Multi Purpose Quick Service and Information Center

I am not promoting but what I saw and I experienced myself. Most likely, all the government and semi-government institutions are here to serve the locals, as well as foreigners, under one roof.

For example, you are not sure where it is located. Let’s just make it simple.

It’s in Batam Center area. Nearby Batam Center International Ferry Terminal. Any, taxi or rental motor biker knows Mega Mall too which besides the port.

Moreover, by public transportation, such as a bus or any other local transport, you can reach.
You need to ask people to way out and, also you can check it by Google Maps, as well.

However, I am explaining here in this writing to make it easier and comfortable, in case it become helpful to you.

I guess you got it. You can see the building.

By the way, it’s by the Seashore. And, I really love the place, whenever I go, I must spend a few minutes watching the Ferries and people fishing at waist high sea water.

And, a far view of Nongsa area at right, and left Coastarina, that Ferries cross by way and back to Singapore and Johor Baru of Malaysia.

This image is of the behind to the building, and, amazing view of the sea. A long row of palm trees. If you visit there afternoon time, even you can enjoy fishing just near to shore.

Some are knee height or waist-high sea water, while some are on the small fishing boat.

I mean, if you love this kind of natural view, you are going to love it.
This public service building is really a nice and strategic position with beautiful natural Sea View.

However, I like this.

However, there are many in this kind, such as IM3, Friends, XL, and some others.

There is also, a small cafeteria. A nice little place to enjoy the Seaside with a cup of coffee and local snacks.

Also, you see a mini fountain, with blue color lighting.

Enjoying, I found. For the people those who love nature and hot or cold drinks at the same time.
