Singaporean tourists flock department stores in Batam

Hundreds of Singaporean tourists flocked some department stores in industrialized island of Batam like Mega Mall Batam Center (MMBC) and Nagoya Hill on Saturday and Sunday or on the first and second days of Idul Fitri festivity.

"Many department stores in Batam have offered discounts on this holiday season. We are interested in buying some discounted items," said a Singaporean traveler, Michele Lie, here Sunday.

Lie said she intentionally came to Batam for buying Indonesia-made clothing which was not sold in Singapore.

Besides shopping in department stores, Singaporean holidaymakers also jammed bread and donut kiosks.

Singaporean tourist Pieter Goh said bread and donut prices in Indonesia were far cheaper than those in Singapore.
