Located just off the eastern coast of Sumatra, nuzzled up against the Singaporean coast, Batam is one of the most picturesque islands in the Riau Archipelago, and also one of the most modernised areas in Indonesia. Its proximity to Singapore also makes it one of the most visited weekend getaway destination for residents from the island nation that are looking for a retreat, and some fresh ocean air. Batam consists of three principal islands, Batam, Rempang, Galang, and a smattering of other smaller islands.
Batam is one of Indonesia's most scenic regions, replete with beautiful vistas, lush forested coasts, sprawling resorts and golf courses, large malls, and some great opportunities for adventure. It is the perfect tourist destination, filled with places for recreation, beautiful scenery and great, cheap food and drink.
Batam is most famous for its beaches and water-themed adventure sports, and of course, its large immaculately maintained golf courses. It also is home to the largest Buddhist temple in South-East Asia and has perfect bike and hike trails along its northern coast. Thus, Batam is an all-rounded experience for any tourist.
