Tanjung Pinang简称TG Pinang。中文音译“丹戎槟榔”或“丹戎宾南”。它是印尼廖内群岛省（Riau islands，见上图的红圈标识）的省会（Capital，位于上图靠下的红圈）。从新加坡的Tanan Merah码头买60块新元的来回票坐船过去只要两个小时就到了。
Foreigners, including Chinese, Indian, American, British, and Australian, can get a Visa-on-Arrival at the custom of TG. Pinang. (See the picture above)
The Visa fee is US$ 10 for 7 days and US$ 25 for 30 days.
That’s much more convenient for travellers. I had to pay 70 Singapore dollars and queue twice to get a visa before I came to Indonesia one year ago.
The two buildings in front are bird nest houses, houses for swallow. Local Chinese people build the houses for swallow and collect the nests. Swallow’s nest is an expensive invigorant in Chinese society.

市中心街道3（Downtown Street 3）
Interestingly, the street name is written in Indonesian and Arabic, though I did not see one single Arab there.
Chinese products are penestrating the Indoesian market. Though the reputation of the Chinese products are not so good there, I have seen Chinese electronic appliances, motorcycles, packaged snacks, etc. selling on in TG. Pinang.

That is the only news about China I could found on the news paper.

The Indonesian Gini coefficient is around 0.33, which is lower than many Chinese cities. But the wealth inequality is much more obvious than that in China.
In TG Pinang, a maid’s (domesitc worker) salary ranges from 30 to 60 Singapore dollar(S$). (US$20 ~40) Much lower than that in China. A man working in a factory can bring home S$100 every month. An experienced degree holder can earn S$400 to S$1000 a month.
TG Pinang是位于明丹岛（Bintan Island）上的一个镇。明丹岛的面积两倍于新加坡。它有很漂亮的海滩，也有一个很不错的度假村和高尔夫球场。不过我这一次没有去。
TG Pinang sits in the south of the Bintan island. It has some beautiful beaches and a nice resort.
