If you’re looking for a quick getaway at an affordable hotel combined with an all-in SHOP+EAT+MASSAGE experience, then you’ve come to the right place! Let me share with you my Batam getaway with the MEGA WORTH WeekendGoWhere package. Keep on reading to find out more about how you can treat yourself, guilt-free!
To start off our 2D1N trip, we set off as early as 8.20 am for a ferry ride from HarbourFront Centre. 45 minutes later, we arrived in the land of Batam!
Moving on to the CITY TOUR! What’s a trip to Batam without shopping, food and massage?
1. Shopping at Malls & Factory Outlets
We want our branded, and we want them cheap. Where do we go? To the factory outlet, of course.
2. 60 Min Traditional Massage
The 60-min session traditional Indonesian massage included in my travel package left me rejuvenated and refreshed, giving me that extra boost of energy I needed for the rest of my trip!
3. Amazing Seafood Feast
For lunch, we were brought to one of the oldest seafood restaurant in Batam, Golden Prawn 933. It is well-known for its super fresh and sweet prawns, fish, crab, shells~
4. The Illusion
Get your camera ready for the variety of optical illusions at every corner!
5. Maha Vihara Duta Maitreya Temple
Dubbed the biggest temple in Batam with 3 main halls for prayers, the spacious Maha Vihara Duta Maitreya Temple is famous for its many Laughing Buddha Statues.
6. Golden Tourist Shop & Birds Nest Shop
Feeling fancy? Bring home some premium Bird’s Nest and indulge in it back in our island home!
Nope, no obligations and definitely no bossy tour guides forcing you to buy anything on the trip! But if you wish to bring a piece of Batam back home, I’d recommend the delicious Indonesian Kueh Lapis or stylish Batik pieces.
8. Kids-Friendly Acitivites [Optional]
For young kids, engage them in a wide range of fun-filled sports at Golden City Center such as Go Kart, Paintball, Flying Fox, Kayaking & more, all with a small fee!
The Golden View Hotel (4-Star)
Greeted by the luxurious lobby entrance, I was already convinced the promo package wasn’t shabby at all! I mean, I had not expected much for a 4-star hotel!
- 2D1N Golden View Hotel from SGD 78 / pax ONLY!
- 3D2N Golden View Hotel from SGD 123 / pax ONLY!
For this trip, we booked the Superior Room. Clean and spacious, I really have nothing to complain about!
