My girlfriend and I are thinking of going to either Bintan or Batam Indonesia tomorrow for my birthday... we like seedy stuff... third world like places to explore and, since we only have the day and I have been in Singapore for awhile and not been to either yet, I thought I'd like to check one of them out. We are looking for opinions as to which one we should spend a day at. Can anyone give us opinions/advice?

Well, the only personal experience I have is the taxi ride I took across Batam from the ferry station to the airport... Looked seedy but not really explorable. If Lonely Planet is to be believed, Bintan is *much better*
