2 Day 1 Night Batam Stay at Harmoni One Convention Hotel Day 2

Sunday (5th August 2012) and it is also the day to be back in Singapore. The planned itinerary is to check out of hotel at 12pm and wait for our transport back to ferry terminal and wait for our ferry to bring us back to Singapore at 3:20pm

I believe you should be thinking that how come so wait for transport since the ferry leaving at 3:20pm. Yes, the transportation is too early but they said we can go to the Mega Mail next to the ferry terminal for a short shopping plus lunch before leaving back to Singapore which will be around 6pm plus by that time.

We wake up very early in the morning (Around 7am) and wash ourselves before going down to their restaurant for our complimentary breakfast buffet. You just need to tell the counter staff your room number to be able to enter the restaurant.

Going down for our breakfast buffet. (our hotel room is located at level 2)

When we first step into the restaurant, there are already quite a lot of people having their breakfast and the restaurant is very very spacious with very high ceiling.
