No wonder there are no latest information from Samsters to share given how info given are deemed to have vested interests.

Re: Batam Info / Interest / Help Thread

Hmm...signboards like the below were scattered everywhere around Harbour Bay's Hotels and malls. Also notice a handful of taxis with the Ezy Taxi logo on it too.


I find it pretty interesting.

Was talking to one of the drivers the other day about the flat fare. Seems like the flat Rp30,000 fare was enforced by Harbour Bay Terminal itself. I believe it's in an effort to promote the newly renovated terminal and shops in there, increase the people boarding and alighting from there. Taxi operators are told to either comply or not operate there.

However, do still be careful. There are still some drivers who will claim that the fare is Rp50,000 and say it's the same everywhere when you try to go to the taxi stand, so always insist that you want to go to the stand and only take the taxi from the stand. Also, for those who have not been there for quite some time, the taxi stand is now changed location. Once you arrived, you'll see Starbucks (yes, it's new), so turn left to the exit and follow the path to the end where the taxi stand is located.

I guess as much,hehehe...the photo above was taken outside Jco,beside Swissbel hotel,and i tried taking a taxi from there when there was 2 taxis parked there yesterday evening,and guess what. You are right,they tried to quote me 50k rupiah to Nagoya. I showed them that sign board on the picture above on the 30k rupiah charges,they complied,hehehe....they actually parked their cars there BLOCKING the sign board but i went there to take a photo of it.

Next thing now,i will try to call the number stated on the board to see if they would come to the hotel to pick me up at 30k rupiah,hehehe...

A lot has obviously changed in Harbour Bay. Harbour Bay Ferry terminal Arrival hall area has a Starbuck,hehehe...

I think bro Blackpage might probably like it. Only sad thing for me is the area is now air-conned...and has become a no smoking zone.

Last May (duly reported here), my experience was "complex", so to speak. I had to go two times to Grapari to get my two SIM cards registered with my passport and working.

I undestand from some recent posts that the situation is better now? did the simplify the procedure? No more need to register the SIM for us foreigners?
Any difference depending on the operator?
I bought a Telkomsel sim card from the shop below at Harbour Bay. The boy on the right hand side of the photo (he speaks broken English) tells me now Telkomsel sim card sold in his shop no need to register and will last as long as i top it up (like in the past). Other sim card/s like the IM3 sim card etc i bought few months ago will last for one month and will expire if i do not register.


...and by the way,there is another thing you might wish to take note...


...the old Horizon Ferry counter in Harbour Bay has shut down.

However,you can still find their new counter on....


...and they have downsized their counter size. So i see longer waiting queue.


Take the escalator up 2nd floor after you comes out of the arrival area,and you will see the ever popular Malaya Cafe Restaurant,Horizon ferry counter is just round the corner,hehehe...if you look hard enough.


Photo of the above were taken on the 2nd floor from the escalator,hehehe...
