Batam is in Indonesia and if supposedly you land up to this beautiful area, you should not hesitate to try out the ferry service it offers. This is not only a cheaper means of travel when compared to the other luxurious means but will also take you to many of the important destinations like the harbor front, as well.
Nongsa, Sekupang, Harbour Bay and Batam Center are the ferry terminals of this area. Since your destination is going to be Harbour front, you need to depart from Batam Center.

The specialty of Batam Center lies in the fact that it remains connected by a bridge that goes overhead and joins with the Megamall of Batam Center. This makes the ferry terminal all the more convenient for tourists and commoners. Another likeable point is the number of food joints that have popped outside the terminal. The door linked with the bridge opens usually around 10 am. The availability of local food and Saint Cinnamon sees to the fact that people like us don’t remain hungry while waiting for the ferry.
The terminal is very well maintained and you won’t feel a delay with the immigration procedures therein. Neither would you feel dissatisfied when it comes to the money changers.

There is the Duplo Splash for children with height below 1.02 meters along with a blue, red and orange one. The names of the slides are given to distinguish them based on their speeds. Another attraction of this water park is the Build-a-raft River. Here you have to design and make your own Lego raft.

However there is no need to worry regarding the safety aspects as the river are only a few centimeters deep. Also the kids are provided with free life jackets to make it feel more adventurous. However this piece of sport has only one entry and exit point which makes the points a bit crowded at times. All of us must have been pretty fond of mermaids at some point of our lives.
