Tanjung Balai Karimun
Caught the 9:50 Penguin ferry at the Harbour Front Centre but arrived early as advised to check in at least 1/2 hour before departure and within 90 mins arrive at Tg Balai.
I chose to sit on the open top deck and although a calm, glorious day, it's advisable to sit as close to the front as possible to avoid the sea spray. Coming back the boat was smaller and packed full of mongers so forced to sit outside, the sea was very choppy so ended up soaked in sea spray.
Paid the Visa on Arrival VoA and went 'head to head' with the marauding sharks. Moto sharks is an apt name, these clowns literally 'circle' you until you can walk fast enough to escape their clutches.
I chose to walk to the hotel, turned left, left, right and walked for about 10 mins. As mentioned by other brothers, it's quite an experience. Tg Balai is classic 3rd world town, undeveloped, run down and chaotic. If you have fair skin, wear tee shirt, shorts, hats or sunnies or any of the above, you will stick out like 'dog's balls' and receive plenty of stares and attention.
However after fighting my way thru the crowded streets I accidentally find the hotel, if you check the photo, it's basically a shop front wedged between other buildings.
After check in, the hotel keeps your passport and return ticket andy you pay at the end of stay, I approach the receptionist and request money exchange and Villa. Bellboy takes me by ojek to a money exchange down the road, swap SGD 110 to cover the anticipated activities.
Gabion Hotel driver takes me to Villa, about a 15 min drive one way from the hotel. Villa is a good name for the place, it's kind of like Spanish villa or village with wall to wall shops full of girls.
The driver stops at the start of the block and I begin my assault, with my night vision goggles and hottie targeting system, I go house to house, quickly scanning the selection. With about 10-15 girls in each house, you must be quick because like 'bees to honey' the slaves will swarm you, tugging and grabbing any piece of you they can get their hands on.
I eventually hit House 8 and to my surprise and delight I see the sex legend, Nia 23. She is heavily reported in the old cityxguide.com forum but normally works out of Rukko. I ask the Okt the price and he notices the Gabion car and driver behind me, the driver like close ground support trailed my progress around the villa. Okt quotes 200K, I ask for 180 and he offers 190, I couldn't be bothered breaking down 50K so accepted 200K.
The fact Nia has my left hand stroking her breasts and her hand rubbing my crotch doesn't influence my decision. Based on my research, I already know she is secure, clean and good but I ask for good service and also get Okt card in case of problems. He asks my room number and confirms delivery in 10 mins. The driver takes me back with a massive grin on my face.
Note no hand over of money.
Well, she is as good as reported in other forums. Although we can't communicate she puts plenty of energy and gusto into her work with total GFE. It's very realistic so hard to tell if she's 'actually' enjoying herself. However she admired my DATY skill and told me it's shoik so I know that's a compliment plus she seem disappointed when I could not blow my load.
I shot her 3 times with 2 x half shots. BBBJ, DATY, 69, GFE, CIM but doesn't enjoy it, photos / videos included in the price.
WIR: Yes, but have to try some other hot brown sugars or Chinese Indo first.
Indo is a very bureaucratic by nature but follow these steps to avoid the hassles I went thru.
1. Go Early - hotel driver will go to the ferry about 30 mins before departure, if the ferry is 'full' they immigration officials / ferry operator may refuse passage.
2. Agent Voucher - go to the Penguin / Indo Falcon office on either side and pay 10K for a some departure voucher, green border slip.
3. Seaport Tax - pay 10K at Customs / Immigration to get a rubber stamp on the ferry ticket.
Hotel driver drops me off at the ferry terminal with 30 mins to spare. I go to Immigration who blabber or mutter something about Seaport Tax, no idea what it's about but pay it, then they mutter about something else (Agent Voucher), one of their guys takes my passport and starts to walk off with it.
I get very nervous so grab it off him and make my way to the boat gate. At the last Immigration check, they kick up a stink because I don't have the Agent Voucher, I have no fucking idea as did not read anything about it on ferry website or on the forums.
Anyway one of the officials asks for money, I give him SGD 2 thinking it will solve the problem, but no he drags me back up to the ferry operator outside Immigration. The operator on RHS going to the terminal tells me the ferry is full.
I completely lose it. I said you must be fucking kidding me, I have a flight to catch, I'm catching the 11:00 ferry and next one is 17:00. I say the ferry is not full when I try to board so WTF is going on.
Little did I know the official noticing the gravity of the situation went to the ferry operator on the LHS and obtained a voucher and called his mate on the dock to hold the boat for me. We grab the voucher, run thru all layers of Immigration and I sprint onto the boat.
Things to Do Differently Next Time
- Go with other mongers or local lingo speaking partners, not due to security concerns but to chat and exchange notes during downtime and potentially rotate girls. The girls don't speak English and even with stunners, without dialogue it's a bit monotonous banging the same girl over and over again.
- Do homework on sourcing Chinese Indo girls. I noticed the visiting Chinese mongers mostly used Chinese Indo slaves. I reckon it's worth exploring the option as the Chinese Indo slaves are hot.
- On departure, go early to cover the expected hassles at immigration and keep some IDR to cover the voucher and tax costs mentioned below.
Cost Summary (in IDR unless stated otherwise)
Ferry - SGD 43
VoA - 100,000 or USD 10
Accommodation - 120,000 or SGD 22 at Hotel Gabion
Dinner - 83,000 includes mee goreng x 2, BBQ chicken and clove cigarettes at place directly opposite Gabion
Drinks - 15,000 green tea delivered by hotel room service
Late Night Snack - 40,000 rice, BBQ chicken, salad for 2
Nia - 200,000 + 100,000 tip + 20,000 ojek fee at END not START of service
Agent Voucher - 10,000 (Sing residents pay it)
Seaport Tax - 10,000 (seems like a foreigner tax as Sing residents don't pay it)
Hotel Complimentary Services
- Ferry drop off and presumably ferry pickup
- Currency exchange (probably an affiliate of the hotel but they offered market rates and exchanged by a good looking Chinese Indo girl)
- Trip to Villa
- Breakfast (nasi lemak and black coffee)
Photos in Gallery
- Tg Balai ferry terminal
- Monger hotel street (Gabion and Maximillian)
Just imagine going to the middle of nowhere and picking up a raw, native girl to fulfil your sexual needs as and when you please for the price of peanuts! That's Tg Balai because there is SFA to do apart from banging the crap out of your slave.
In all seriousness Balai is a good option for people time rich and money poor.
You certainly get excellent mongering mileage and value there!
I have been hearing a lot of good things about T. Balai.
I would like to make a trip there for the first time. I heard that we can board a ferry from Melaka to T. Balai. Can anybody please tell me where about in Melaka is the ferry terminal? What do I when I get off the ferry? Any immigration thing I should know about?

