How to go to Batam from Singapore? We went there by ferry. Ferry departs from Singapore HarbourFront Ferry Terminal to Batam Ferry Terminal (Harbour Bay, Batam Centre, Sekupang, Waterfront, etc.). Ferry operators include Batam Fast and Sindo Ferry. We tried to buy the ferry tickets online on BatamFast.com but the transaction was not successful. An error occurred while processing the credit card. It was quite frustrated.
How to go to Batam from Singapore
Where to buy ferry tickets to Batam from Singapore? On the day of departure, we bought the ferry tickets directly at the sales office located in the HarbourFront Centre which connected to the VivoCity. If you are going there by MRT, take the North-East Line to HarbourFront Station (CC29) and then make your way to HarbourFront Centre Level 2, where you will find the Batam Fast Ferry Sales Office and the departure hall.
The staff at the counter was friendly and helpful. She told us that our hotel (Holiday Inn) was located near Waterfront Ferry Terminal and we should not go to Harbour Bay Terminal. As Batam Fast does not offer ferry to Waterfront City, she directed us to Sindo Ferry Sales Office, Level 3, to buy the ferry tickets to Waterfront Ferry Terminal. Luckily, we did not manage to buy it online. If not, we would have to take a 20-minute taxi drive to the hotel.
