riau.

While still relatively unknown as a tourist destination, Pekanbaru has a host of attractions worthy of a visit. Photography enthusiasts will appreciate the Rainbow Hills – a charmingly colorful sand dune area – and Tujuh Serankai Caves, where one can feel up close with nature. Those looking to immerse themselves in a cultural experience can also see the well-preserved Buddhist site Muara Takus Temple, that will leave visitors in sheer mesmerization.

For the kids, there’s not just one, but two theme parks to get their thrill on! Riau Fantasi boasts the largest waterpark area in the Sumatra, while the Boombara Waterpark is a well-rounded entertainment spot that features a lazy river and giant slides.
