First time to batam

Hi , I will be going for a short getaway to batam .

It's my first time there .

So I kinda nervous as some things I don't understand .

I also scared of getting lost.

In which some says that I can purchase a two way ticket in which all taxes included . But some said I still need to pay fuel charges when I'm returning to Singapore .

I be staying at GGI hotel as it was a gift from my sister but surprise me some said its dirty & such . Kinda nervous . It also stated that it is few minutes away to Harbour bay terminal .

Do anyone know how much does it cost for a taxi fare to nagoya hill shopping mall ?

& are smokers allowed to bring back to Singapore cigs ? Few of friends said possible but some said cant . Kinda curious .

Is there any tips too that can help maybe .

Thanks .
