The experience

Keep gazes set beyond the shoreline as the trip flings one past the island state’s cozy shores and into the heart of commercial convenience and touristic ease with a ferry ride onto the tread of Batam. Long cherished as a thriving hub for retreat from the qualms of landlocked wayfaring, the island proffers much to see and do (and even more to fork out for) in the way of shopping and mileage to cover.

  • Sample the flavour of locally crafted foods and delicacies, like the famed kuih lapis within Kue Lapis Home Made Shop where freshly baked Nyonya cakes are the order of the day - appetisingly striped and imbued with rich flavours. Also on the list is a visit to the Foodstuff Market where one can catch a bargain on dried goods like anchovies, prawn, and a variety of homemade fritters, among others.
  • After savouring the local palette, make a stop by one of the largest Buddhist temples in Southeast Asia, the Maha Vihara Duta Maitreya Buddhist Temple. Located close to the Batam Centre Ferry Terminal, the reflective domain comprises spacious chambers housing statues of Buddha as well as the Goddess of Mercy and Guan Gong idols. Further spaces within hold nifty corners of Buddhist crafts and items on sale while a jaunt deeper within the entrails brings one to the vegetarian restaurant operating within the compounds.
  • Escape landlocked travels and fasten seats on an evening-spanning cruise, taking guests to see the natural intricacies of mangrove-laden waters and island charm, as well as a sunset view sprinkled with visiting flickers of fireflies along the way back.
