Hang Nadim Batam 

Here I am bringing you to the airport, follow me.

Main Entrance Gate Hang Nadim International Airport Batam 

You will see this big gate once you take your turn to the Airport from the main road.

Turn right, if you are coming by Jalan Sudirman, let say from Nagoya or Sekupang, even from Batam center, while crossing the four road junction Simpang Dam then Legenda area.

And, take the turn to left if you are from Nongsa or Punggur by Batu Besar. However, go straight while you are coming out by the road from Botania area, or from Nongsa by the circle beside the State High School.

If you want to walk and take camera shots of both side, you can do that. More or less, a 15 minutes walking distance may take longer in case, you walk slowly. However, green bushes and bird’s creeping will companion you as you walk thru this silent road.

I walked on this road a few times, I felt safe and silent.

By the way, you are going to get the road direction as you see the green road signboard at your left. And, the flying Falcon statue from far.

As you can see, at the time I took this picture, there is footpath for the pedestrian but you can walk as I did. You can see the sign on grass as people walk.

By going straight you will reach the circle junction.

To reach the airport building, take your left if you are going by any vehicle. Otherwise, straight in case, you are walking. However, to the right, way to a playground and other facilities.

A wide ground area is allocated for car parking to facilitate taxi, motorbike and for the people who come to receive or send passengers. Therefore, many cars and motorbikes need enough space and for a long time, sometimes.

Initially, Hang Nadim International was built and developed to handle in case of heavy traffic and for emergency purposes, as I found, mentioned in both websites, BP Batam and Wikipedia.

Literally, this is one of the busiest airports in Indonesia.

Further, surely you want to know about the name that after this airport. Hang Nadim. Here is in a few words, I am explaining. You can find more even on Wikipedia as Laksamana Hang Nadim.

Literally, the history began with fall of Malacca to the Portuguese in 1511, and Laksamana Hang Nadim was a warrior of the Johor-Riau during the Portuguese occupation.

He became famous by proving his leadership and heroism by defeating the then occupier Portuguese when they attacked Bintan and Kopak.

This is a history of long Malacca Strait, Johor-Riau Empire based in Johore, the Riau Islands, Pahang and all those parts of the old Malacca Sultanate. And, the warrior Hang Nadim was the son of warrior Hang Jebat. Also, he became the foster son of legendary Malacca warrior Hang Tuah.

As described in Wikipedia,

When Laksamana Khoja Hassan died, Hang Nadim was appointed as the new Laksamana.

His gallantry was highly esteemed by the Malays and the repeated attacks he mounted on the Portuguese weakened their fighting spirit and badly damaged their trade in Malacca.

A Laksamana Class Corvette of the Royal Malaysian Navy has been named KD Hang Nadim in his honour.

Hang Nadim Airport in Batam, Indonesia is named after him.”

If you are looking for the history of this Riau islands and Malacca regarding the warriors, you can find in Wikipedia or other sources as well. Here I provide the link too.
