This was my first trip to Batam Centre, and together with my good friends - Lijuan and Joyce + cousin.

Many tourists also like to get Polo Ralph shirts from Batam too as they are very much cheaper here.
We arrived at Batam Ferry Terminal at around 9.40am (Batam Time), went to the money changer and then shop around. You will find many POLO shops even at the terminal itself but do note that these shops are not selling the authentic Polo Ralph Lauren products. There is 1 small Polo Ralph Lauren shop at the Batam Terminal but the selection of shirts not that many. After that, we proceed to Batam Mega Mall which is linked to the terminal by a bridge. We had our lunch at A&W and later, we took a 15 minutes walk to a nearby Polo Ralph Lauren shop (Much more selections here, as many tour agents will bring the tourists here. Remember to ask for maybe 20 - 30% discount) and after that, we went for a Spa treat at Tiara Mustika. After spa, we went back to Mega Mall HyperMart and stayed at the Mega Mall for dinner at Solaris Restaurant before we boarded the ferry back to Singapore.
