About travel to Batam


Batam is one of two largest of the Riau Islands in Indonesia. There are over 3,000 islands in the Riau Archipelago, and because of its great transport links to Singapore and Malaysia, Batam is one of the main starting points for exploring the Riau Islands and onward overland travel through Indonesia towards Bali.

Batam is a heavily populated and industrialised island, with an estimated population in excess of 1 million people and thousands of factories, many foreign owned. Batam is a designated special economic zone with duty free stores and a more relaxed attitude to the consumption of alcohol than is common in the rest of Malaysia. Batam has some beach resorts, golf courses, and other lesiure activities, and receives large numbers of leisure visitors from Singapore in particular, but it is not a family friendly holiday destination in the same way as Langkawi. Batam, and in particular the district of Nagoya, has a well earned reputation for drugs, prostitution and crime. Large numbers of migrant male workers and visiting businessmen go to Nagoya for its night time entertainment. Unless you are with reliable local guides then a night out in Nagoya has a high probability of ending with your money either being stolen or exhorted from you.
