In many cases, travellers from all over the world who want to visit Indonesia often think of Bali or Jakarta as their first option. However, this country has a lot more to offer than just these two beautiful places, and the Indonesia-Malaysia-Singapore Growth Triangle’s production leg Batam Island is one of them.
The must-not-miss spots
This largest city in the Riau Islands Province of Indonesia boasts of a smattering of great activities – for the body, the mind, and the soul. Of course, there are some places you should not miss, like the Buddhist Temple Maha Vihara Duta Maitreya, the largest of all temples in Southeast Asia, or the Waterfront City, Melur Beach, or Batam Island. However, there are plenty of other amazing things you can do here.
For relaxation and stress relief
After all of the water or land activities and sports you have done, the next thing you would definitely want to do is to relax your tired muscles. WOW Getaways says one of the best ways to do this is to head to one of the best spas in Batam, where not only can you have all your muscle knots gotten rid of, but also simply relax and have your stresses melt away.
Keep in mind though that you have a multitude of options in terms of massage and spa types, but since you are in Indonesia, you definitely should go for the traditional ones, like the Balinese massage or spa.
For filling up your belly
With Batam being as close as to the water as possible, you should no longer wonder why fresh and delicious, yet very affordable seafood delights are one of its primary attractions. The island, lined with restaurants and other small food establishments, is a must-head-to area in Indonesia when you want to satisfy your hunger for almost any kind of seafood.
There are many other amazing sights to see, activities to do, and places to visit in this beautiful Indonesian island. So for next adventure, make sure you consider this as one of your next options.
