Vihara budha maitreya sei panas, 6m from hotel

Barelang bridge, 40m from hotel

Harbourbay seafood, 15-20m from hotel

the only best place you can go for food is a 5 minutes walk from the hotel . the name of the place is called "MyMart Foodcourt" .

Mega Mall is about 10 minutes walk from your hotel . and trust me , that's the only place you would want to visit .

places such as golden beach are a rip off . i only knew yesterday that they charge very high .

barelang bridge is too far and if you are a lover of scenery then it's fine to go there , other than that there's nothing there .

vihara maitreya , take a cab which will cost you less than Rp30.000 .

places... well they all said it. and i agree golden beach area is a rip-off, maybe not for singaporeans since your dollar is so strong!

as for food... there are tons but harder to direct you there. But ask around for "Sampan" and "Kedai kopi ABC". Else you can try Megamal or the foodcourt opposite megamal.
