Harris hotel batam to..


Am planning a 2D1N trip with my boyfriend, and would like advice on an itinerary.

Arriving at Batam on Saturday afternoon and Leaving Sunday night, staying at Harris Hotel Batam Center, arriving at Batam Center Ferry terminal.

1. Do I need to take a taxi? Or can we just walk? We probably only have 1 bag each.

I love seafood! So that is a must have on both nights, and would like kueh lapis to bring home.

2. How much and how long would it take by taxi to get from Harris Hotel to

- Batu Besar (Rezeki Seafood!)

- Citra Utama

- Citra Rasa ?

- Nagoya Hill Shopping center (The Spa Secret!) ?

I have considered leaving by Harbour Bay Terminal instead of Batam Center after a seafood dinner.

Is this wise, and any seafood recommendations near Harbour Bay or Batam Center?

Thank you very much!

Hi guys!

Thanks a lot for the responses! I am taking BatamFast ferry, so the terminals I can take from are Batam Center, Sekupang, Waterfront & Nongsapura only? No Harbour Bay!

I will be at Spa Secret on return day. Which would be the closest ferry terminal, and respective good seafood place we can go to before leaving Batam? Thanks again!!

Eh? ... I thought Batamfast (and Prima ferry) do Harbor Bay. It was so last month when I checked... you may want to call them up again... unless it's some sort of promotion package...

Hi. Batamfast now go to harbour bay. But looks like the schedules are limited to only 4 times a day. You definitely need to do prebookings

I have bought tickets to and from Batam Centre because I called the ferry and customer service said I could come back via any harbour.

Has anyone does this before?

If I'm not wrong, your return ticket should be an open one for you to book with their respective agency at the batam terminals. That's usual. You just have to book your return ticket by getting to Harbour bay earlier 1hr++. Bear in mind that sometimes the return trips may be fully booked, so you may want to call ahead of time after you reach Batam to book your timing. I don't have the number. (The resort I stayed at previously helped me call and book the timing.) You could check with Batamfast if you wish.
