I recently went on a solo trip to the island of Batam in Indonesia. I had never been to the country before, so I was excited to explore it on my own. Here’s what my trip was like!

What is Batam?

Batam is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Indonesia. A small island located off the east coast of Sumatra, Batam is known for its beaches, seafood restaurants, and nightlife. The island has a population of approximately 1 million people and offers a wide range of attractions, including a vibrant nightlife scene, plenty of seafood restaurants, beautiful beaches, and interesting temples. While there are plenty of things to do on Batam, some visitors prefer to relax by browsing the boutiques or taking in the views from one of the beachside cafes.

The best time to visit Batam is during the dry season from November to April. During this time, the island is busy but not too crowded. The wet season (May to October) can be quite rainy and uncomfortable, making it difficult for tourists to explore all the attractions that Batam has to offer.

If you’re looking for a relaxing seaside escape with plenty to do, Batam is an excellent choice.

What to do in Batam

If you’re looking for a day trip from Jakarta, Batam is the perfect option. With plenty of shopping and dining options, as well as activities like parasailing and diving, it has something for everyone. Here are some of our favorite things to do in Batam:

-Visit the Dutch Colonial architecture at Tanjung Balai Botanical Gardens.
-Walk around the lively district of Kota Batam with its many restaurants, shops and pubs.
-Take a swim at one of the many beachside resorts on the island.
-Ride a bike or take a boat ride along the beautiful Batam Sea.
