HISTORY


Vietnam Camp on Galang Island



Galang Island is located in Batam City which used to be a refugee camp for Vietnamese citizens. Around 1980, hundreds of thousands of southern Vietnamese fled to other countries after the civil war there.

Vietnamese people boarded boats and for some time bobbed in the South China Sea with no clear destination.

Some of these South Vietnamese managed to reach Indonesia, precisely at Galang Island and Tanjung Pinang. From here, the story of Galang Island as a refugee camp for Vietnamese began.

From Barracks to Houses of Worship


Vietnamese Camp, which was built in the 70s, stands on an area of approximately 80 hectares. In this location there are not only refugee barracks, but there are also many other supporting facilities such as hospitals, houses of worship, and cemeteries.

One that is often visited by tourists besides the museum is the temple or pagoda - a holy place for Buddhists - Quan Am Tu.
