Batam Day Trip. Recommended?

Hi, I've planned a trip to Singapore in the next couple of weeks. Never been to Indonesia, so I am wondering if anyone would recommend a day-trip to Batam. I'm not planning on staying over night.

I've read that shopping is a big attraction, but I'm more the type of person that likes the cultural side of things...

Would anyone recommend I go to Batam or should I stay in Singapore? Also planning to do a day trip to JB Malaysia.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Ozphil,,, Day Trip To Batam Should Be Nice,,, Shopping Is Great, Food Is Great,,, Take A Early Ferry From SIngapore To Batam N It Takes 45,Min,,, N Back To Singapore on A Late Ferry At 2100hrs,,,

Jb Is Also Fantastic, A Day Trip Should Be Nice,,, Shoping Is Also Good There,,

Did you end up going for a day trip to Batam? I'm considering doing it with my three daughters (10 & under). Any advice?
