Batam: $57 per pax for 2D1N KTM Resort Stay with Breakfast + Ferry + City and Shopping Tour and More (Worth $128)
KTM Resort is a tranquil Batam holiday spot nestled in a secluded beachfront location facing the Singapore city skyline. It is situated 5 minutes drive from Sekupang International Ferry Terminal and about 25 minutes’ drive to its town, Nagoya. Its laidback and natural surroundings make it a convenient and relaxing hideaway for anybody who needs a short getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life or boisterous relatives.
Each beachfront villa is erected on stilts over the water, allowing its occupants to be as close to the sea as possible without actually being in it. The sandy beach nearby is also ideal for invigorating morning and evening walks. A special feature of KTM Resort is its salt water Jacuzzi, which draws clear salt water from 2 metres under the sea and is said to be therapeutic and contain healing properties.
While living the quiet beach life is a rare opportunity for most city slickers, the lure of Nagoya city and its bounty of shopping and good food will render any vacationer helpless. Hop on the 1-day guided shopping tour around Batam City that will cover popular shopping haunts, souvenir stops and a taste of culture and history. Stop first at Maha Vihara Duta Maitreya Temple, one of the largest in Southeast Asia, then make your way to shopping extravaganza at Polo Outlet, Batam Chocolate House, Indonesia Miniature Park and Golden Bay City.
Continue on the shopping tour with Bengkong Dry Market to pick up Indonesia spices at a fraction of costs in Singapore, as well as other snacks and kuehs. Health conscious travellers should also pick up bottles of already prepared bird’s nest at the Bird Nest Shop before tours adjourn at Golden Prawn 933 Seafood Restaurant for a seafood break.
Tuck into the scrumptious seafood lunch with freshly caught baby lobster and be amazed at the wonders of what the right amount of spices could do to marine creatures. Fill up empty bellies before making your way out into the streets for more shopping and sightseeing alike.
After taking a gander about the city’s shopping delights, partake in Indonesian culture with a stopover at the Kueh Lapis Factory for a sampling of buttery layered cakes before taking them home as souvenirs. Immerse yourselves into history and traditions at the Pondok Wisata Cultural Show, and layer clothing with handmade, intricately designed batik fabric at the Batik Factory Outlets.
