This is the ferry terminal where you can hop onto a ferry to Batam. I was headed to Nongsa Beach Resort and there was a direct ferry to the resort. I was a little early and there's a Killiney Coffee cafe there, where you can have some coffee and food. I then proceeded to clear immigration and waited in the... More

The conditions of the ferry terminal in terms of facilities and hygiene improved since my last review in 2013. I used this ferry terminal in 2014 (two times) and once in June 2015. Am pleased with the improvements. When you take a cab to TMFT, do ask if the cab driver can pick you up again when you return using... More

Nice and easy way to go across to Batam from Singapore. It has got few eatery which sells local pratas and local food. It takes about 35mins to go across. Big open carparks in front of ferry terminal make it easy to just drive there for few nights parking. Clean and plenty of seats to seat around and wait for... More

If you consider the terminal alone as a ferry point -- its actually not bad. Fairly modern, many conveniences and eats before heading out to neighbouring islands. Ticket processing was first rate and even baggage handling had an airport feel to it. Very efficient issue of checked baggage tags and tickets. They even had a small Yah-kun-like canteen just before... More

Travelling to Batam The easiest way to travel to Batam is with Batamfast Ferries from Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal Nongsapura, Batam. Only 35 min.. So if you are visiting friends, resorts or business on the eastern side of Batam, this is the way to travel. Ferries every 2nd hour and you have to be at Ticket Office 30 min before... More

No need to come too early to this terminal before departure time because there are only 2 restaurants available in here with some shops and ferry agencies. Unless you just spend your time using the wifi facility. Passport checking for arrival services should've improved better. Taxi service: long queue and it takes some time to wait for one. Use taxi...

Is this really an attraction of itself!? Ultimately it is just a ferry terminal, but can be very difficult to get a taxi here if you arrive at night. THere are infrequent buses but they are usually crowded and awkward if you have luggage. As for the terminal itself, I've never had any problems and always found it to be... More

Coming out of the terminal, looking for a cab is a nightmare... Only limousine taxi service available.
