staycation in batam

Batam is a favorite travel destination, easily accessible even from Singapore. Water-based activities such as swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, canoeing, parasailing, and windsurfing are a given since it’s an island, but it also plays host to the Sea Forest Adventure, a floating waterpark that doubles as a jungle gym. If you don’t mind a bit of a trek, climb the thousand or so steps of Taman Wisata Habibie 1000 Tangga to enjoy fantastic views of the rich foliage. Maha Vihara Duta Maitreya Buddhist temple, which serves as the home of the Laughing Buddha, is also worth a visit there. If, however, you just want to kick back and relax, there are a number of hotels in the area which will allow you to do just that. Take your pick from the top staycation spots in Batam, Indonesia.
