daydreaming, just a suggestion...

As many members here do not write/read Chinese, I'd suggest you allow them to send any queries to you instead, in English. You can then pass the messages to your father accordingly.

Better too, if you've apps like Whatsapp, LINE, etc. I'm pretty sure you'll get more people approaching your father through you, in English.

Hi,

My name is Clarence. Anyone need a guide or driver for weekend base trip, can contact me. I can help you arrange ferry ticket, hotel. (i can get cheap ticket price & accomodation, guarantee price better than agoda.) I don't earn any from ticket & hotel or commision. You can pay me in service based fee as your guide.

I can show you many great place & cheap eating place that won't be available in any tour agency itineray. and no tourist trap such as golden prawn, factory outlet, any place that tour agency used to bring their guest to.

Itinerary of tour, it depends on your preference. If you prefer makan, i can bring you explore all kind of batam's unique makan place that is different from singapore. If you like fishing, I can help arrange fishing trip itinerary. If you like spa & massage, then the itinerary will be focusing on spa. If you like shop for grocery, I can bring you to place that sell cheap grocery & market. Just feel free to discuss what kind of tour that you prefer. we can work on that.

I used my personal car to bring you around. (seat limited to 4). And i'm only available on weekend or public holiday, as I'm always at SG at weekday.. I speak chinese, english, or malay.. I guess the language wont be barrier.

Contact me at 97337247 (including whatsapp, line & wechat)
or +6281364640748 (only weekend)
or pm me.

Windsor foodcourt is one of my favourite seafood locations whenever i visit Batam with my friends. They have many seafood stalls, satay, BBQ seafood, rojak etc and the pricing is much lower compared to the seafood shops in malls.

True that they have a lot of beer girls there selling beer, just ignore them. Their live-show singers performs every Friday, Sat and Sun from 8PM onwards. For a romantic setting, go to HarbourBay Seafood.

As posted, a review on a.piaw, basically, pronounce as "Ah Biao" for those to know chinese.

Summary of the service and other relevant details

Language: Uncle Biao is chinese himself so you can communicate with him without any language barrier.. if you are chinese. Don't know Bahasa Indonesia?? no worry ! He can help you with translation if you have problem talking to the local too.

Service level :
Service level is pleasant to be honest.
  1. bring us around without complain as we are traveling in his vehicle since the moment we reach Batam. only back to hotel room by 12am~!! He has no complain and very friendly from the moment we met him till we leave batam.
  2. He has 1 spare phone (simple nokia phone la) which he can loan to you for the convenience to contact him if you need to do your own things like spa or shopping.. so he can go drink kopi own his own while you do your stuff. Kinda good so i don't need to spend money on SIM card to call him whenever i am done.
  3. The only Hicup is when we reached Batam we cannot find Uncle Biao because we don't have his number.. and there so many tourists and tour guides around. So i suggest TS or people who contact Uncle for his service please get his mobile number or prearrange a specify meet up place. I only have TS Line contact and when i reach Batam.. there is no internet!!! and the free wifi at the jetty is basically died that day.. so to be on the safe side.. get Uncle Biao number and see if you can borrow a phone to call him when u reach Jetty.

Price : Reasonable.. as we are travelling in a group of 4.. so after dividing out.. i think quite good deal. More detail on the pricing please neg with TS. Uncle Biao don't understand english and don't use LINE or whatsapp.

Conclusion : Not a bad start to kick start your virgin trip to Batam.. Do you own homework and ask him to bring you to those place where u like to visit, eat or sightseeing. You can also ask him for recommendation if you have no idea where to go. He also don't bring you to those touristy place to chop your carrot head too. unless u wanna go la of course..
