Sekupang International Ferry Terminal
Indonesia has always been a magnet for tourists across the continent. Its undoubtedly vast landscape contains various gems to be discovered. Pristine beaches, mighty mountains, and challenging terrains are only a few among many natural wonders of Indonesia. Aside from the natural attractions, Indonesia is also an emerging country with many central business districts, and one of them is Batam. Batam is located in the outer part of Indonesia. Despite its outer location, Batam isn’t like any other. Situated in the western part of Indonesia, it is closer to the neighboring countries rather than its capital city. Its primary location has enabled Batam to develop its city to be a metropolitan.
Currently, Batam has made its way to the top cities known as a place for MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conventions, and Exhibitions). Central business districts, entertainments, and leisure activities are developed in Batam for the locals and visitors. To accommodate more people from abroad and vice versa, Batam has also built several transportation facilities, one that is popular is the ferry.
The ferry terminal has been built a long time ago to facilitate mobilization from Indonesia and neighboring countries like Singapore and Malaysia. There are 4 major ferry terminals in Batam and one of them is Sekupang Ferry Terminal. Sekupang is located in the northwestern part of Batam and accommodates voyage from Singapore Harbourfront Centre. It takes approximately only 45 minutes of sailing to and from Harbourfront Centre. Its prime location also enables you to go to leisure districts in no time, like Nagoya Hill which only takes approximately 25 minutes by a rented car. Near the ferry terminals, there are also resorts that offer top-notch services for its guests.
