it really depend on what you wan to do there.

If you just wan beach resort, go for Bintan cos their beach resort (Bintan Lagoon) is quite nice. But there are no shopping centre there.

If you wan to stay in resort, yet wan to do some shopping, then go batam cos they have a few shopping mall in the town.

Batam is relatively cheaper than Bintan.

When you go batam, never try anything cheaper than Turi Resort, otherwise, its just scrap...

For Bintan, its more backward city than Batam. From the ferry to your resort can take up to 75KM but luckily, most resort do provide free transportation.

My suggestion is, unless you have a big budget (300 per night), then go to Bintan Lagoon (75km). Otherwise, try the cheaper Turi resort in batam (cost less than 100).
