“Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.”Gustav Flaubert
My family and I visited Batam Islands, Indonesia in 2008.
We went from Singapore to Batam Islands in a ferry through the sea.(45 min)
Enroute, we could also see a lot of huge Cargo ships.
Other than Malaysia, Batam is probably the next easiest place for you to take a quick getaway from Singapore without flying, and is immensely popular with Singaporeans who want a cheap, easy holiday with minimal travelling required. For Indians, the Visa can be received on arrival, which is quite convenient.
We stayed there at a family friend’s house, for 2 days.
In my personal opinion, Batam islands doesn’t have much to see. But People in Singapore and Malaysia come in large numbers to enjoy Batamian food (price is also low).
