Nearly six months back I wrote on Google Maps as a Local Guide, contributor, “Alun Alun is a popular public and official outdoor gathering place in Batam Center beside the Mayor Office / Kantor Walikota Batam, Pemerintah Kota Batam building.”

I added, “It's a big, wide open field with garden and limited public playground. Also, neighboring with Masjid Raya, BP Batam which is previously known as, Otorita, building.

And, besides Harris Hotel, Sea Port International Ferry Terminal Batam Center, and Mega Mall.”

Even, near to Public Service Mall that known Gedung Sumatra, as well.

Also, I mentioned that “For morning jogging and a family walk at this park, Alun Alun that you can choose to enjoy a nice time.”

Further, today I am going to write more about this attracting public space for the local residents and even for the tourists from other cities or countries.

By the way, Batam is one of the popular and most visited city and island of Indonesia.


However, if you enter Alun Alun area from just opposite of Batam Center Ferry Terminal then you will see this at your right-hand side.

Opportunities in Barelang: More committing Openings for Investors

Today I am talking totally about a different topic Opportunities in Barelang Area: More committing Openings for Investors, from my personal view as I am living in Batam for many years.  I found it seems more opportunities are beside industrial parks to utilize local Manpower. Rural and Urban Development Opportunity Natural and Human Resource in  Batam – Rempang – Galang Batam and total Barelang area is a holiday resort for the local and travelers from different countries.
