In addition, most resorts have sundries shops. If wanna play safe, just call ahead to enquire. Cigs in Indonesia? is nothing at all.

Besides selling them in carton, DFS used to sell like SGD12 for 3 packs or SGD5 for each pack for those who go Batam/Bintan for short trip. Not sure if they still sell them in loose packs like this.

They still selling per pax. But if your trip has a few smokers, share n buy a carton which is way cheaper.

I went to Batam via HarbourFront in late Feb, DFS either sell in carton (@$29) or loose pack (@$5). I don't seem to see anymore of the 3-pack in recent months both in airports and ferry terminals
