    Dear partners in crime!,
    i just hit the dead end in Batam with NO information on "HOW TO TAKE MOTORCYCLE FROM BATAM/INDO TO SINGAPORE" on a CARNET. please help! your info would help me to cross this weird Island called BATAM (even Batman hated coming down here..i guess)
    I have been here two nights, govt holiday..so, hard to get info!
    any tips on how to take, how to avoid expensive landing fee's in Singapore, any scam....goes a long way!

    You will need to check with the Singaporean LTA (Land Transport Authority) it is my understanding that No vehicles are allowed into Singapore from Batam. But you had better check current rules from the LTA. It may be possible to crate it and send it as freight??? you really should have checked before you got to Batam, as a fear you wont get any good news from the LTA.

    You will probably need to get your bike to Medan where there is still (check current up to date info.) a ferry that takes bikes to Port Klang in Malaysia.

    Good luck.
