Nagoya Travel Guide
Situated on the Indonesian island of Batam, Nagoya is the island’s main entertainment center, packed to bursting with bars, restaurants, attractions and amusements.
Although not blessed with the beautiful beaches, cool sea and lush forests which fringe many towns and villages on Palau Batam, Nagoya is a good place for those who want to indulge in simple pleasures such as shopping, dining and watching a movie at the cinema.
There is plenty of accommodation in Nagoya, and it is easy to spend several days here. However, many visitors find the allure of the ocean far too strong and merely pause here briefly before heading to the coast. The town is famous for its seafood, and this is a particularly good place to eat as there are numerous restaurants and cheap food stalls to choose from, serving a range of culinary delights.
Getting There & Away
There is an international airport situated on the island of Batam, with regular buses and taxis taking around 20 minutes to reach Nagoya from the airport. There are also ferries to Batam’s port from surrounding islands as well as international destinations such as Singapore and Malaysia.
