Reviewed February 27, 2017

Batam Island has several ferry terminals, but this one is unique because it is actually located on the riverbank, not the shoreline. The sensation entering the river upon arrival or entering the open sea from the river upon departing, are somewhat different from the terminal in the shorelines. To make it more surreal is the riverbank in this area consist of dense trees making you feel that you are entering the unknown territory. When you come from the Batam city direction, you will pass the bridge and see the terminal with ferries sailing beneath you. This specific terminal is the favorite terminal that people choose if they wanted to go to Changi intl. airport from Batam, or vice-versa.

Before boarding or upon arrival, you can enjoy a few restaurant available in the terminal with reasonable price with many choices of food, from international to local cuisine. In fact, a lot of people who stay in the hotel nearby Nongsa, go to eat in these restaurants, because there are actually the closest restaurants from Nongsa where hotels are located. Just don’t buy anything on the convenient store there, because the price way more expensive compare to the one outside the terminal.
