I would like to express my feelings about what i think is a total screw up on the side of the Harbor Bay Ferry Terminal & Mall. Firstly the Ferry Terminal was a very good idea. With the check in counter located in the centre of the food court close to the terminal. Excellent job....Then some idiot (Probably a Singaporean) with more money than sense decided to build a mall. Now the Ferry terminal counter was moved into the mall (Due to Renovations) in October. Well as of yestarday at 4ppm there are still no renovations on the old counter but the sign hanging in the door remains the same. Now you have to stop 1 km from the ferry get your ticket and walk through a deserted mall, over a covered walk way that leaks like hell when it rains. Then you get to a now deserted food court centre. Again someone with more money than sense is trying to rent stalls and stores at Singapore rates, knowing good and well this is not Singapore. There are illegal taxi drivers waiting on you around every corner bugging the crap out of you to use them. The place is dirty and at low tide it smells like a sewage tank. The one and only good thing about this ferry terminal is the ride to singapore is very fast. I hope that one day the geniuses who own the place will figure out that they are not in Singapore and get real with their prices and quality of construction in Batam.No matter what you do in Batam you will never be like Singapore untill you get your head out of your A** and make things proper and reasonably priced for INdonesians.
