    Where to Go after Dark in Batam Island

    Nagoya is the nightlife entertainment district in Batam. There are several things to do; you can start your evening at the outdoor food hall called Santai (meaning 'relaxing' in Indonesian) then simply set off to one of many karaoke bars near Lucky Plaza. If you are a real sports buff, there are several Irish pubs broadcasting live football matches or Formula One on a big screen.

    You may try the eclectic nightclubs before heading back for a good night's sleep. An added bonus for being a duty zone, you can get Heineken and other imported beers for nearly the same price as Bintang. And although you might find the nightlife scene in Batam different from what you are used to back home, it is worth experiencing.

Karaoke

There are literally hundreds of karaoke bars located in almost every direction of Nagoya. It is very popular with Chinese and Singaporean, so most of the songs are in Chinese with some well-known English songs. Beside a large karaoke hall, many of them also provide private rooms for a group of three-to-eight people or more, an option to avoid bad singers in the open lounge who seem to think they are competing on Pop Idol. Below is the list to sample:

Merlion Hotel
Location: Sriwijaya Road, Nagoya

Kompleks Cipta Utam
Location: Near Center Point shopping centre, Nagoya

Permata Indah
Location: Windsor Central, Nagoya

Barong Karaoke
Location: Puri Garden Hotel
