Although the island of Batam is a designated free trade zone, you'll find that there's still endless open space, both surrounded by water and land-logged, where to this day, it feels like you're the only one there and the silence is deafening. Batam's awesome natural environment is as inviting as ever to nature-lovers and adventurers.
As a matter of fact, situated as near to Singapore as it is, Batam is a favorite resort location for residents and international tourists alike, keen for a nature excursion, a weekend of R & R, or perhaps looking to spend a little longer, playing golf, sailing or scuba-diving. Indeed, Batam is ideal for short and long holidays, especially given its myriads of fun-filled activities, mouth watering seafood, luxurious spa establishments, countless duty-free shopping opportunities and the fact that it's the place to be good old family fun.
Is golf your passion? Then you should know that Batam has no fewer than six golf courses, each of them not just breathtakingly beautiful, but a challenge and a half. One of the better-known golf courses is Batam's Palm Springs Golf and Country Club, conveniently located a mere two minutes away from Batam's Nongsapura Ferry Terminal. Or pit your handicap against Batam's Indah Puri Golf Resort. Set in lush greenery and ringed by water, Indah Puri Golf Resort is designed by world-renowned golf architect Ronald Fream.
Or maybe you're aching to get some serious retail-therapy below your belt? Then head for the Nagoya Superblock. Its offerings include 450 kiosks and 170 shops, as well as a Hypermarket on Nagoya Hill.
Speaking of Nagoya, this major Batam district offers not just shops, but restaurants, hotels, spas, dance clubs, karaoke, cinema bars, music lounges and complete shopping plazas too. The Lucky Plaza and Jodoh Square for instance have shops and boutiques selling Indonesian art and crafts. Not to mention lots of branded luxury items. And Nagoya after sunset is a veritable night-life paradise, with dance clubs, karaokes, cinema bars and music lounges. Nagoya, never a dull moment.
If you're into sight-seeing, then rest assured that Batam has plenty too. In fact, visiting the six Barelang Filsabillah Bridges is a must for all Batam visitors. This iconic project was designed and constructed solely by Indonesian engineers. Another one of Batam's main draws is the Maha Vihara Duta Maitreya, one of the largest Buddhist temples in South East Asia.
After working up an appetite, make your way to one of the various seafood eateries or fine-dining restaurants that Batam offers. Food or "makan" as it's called in Indonesia, is ever so varied in Batam. From fast food, to local specialties, Chinese, Japanese, Korean and other nationalities and even vegetarian restaurants, it's all here. And it's affordable too. Selamat makan!
Lastly, for your information, The island of Batam has six ferry terminals and the ferry is actually quite cheap. So bon voyage :)
