Description:

Make your own way (unless hotel pickup option is selected) to Singapore Harbourfront Centre ferry terminal for your high-speed public ferry to the Indonesian town of Batam. Relax in cool air-conditioned comfort during the 1-hour journey across the Singapore/Indonesia border.

Upon clearing immigration in Batam, your driver will wait at the ferry terminal arrival hall (with a Viator signboard) to pick you up and set off on an express trip around Batam, the largest city in the Riau Islands Province of Indonesia.

You will first stop by for a photostop of the Welcome to Batam monument and Batam Grand Mosque, which is a piece of modern architecture seemingly ahead of time in this laid-back developing Indonesian town.

After which, your driver will bring you to a one of the top licensed massage centres in Batam, where you can de-stress over a relaxing 2-hour (120-min) traditional Indonesian massage. Complimentary refreshments before and after massage are provided for your convenience.

Duly refreshed, you will then tuck in to a 5-course traditional Indonesian feast at a traditional Indonesian  kampung (wooden house). This feast includes grilled fish, signature fried chicken, belacan kangkong vegetables, banana leaf wrapped rice, fruit dessert, as well as traditional Indonesian favourites such as salad in peanut sauce and fried corn/tempeh/tofu.

You will also get to make a quick stop at a local bakery to sample famous Indonesian layer cakes, also affectionately known to the locals as Kueh Lapis. This fascinating Kueh Lapis is not difficult to make, but it requires time and a lot of patience. The bakers hover next to the oven for a couple of hours grilling each layer of batter. Kueh Lapis is typically served in small, thin, rich and fragrant slices.

After 4-5 hours in Batam, your driver will bring you back to the ferry terminal for your high-speed public ferry back to Singapore. You will arrive back in Singapore Harbourfront Centre ferry terminal where your trip ends.

Please note: traditional Indonesian massage may not be suitable for children below 12 years of age. As such, children below 12 years of age will be served a cup of beverage while waiting beside their parents/guardian.

We had a small problem with the Indonesian officials before catching the ferry, but eventually we got onto the ferry. As for the tour itself it was brief, due to our time constraints. The guide was very helpful and showed us as much as possible in the time available. The 2 hour massage was to die for , excellent. The lunch was ok as we are fussy eaters but was well presented. Overall we had a great day out.
