My World Tuesday - Ferry Terminal - Trip to Batam, Indonesia

As mentioned during last week, My World Tuesday, I was going on a short trip. The answer for the question posted last week, was Batam, Indonesia. I went Island Hopping during the weekend.

Hop over to Batam Island in Indonesia. Batam is very near Singapore. It was just only about 45 mintures ferry ride from Singapore to Batam.



The queue to board the ferry that I was in during the weekend, was indeed long. But it took very fast to get all the people onto the ferry. Very fast and comfortable ferry ride.
There are so many different companies operating the different types of ferries to Batam. I will talked more about Batam in my travel blog. So if you are interested in my travel story abroad, please hop over to my travel blog.

That seems like to be an interesting destination. Good services are available. Hope I will be able to take it some day.

How neat is that, in 45 minutes, not only are you in another island, you're also in another country.

Perhaps I should consider a hop over to Batam too. What are the 'delights' there? And is a day enough??

Keats, a day is enough but if you like sea sports and relax in the hotel, you may consider staying one night. Pop over to my travel blog to look at the place which I am posting. You might like to book the day tour first rather than taking a taxi to get around the island cause taxi dont goes by the meter and it is not cheap. The day tour is around S$15 to S$20 including of one lunch. There's many travel agents at Harbour Front you might like to enquire from them.
