"Batam has a island population..." Indonesia Favorite Tip by ombre
Indonesia General: 282 reviews and 251 photos
Favorite thing: Batam has a island population of roughly 750 thousand and has just enough to provide a tourist with both a view of 3rd world living and reasonable resorts for that type of travel. I found Batam to be a good experience and also made me appreciate how luckily some of us really are.very shortly when i get back my photo,s I intend writing about this island .
Fondest memory: <FONT COLOR=PURPLE>: : Travel is a great eye opener to life and how lucky or unlucky you are to be from where you are. Batam to me was a high light of my travel this year for many different reasons. I saw 2 worlds while here . one was the cheap resort style luxury that people from non third world countries get for a pittance due to exchange rates and 2 was parts of the island that a just pure third world . poor living conditions and no electricity ect.. I'm in no way trying to put these people down just pointing out the unfair world which we live in.
