IslaNd with two name

Yeah! Karimun ... believed or not, some Indonesian they dont know where is Karimun? OK..this island actually famous with another name ... Tg. Balai. I am not really sure why they have two different name. To get here, you need to take a boat of ferry, either from Spore (harbour Front) or Johor, Malaysia (P.Gudang); but not really sure from this port. Usually, I will take a ferry from Spore, since it's more closer to Karimun, and also I flew down from KL to Spore. Purposed of course for work, and this island only a small island. Main town, its too small but many tourist come here for shopping. The good things is, their price are cheaper than other city in Indonesia, either in batam or Jakarta (sure!).
