Singapore is a destination that is widely visited by many tourists from all around the world. One of the main appealing aspects of a nation is that it can easily welcome and attract tourists from all parts of the world thanks to its hospitality and friendly nature of the people. This island nation has many things to enjoy and there are several places of tourist interests in the city where many people flock at all times of the day.
But, one of the most anticipated thing which people look forward to when they are in Singapore is the city’s famous ferry rides. There are several famous ferry stations in the city—the most popular one being the Harbour Front Station— from where you can get a ferry ride to several exciting and exotic places in and around the city.
Travel to the Asean countries:
One of the most economical and fastest ways to travel through the Asean countries (the name of the South Asian countries’ group) is by the ferry rides. From Singapore, you can easily travel to places like Indonesia and Malaysia with the help of these ferry rides and companies. And, you will be surprised to know that all tourists and travellers coming into Singapore—irrespective of their budget—prefer to use the ferries as they are fast and very convenient.
One such journey that many tourists make is the ferry ride from Singapore harbour centre terminal to the Batam island which is situated in Indonesia.
The Journey to explore Indonesia:
As soon as you take a ferry to batam from Singapore, you also open a world of opportunities. Batam is right across the Strait of Singapore, and that’s why it is one of the popular destinations for all Singapore-based tourists. The island itself falls under the Riau Islands State or Province in Indonesia, and that’s why many see the place as a gateway to the Asean nations.
The bintan ferry is also quite enjoyable, as during it you can experience the cool and gushing winds of the sea. Although the ferries here are quite small in terms of a number of capacity, they are quite studying and strong in order to withstand the wrath of the waters.
And, as soon as you anchor up in Indonesia thanks to a ferry ride, you can easily explore this great country too.
The whole nature of the journey:
The ride from Singapore to Batam is quite memorable to say the least. A general ferry ride can cost you near about 22 to 30 Singaporean dollars (SGD).
The ferries are quite appealing too in nature, as the decks of the ferries are designed in a way to promote tranquillity and good looks. So, if you are planning to visit Singapore, then make sure to book at ferry ride first!
