What We Love About Batam

Batam might be an Indonesian island but it is closer to Singapore than it is to the capital of Jakarta! Head over to the main city of Nagoya and spend the day shopping at the city's largest shopping mall – Nagoya Hill Shopping Mall. Or, discover the historical site of Batam such as the Vietnamese Camp and the Galang Memorial Wall – one of the biggest refugee camps in the region. Don't miss out on water sports activities such as parasailing, water skiing, jet skiing or even visit the biggest inflatable water theme park at Sea Forest Adventure! After all the activities, indulge in some R&R by treating yourself at the spa with an aromatherapy massage.
