Batam Island Shopping

Where to Shop in Batam Island

It is no secret that the layout and design of Batam seeks to imitate neighboring Singapore and that the island wishes to become the next international trading hub in Southeast Asia. The island takes on a decidedly cosmopolitan approach when it comes to the business of shopping. Fresh produce markets and unique handicrafts are not easily come across here. Instead, expect air-conditioned, contained malls selling international brands and the latest in technological commodities.

For shoppers, the real appeal of Batam lies predominantly in the fact that it is tax-free. As you might expect, the island is emerging as something of a shopping destination in Southeast Asia. With a total of five malls, visitors are spoilt when it comes to the business of discount designer shopping, and many tourists come over from Singapore just for this reason, so expect some serious consumer junkies to be flexing their cards.

Center Point

Popular with the Singaporean shopping brigade, probably due to the fact that it is built on a smaller scale making it easier to navigate around, Center Point still has the potential to keep shoppers entertained for the day. Featuring hair and beauty salons, a spa, grocery and department stores and world-class shopping, it is definitely worth checking out, especially if you prefer a more intimate shopping environment. This mall has the most extensive choice of technological goods.

DC Mall

The closure of the island's casinos in 2005 has seen many of the DC Malls units left vacant, leaving the place feeling a bit empty in comparison to its fellow shopping havens. Nonetheless, if you are looking for discounted prices on international brands such as Espirit and Abercrombie & Fitch, it might just be worth popping in for a look. Some of these pieces retail at less than US$10 per piece.

Lucky Plaza

Not quite as upmarket as its competitors, Lucky Plaza sells cheap phones and technological goods. Situated next to Center Point, shoppers can flit between the two (both renowned for their technological goods) and search for the cheapest prices. Lucky Plaza also features the Indonesian department store Matahari, which is home to an eclectic bunch of goods including home interiors and discount fashions.

Robinson Mall

The least plush of the islands shopping complexes, expect to be able to find goods at affordable prices and a diverse range of goods, from clothes to interiors to technology. This is the place that locals head to when in need of some new threads. The food court sells a good selection of dishes and is especially good for picking up some reasonably priced local fare.
