Batam is not only about sea and beach. It is indeed that Batam is rich with its marine tourism, but now,, more and more attractions are growing on the main island of Batam. One of the most famous tourism spot in Batam is Golden City Batam. If you take tour package in Batam, this tourist destination is always included on the itinerary. In the middle of 2016, there is one new attraction opens here. It is The Illusion Batam.
What is The Illusion Batam
The Illusion Batam is a studio and museum of trick art, 3D art, illusion art, and perspective room. All in one place.
It is the work and creativity of Batam local artists and has been opened since mid-2016 until now.
Here, we will found a studio with an upside down decoration in some rooms like living room, kitchen, and bathroom. These rooms will make you like you were on the upside down house. On the other side, there is a mirror illusion room and perspective room which can make you look bigger an smaller when you take the picture at the correct angel.
One room I personally like is the 30 degree room with Michael Jackson 45 degree move pose. In this room, we were look like can do the same with Michael Jackson without the ‘anti-gravity’ shoes.
Move to another room, there are the 3D illusion art painted on the wall with many themes.
Total of 28 studios and arts were here with its own uniqueness. There is also a guide to accompany you to ensure you are taking a great picture at the right angle for the perfect result.
The manager of The Illusion Batam claimed that the perspective room here is the only one available in Indonesia.
