Smile along with Buddha at Maha Vihara Duta Maitreya Temple, one of the largest Buddhist temples in Southeast Asia. The spacious structure is dedicated to Maitreya, the laughing Buddha. Admire the many statues inside, showing the charming Buddha smiling, having tea, and communicating with various animals. Twelve statues outside represent the animals of the Chinese zodiac, which is based on year--you can find your zodiac animal and compare characteristics. Enjoy the scenic view from the balcony, or take some memorable photos at this tranquil place. Try the diverse and delicious meals in the temple's vegetarian restaurant.

  • This place got school from elementary till college now, if you are one of those vegetarian guy this place is suitable for you. Ini here they got place for people to pray and a vegetarian restaurant too. A cozy place to chill sometimes. And every year they always have events there, whether it is bazaar or culture dance.

Where to stay in Batam

Batam offers accommodations ranging from small hotels and apartments to large beach resorts, but without much in the budget department. By far the most popular spot to stay is Nagoya in the center of Batam city, on the north coast of the island. There you'll find plenty of activity, including a range of bars and restaurants, as well as close proximity to the beach. For something a bit quieter, try a spot close to the beach in Nongsa, on the island's east coast.
