Cab fare...

Hi, I'm going to have a holiday at Batam next month. My hotel is Goodway hotel, nearby Nagoya hills shopping mall. May I know around how much should i bargain for the cab from Habour bay ferry terminal to Golden prawn 933? Around how much is the cab fare? And the cab fare to Nagoya Hills shopping mall? I couldn't find out the estimated cab fare online.. Need advise, cos I don't want to be cheated... Any clue about the cab fare?

Marmantha and Andy,

First of all thanks Andy for the info. But I need to correct something. I am pretty sure what Andy meant is the distance between Nagoya Hill and Harris BATAM CENTER. So don't get it mixed up okay. I am not sure how far is Harris Waterfront is from Nagoya Hill but it's gonna be around 45 mins ride and I am quite sure going meter would cost you more in this case.

RainyDay,

Yihanz estimates are not wrong but I doubt you can get that price from terminal taxi. I would think you need to pay Rp 70,000 for that trip from terminal to Mercure hotel.

From Mercure to NAgoya Hill, I think you need to pay more like Rp 30,000-40,000 for being tourists =)

Hi Chandrana ,

would like to check what is the cab fare from

1.Holiday Inn to Nagoya Hill

2.Nagoya Hill to Rezecki Seafood

3.Rezecki Seafood back to Holiday Inn.

If I ask the cab driver to wait 1.5-2hrs for our dinner, any sucharge?

I'm trying to decide whether is worth to change hotel from Holiday Inn to more central area ie Batam centre since Holiday Inn seems to be far away from the shopping/spa/seafood area.

Any chance that there is good seafood place near Holiday Inn?

Thanks in advance!

Regards
