A small island in Indonesia, Batam is a beautiful, scenic place only a boat ride away from Singapore. However, there is no shortage of things to do in Batam.

Batam is also a notable destination for state-of-the-art spas, Balinese massages, and a range of local shopping outlets. While great bargains can be struck here for goods, this is also the place for trying cheap, local food like kueh lapis (Indonesian layer cake) and Indomie (instant noodles). As a waterfront destination, Batam offers a large array of land and water sports such as banana boating, windsurfing, or jet-skiing. For a more relaxing activity, visitors can play golf on Batam’s internationally acclaimed golf courses.
