Sorry if some of this has been asked before and maybe repeating questions. I did look at the forum but didn't find definitive answers.
The pregnant wife and I are staying at Tempat Senang for 4 days over CNY. We would like to know the following:
1) We're not expecting to do very much on Batam given my wife's condition but just in case we do head around the island do we really need to bring IDR for taxis/purchasing things outside the hotel?
2) We would like to experience food outsite the hotel so are there any eating places near us? We don't want to travel big distances but although the food in the hotel is meant to be nice, I would like to eat more locally/cheaply. Shame we can't have any seafood though (not recommended for pregancy), going by some of the posts we're missing out!
3) We're both on British passports so we need the VOA. Does this have to be paid in USD or can we use SGD?
Thanks for your help!
