Headed for Batam

cairns.com.au
I'm headed for a short getaway in Batam with some friends. Among other things, we're going cable-skiing!

Excitement aside, there have been so many horror stories of touristy water sports. One true encounter I recently heard of: a group of people surrounded the tourists after their jet-skiing session, and demanded compensation in amounts ranging from S$500 to S$1000+ for what were supposedly 'scratches on the equipment'. Afraid to get into trouble, the tourists had no choice but to pay up.

I hope this holiday won't be marred by such experiences. Keeping my fingers crossed!
