The graveyard of Vietnam war's refugee

at Kampung (village) Vietnam, the area where the Vietnam war's refugee were located by local government as refugee camp many years ago in Batam island, Indonesia . There is lot of painful story about them. After across the sea by overloaded small ship and got bad weather in the middle of the ocean finally they were landed in Batam island. Hoping to got new great life because they were avoided the war at their own country but many of them suffered not only physically but also mentally. One of the most horrible story was Tinh Nhan, one of Vietnamese girl who commited suicide after got raped by other Vietnam war's refugee. After her death some of Vietnam war's refugee decided to respect her with build a monument at the place where her death body was founded with a big help from my senior high school band mate circa 1999-2002 in Semarang, Hilman Adhi Setyawan who are the sea police officer now in Batam while don't know what to do with me & my family vacation after attending my cousins ( @taufik_rachman 's sister) wedding in Batam --- --- --- . And found this is the best destination I've visited during our Batam trip. Too bad we went there at noon so it's too late to explore it all. We only visited until jembatan (bridge) 5 and there is still one more jembatan we didn't visit because it was almost late afternoon and my parent still want to bought some souvenir in town. Oh should back here alone and this is very recomended to visit. Great traditional seafood reastaurant along the road , beautiful island view, amazing Vietnam war refugee museum --- , oh unforgetable Barelang Batam
