Manyana Dreaming

The life and travels of the Kemp Family

One Day in Batam 

We left Singapore for a day trip to Batam which is about a 45 minute boat trip across to Indonesia.

The mission was to see the final results of a golf course that Darby was building , 25 years ago . We could not get over the contrast between these two countries ( Singapore and Batam ) even though they are so close together . 

Above is more of the outstanding architecture that can be viewed as you leave Singapore by boat , but I must say we were all disappointed with the island of Batam . The golf course had never achieved its expectation , the towns and people were struggling to make a living and rubbish was everywhere . 

A reality check for us , we have it all . How lucky are we !!!


Lunch shared with our taxi driver in Batam . Chili Pepper Crab , Fried Fish , Butter Prawns , mixed vegetables for me .
