There are two well known Taxi operators in Batam.

Silver Cab: +62 778-46-1000: first taxi service in Batam which runs with meters. It is one of the best alternatives to get around Batam particularly if you don’t know how to bargain for a cab. The fee is very reasonable, and cheaper to those non-metered taxis and of course runs with air conditioning.

Bluebird: +62 778-42-1234: Blue Bird taxis are available to serve the people of Batam city since January 30, 2013.

Alternatively one can also hire Private car in Batam for free and easy Travellers, the price is around S$80 for 8 to 10 hours.

You can try car rental also if you know how to use GPS.

There is also bus services in Batam where the price is around 50 cents per trip. If you know your way, it is not a bad idea but buses have no air conditioning, because Batam is relatively small. Recently, Batam’s local government started a bus service project known as the “Bus Pilot Project”. The blue colour bus travels from Batam Center to Batu Aji for Rp. 4.000, and Batam Center to Sekupang for Rp. 4.000. You just need to pay money before get off.

Most of the hotels run shuttle buses during the day to the ferry ports and to the main shopping malls. But there are none that runs shuttles to the airport. You can hop on a free shuttle bus (yellow in colour) from Megamall Batam Center to the major hotels in Nagoya or Jodoh.

Batam is also well-known with lots of fraudster, so whoever travel to Batam need to be extra careful with their money, and don’t believe too much in the local. Because Indonesian law is not as transparent as Singapore.

Here’s wishing everyone happy traveling to Batam.

在Bengkong地区,您可以找到金景酒店酒店附近的许多活动和景点。 Taman Mini Indonesia Indah就像雅加达的一个微型公园,拥有微型传统房屋。

对于喜欢运动和喜欢游戏的人来说,可以尝试卡丁车,ATV竞技场和Paint Ball。除了上述活动外,还有其他一些轻松的活动,如在金厂直销店购物中心购物,或在美食广场享用饮品或餐点,或在金虾海鲜餐厅享用海鲜。对于卡拉OK场所:如果全家打算在巴淡岛享受价格实惠的卡拉OK,那么巴淡岛城市广场购物中心就有一家叫做The Monic Family Karaoke,只需几美元,就可以享受两小时的歌唱。按摩地点:寻找经济按摩地点的按摩爱好者可以尝试运动按摩中心,价格合理。对于海鲜:在巴淡岛吃海鲜的价格与新加坡小贩中心差不多。人们可以尝试Rezeki海鲜餐厅,因为它比其他人便宜,但远离旅游景点。用餐:在名古屋吃饭与新加坡小贩中心价格差不多。除非你前往瑟古邦或Batu Aji。


交通:巴淡岛有两家著名的出租车运营商。银色驾驶室:+62 778-46-1000:巴淡岛的第一个出租车服务,以表为单位。如果您不知道如何和出租车讨价还价,这是绕过巴淡岛的最佳选择之一。费用非常合理,对于那些非计程的出租车来说更便宜,当然还有空调。自2013年1月30日起,蓝鸟出租车可供巴淡岛市民服务,蓝鸟:+62 778-42-1234。另外,您也可以在巴淡岛租用私家车出行,价格约为S $ 80, 8到10个小时。如果您知道如何使用GPS,也可以尝试租车。巴淡岛也有巴士服务,每次旅行的价格约为50美分。如果你知道自己的行程,这也不是一个坏主意,但公共汽车没有空调,因为巴淡岛相对较小。蓝色巴士从巴淡岛中心前往巴图阿吉,为Rp4,000,巴淡岛中心到瑟古邦为Rp4.000。你只需要在下车前付钱。最近,巴淡岛当地政府启动了一项名为“公交试点项目”的公交服务项目。穿梭巴士白天可以运送乘客前往大多数酒店,渡轮码头和主要购物商场。但是没有一个可以运送到机场的班车。您可以乘坐免费穿梭巴士(黄色)从Megamall 巴丹岛中央到名古屋或Jodoh的主要酒店.

巴淡岛也有众所周知的欺诈者,所以无论谁前往巴淡岛需要特别小心钱,并且不要相信当地的人,他们会为了金钱而操你并杀了你,印尼法律并不像 透明如新加坡。
