    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    Spanning 45km X 25km, this small yet busy island of Indonesia has a population of close to a million people, and holds hundreds of multinational owned factories, towns and shopping centers. It is also the gateway to the Riau Islands. Located 20km from Singapore and 25km away from Johor in Malaysia, Batam is the island where new economic policies and ideas are tested out on before being adopted at a bigger scale. The few main cities in Batam are: Nagoya(Lubuk Baja),Nongsa,Batam Centre,Sekupang,Sei Jodoh and Telaga Punggur.

    Even though the official language on the island is Indonesian, Chinese dialects and Mandarin is widely used due to the large Chinese population.

    Most tourists, from nearby Singapore, visit the island for her prostitution and illegal casinos. If none of these has of particular interest to you, Bintan would be a better choice for a resort vacation.

    Other than the reasons mention above. A new addition to Batam would be Montigo Resort that would worth a visit.
