How much money should you bring to Batam?

How much money should you bring to Batam depends on the number of days you plan to stay there. Food and shopping is relatively cheaper compared to Singapore (if you are travelling from there), however, if you are planning to do more than that, you might need to budget slightly more than the average. The meals in Batam might range from S$3 (street food) to S$20 (restaurant) per person per meal. Activities such as massage and spa can cost you on average S$10 to S$30 per session for the simpler treatments and up to S$80-S$100 for the longer and more extensive treatments. If you plan to stay in the resort or hotel during your stay, you might still spend at the property on food and services. However, do note that hotels can usually charge the payment of food and services to you room and you can settle the bill via credit card upon checkout. In conclusion, you can refer to the following guide on how much money to bring for your Batam trip:

  • 2 Days 1 Night Stay – $50-100 per person
  • 3 Days 2 Night Stay – $100-150 per person
