    I'm now going to Vietnamese Refugee Center

    There is a lot to see in this area. Best to travel there by car and if possible, avoid going on Sundays when the Batam crowds descend on the place and bad driving can be spectacular.

    Tara, Buddha Goddess of learning and knowledge, is shown white in color. Indeed knowledge and learning should not be hidden, but be open and available to all.

    These are the very distinctive Stilt Houses which line the beach areas around the island.

    An inexpensive form of housing and what an idyllic location - not too hard to take at all.
