health insurance for Batam citizen  (4 Answers)

Hi! Could you help me? My friend has been working as a lecturer at the university located in Batam. She said that the price of the health insurance is 500.000 Rp per month. Her salary is 3.000.000 Rp. It means her salary is cut by 500.000 Rp every month. Is it truth? Why is the health insurance so expensive in Indonesia?
Thank you!

the prices in Batam  (4 Answers)

Hi! I am from a European country. My friend now lives in Palembang (South Sumatra). We plan to live in Batam for a few month. My friend got information about prices in Batam. I was shocked. I think that my friend got wrong information. Could you tell me, is it true?
He found a dorm for us. There is one room for us and a bath and a kitchen for a few rooms. The price is 2.000.000 rupiah for the room + 500.000 rupiah for security + electricity. The total price is around 3.000.000 rupiah for the room per month! The dorm is located in Plamo Garden, Block B (south of batam Centre Area). Could you tell me, is it normal price for Batam?
We will visit almost every day Sekolah Tinggi Teknik Ibnu Sina which is located in Nagoya Area. We will use city transport (bus). He told that one ticket costs 10.000 rupiah. We have to use two buses to come from Plamo Garden to STT Ibnu Sina. One person will spend 40.000 rupiah per day. So, one person will pay 1.000.000 rupiah per month for transportation. Is it true that we have to use two buses? Is it true that the price of one ticket in the bus is 10.000 rupiah? Could you tell me the shortest and cheapest way?
He said that he has to get Batam citizenship card (identity card). The price of the card is 1.000.000 rupiah. Why so expensive? I could get the card for free in my country.
Thank you!

What to do in 2 weeks to/from Singapore  (3 Answers)

Hi everyone

My girlfriend and will be flying via Singapore to Australia in mid-Jan and would like to spend 2 weeks visiting somewhere in Indonesia/Riau province. We'll need to get back to Singapore at the end of the 2 weeks.

Where would you recommend we go? I know AirAsia have some cheap flights and we don't mind getting on a plane to say Bali for example.

Our budget is limited - it will be the start of a 6 month trip through Australia, New Zealand and Africa - so I'm looking for backpacker suggestions not 5 star ideas.

Look forward to hearing what you guys think is best.
