Travel Indonesia Haiku - Batam surprise


Batam, fly or drive
great heroes to welcome

I felt strange when all the names of roads and even the airport were named after heroes of the Malacca Empire. Roads are named after Hang Tuah, Hang Jebat, Hang Lekir while the international airport after Hang Nadim. Looks like they get greater prominence in Indonesia.
