If you go Batam via Tanah Merah, the car park charges in TMFT is cap @ $20 per 24-hours block.

Just went for a 3D2N golfing in Batam in early May, my car park charges at TMFT is $51 (considerably cheaper than taking taxi to and fro)

Cost me only $1.80 total return by taking MRT to Harbour Front, no need to drive and look for parking lots. Makes no sense to take taxi or drive there, even day trip, unless MRT is not convenient from your place.

I'd recommend catching a taxi. Even if it's a bit pricier, at least you'll have peace of mind Smile

Upon return to Spore, you will encounter a long long queue for taxis. Be prepared to call to book a cab.

Depends on where you stay...

For 2D1N, I will think that parking charges at Harbour Front will be slightly cheaper/same as taking taxis; I will still park there for which is more convenient.

For 3D2N, you have to do your own maths. 

And a NO for me to park at Seah Imm carpark. Too dark/abandon at night.

I've decided to drive after considering the inconvenient travelling by MRT from CCK and the taxi cost which amounting to $34 or $27 per trip without phone booking. Park at Vivo City B1 Lobby A, nearest to Harbour Front. From 0730hrs 19 Jun to 2200hrs 21 Jun. Total carpark fees $66.30. Am glad actually because my luggage multiplied from 2 medium travel bag to 6 big bags  Very Happy full of barang barang...
