Hi guys,

It's my first business trip to Batam. Heard quite alot of bad things like custom and police officers extorting $$$ from you if you are from Singaopore and is new to there. Care to shred some light and advice. Thanks. No offense to the ppl there. ;) I just worried about my safety. :)

I'm a expat here in Batam, and I find it Ok and safe, if you are not doing anything bad then you should be ok...been here for 10 yrs...
Don't get paranoid from those nasty things you hear. :thumbsup:
