Batam Indonesia - Buildings

We got a chance to look around some of the buildings and houses during our walk to the layer cakes/kueh lapis factory that was situated in the residential area. Our bus could not go into the residential area, so we need to walk towards the residential area.

Some very beautiful buildings where the shops are located on the ground floor and residential on the upper floors but the whole area looked so deserted with some shops not occupied.

Look at the satellite dish on top of the building. Very common to find them on the island.

A house in the area undergoing renovation/rebuilting.

According to the guide, one such unit costs around S$30,000. It is so cheap but only available to the locals and not to foreigners. Such landed houses in Singapore cost more than a million dollars.
