| I am currently working in Singapore and want to do a weekend trip out and I heard about Batam and Bintan Islands. Which one is better for a weekend trip?|
Both these islands are well known to be touristy and not exactly your ideal island holiday. But in a pinch and you want to choose, then Bintan Island is the better choice with nicer beaches though not exactly paradise. Batam Island though is apparently cheaper but could be overcrowded.
