I went through the Batam FAQ on your web, it is very helpful.
We plan to move to Indonesia soon. My husband will work near Pekanbaru, and the family in Batam. Flights are frequent and cheap, and there is international highschool there.
However I still have a doubts about how life in Batam could be for a Mum and a teenager girl. Most information of life in Batam stated that asian girls are happy to give company to westerns men. Is this aspect so strong that could affect us? the proportion of expat full families is big enough to live happily?
Sorry about that question.... I hope you or someone can give me a helpfull opinion.
