Hi, I am planning to Visit Bali on my travels in Southeast Asia. May I know if Bali has Visa on Arrival for Indian tourists?
Since 2015, it has been Visa Free for Indian tourists visiting Bali. It is limited to only entry and exit via Denpasar airport in Bali.
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.
