Tanjung Pinang - Fisherman's Life - Photo 12

Tanjung Pinang or Tanjungpinang is the capital and second largest city of the Indonesian province of Riau Islands after Batam. A city with about 200,000 residents, it is a trading port between islands in the Riau archipelago. Tanjung Pinang is located on south of Bintan island and has ferry and speedboat connections to Batam, Singapore (40 km away), and Johor Bahru.

On a recent trip to Tanjung Pinang, Bintan, Indonesia, I had a glimpse of the life of a fisherman in a fishing village. Here's a collection of the shots taken.
