I don’t really have much things to say about Batam, because MY CAMERA GOT STOLEN THERE. My bag was slit. And also, some locals showed us the middle finger.
But here are some not-to-bad memories, anyway. Personally, if you ask me, I wouldn’t recommend that you go Batam on TOUR–better to spend it on a staycation in Singapore. But I think Batam on homestay would be awesome, especially if you have friends there, because they will protect you. 🙂
