Ahoy Batam Indonesia Trip !

Written by sylistic On April - 5 - 2011 Under BATAM 6 Comments Tags:, ,

Ahoy Batam ! Needless to say , we’re on a ferry out and away to Batam – just 35 minutes away from Singapore . This time round , we are pleased to have onboard the official restaurants – NEWTOWN restaurant and Grand Duck restaurant located on the island , Batam who had generously sponsored our ferry , food ( duh ! ) and the boss of the 2 restaurants ( Mr Loo ) for spending his time out to drive us around for a 2 days 1 night food trip !

Armed with our boarding pass that looks like any boarding pass for your plane ( only that it is in hard card format ) , we’re finally all set to get onto the ferry and off we set off to Batam !!!!!!!!!!!

Getting to Batam is so much more convenient and faster than what i thought with frequent hourly ferry shuttle services from Singapore and Batam – Harbour Bay Ferry Terminal . Wavemaster is a full fleet ferry that operates to and fro from Harbour Bay Batam – a 1 floor ferry so forget about admiring the scenery from the top .

Pretty comfy with the seats ( so much better than budget airlines ) but not recline-able , it boasts an airline configuration of 3 by 3 by 3 and 4 toilets at the back ( but quite budget kind ) .

Did i mention it’s my 1st ferry out to the sea despite being a travel blogger ? A 35 mins ferry ride is beautiful and speedy with WaveMaster at only SGD 48 all inclusive for a return trip . Shuttle services are also provided free of charge to Kepri Mall – where GRAND DUCK Restaurant is located at so you can hop onto one to have lunch when you reach Batam ! Convenient isn’t it ? :)

Booking to Batam Indonesia is easy with purchasing your tickets at Harbourfront Centre , pass through the immigration and off you hop onto the ferry ! We heard that WaveMaster is the only ferry that operates at the terminal so remember to purchase the right tickets for the right port !

    Looks like an interesting place to visit, enjoy and relax. Surely everyone will be fascinated by the beauty and greatness of the place. I’ve been there once but planning to schedule a trip probably early next year with some friends.
