Needed a getaway for an intensive session of massage so my hubby and I were camping for cheap flight to BKK, since the last time we went there, we did a 5hr massage session at Asia Herb Association. It was sooooo good. But the air tickets for last min bookings were around $200+ each not including the hotel + massage. We felt that it’s not worth it unless we got cheap tickets.
So we looked for alternatives, next was Thai Odyssey in JB. It’s worked up to $40 an hour. For 5 hours would be $200 + a bus ride which prob a couple of dollars. However, we are not very keen in JB.
And my FIL suggested why not Batam, and we remembered the last time we went there wasn’t too bad. So we went to check out the pricing:
3.5hrs of SPA/massage + 2hr foot reflexology + Return ferry + Taxi ride = $190 per pax
Which is way cheaper than JB + BKK, so we booked immediately! So if you really really need a massage badly can consider trying out Batam. The foot reflexology is quite painful, so if you have low tolerance of pain like me better let them know. I ended up with a blue black on one of my foot (too fragile). Other than that we had a very relax time there.
