Overall: Highly recommended

Description
I have engaged daydreaming tour service for my department with a total pax of 7 for a 1 day batam trip on 23 Dec. You will have to purchase your ferry tickets online and forward the details to daydreaming. Uncle Piao will be at the ferry waiting for you.

We went:
• Go Kart / Paint ball
• Ralph Lauren Polo / Diana Kueh Lapis
• Massage
• Nagoya Hills Shopping Centre

PRO:

- Most of our communications were done through LINE and daydreaming always replied very promptly.

- Uncle Piao (Daydreaming’s dad) is a very friendly fatherly uncle. He mainly speaks mandarin. No communication barrier. He even provides us with an Indonesian phone for us to contact him once we have finished our shopping

- Uncle Piao’s car is an SUV which can comfortably sits 7 people.

- Massage at Indo – Thai which offers a superb massage services. Typical damage for 2 hr massage: RP320,000

- Uncle Piao brought us to a local koptiam for our lunch. The kopitiam was superb and serves many indo and chinese food at a very cheap price. Localised price.

CON:

- We didn’t manage to play go kart / paint ball due to bad weather. Will definitely engage Uncle Piao for my next batam trip!!
Thanks for the update Bro!!

hiiii.. I can share my opinionn... self driving its greatt.. but you must know the road.. in batam, there not gps map like spore
then you must be careful.. taxi local & mini van for pick up passanger like bus (as we called metro trans) driving fast and dangerous, like to stop suddenly if they meet the passanger.. so must be careful..
Driving car in indonesia is different with spore (spore more regular & follow the regulation).
If you have local friend to show you the road, where destination, it will be a great journey

• Nagoya Hills Shopping Centre
• BCS Mall
• Seafood at Big Food Court
• Local delicacy at Kopitiam

PRO:

- Uncle Piao’s car is an SUV which can comfortably sits 7 people.

- Provided us with an Indonesian phone for us to contact him in case we get lost.

- He is knowledgeable and provide great recommendation for both shopping and dining.

- He has shown his helpful side by going the extra mile, helping us collect the Kueh Lapis we ordered the day before.

- Waited for us patiently at the ferry terminal even though we are late for almost an hour (due to ferry delay)

Montigo Resorts Nongsa

“Excellent service”
5 of 5 starsReviewed yesterday NEW
There are many reviews stating how beautiful the resort is, so I will not elaborate more on this.
I'm impressed with the service that we received during our trip there, every service staff in montigo is friendly and helpful.
There is this one particular front office staff I would like to compliment, Hong Jin Young. He is warm and friendly but most importantly he is very patient while explaining the resort facilities, despite we asked a lot of questions and he answered all of them patiently, (which is very good compare some of the service staff in Singapore). We're very pleased with his service.
Overall we felt that he is sincere when attending to his customers, we can feel that he loves his job and he always has this big smile on his face. Keep up the good work Jin Young.
We will definitely go back and stay in Montigo again.
Stayed January 2015, traveled with friends

Golden City Go-Kart

“Average Go Karts”
3 of 5 starsReviewed January 5, 2015 via mobile
Rode the "super fast" go kart, to me its just slow, super loud, too small for me, me 6 foot frame. I felt cramped. Had rode other go karts around the glode those feels faster.

Diana Homemade Layer Cake

“Simply tasty treat!”
4 of 5 starsReviewed April 16, 2014
What can i say? simply a tasty treat. i did compare their cakes to another popular brrand from batam called layers i think. or lamoist.
anyway theirs are less sweeter depending on which favor u preferred

A great overseas gift for my friends and relatives, my folks at home simply love it!

Gideon Hotel Batam (*** Hotel)

“An enjoyable and pleasant stay”
4 of 5 starsReviewed 2 weeks ago
Was impressed with the decor of the room, tastefully done up. Comfy super singles with fluffy pillows, no musky smell due to the absence of carpet flooring. The only downside was the towels- they had old stains. Service staff were friendly and prompt. A great budget hotel a stone's throw away from BCS mall, a huge wet market, and few good ol' coffee shops patronized by the locals.