Although I agree that it is good to have guide. I feel if one stay in hotel such as maxi or padi mas, there is little need for driver guide since hotel provide driver. And it is quite expensive to have such service- food comission, girls comission ++. In fact, one trip by two ppl for a 3 days 2 nite would have provide the driver one month salary of an average balai's worker!
Anyway that is my two cents' view.

I also have to thank Hunter for responding to my request and creating the Balai thread. It's about time we had a dedicated thread to the rising star in monger world!
But all we need now is a cross link to the Singapore and Malaysia threads....
I'm planning to go to tanjung balai 1st time. I'm from Malaysia. Any tips and fare's there. How much an average girl there costs per night? Anything I should know? This will be my 1st trip outside Malaysia. Never booked a women before. My ex gf sucked my cock once but she left to someone richer.

Careful! I spent an hour chatting with an informed local hotel manager. At 7 p.m. he insisted that one of his staff drive me back to my hotel, the Maxmillian, as the area around his hotel was unsafe. Personally, I did a lot of night walking, but some areas are pretty dark.Originally Posted by Stephen Raj
There are about ten "guides" who operate out of the ferry terminal and offer taxi service, girls, a hotel etc. If you arrive with a taxi, a commission is paid by the hotel to the driver -guaranteed. Hence, book by phone in advance. There is no need to use a guide to go to Villa; use a hotel taxi if possible. The girls at Villa and Ruko went for R180,000 LT in April 2006 and the quality was decent. If you go with a guide, you're facing an extra R70,000 to R100,000. The girl I booked had a good attitude. You can also check out a booking place called KFC (if I remember correctly) not far from the terminal.
Concerning the Hotel Maximillian:
The staff are pleasant and they are the only positive thing going for this hotel. The cafe food is passible. The front desk has no safety deposit box and my room was overpriced at Sing$38. Compared to Batam, the rooms are expensive in my opinion. Avoid the karaoke lounge on the 6th or 7th floor. They charged me for five beer and I ordered two (one for me, and one for a hostess. I disputed the R80,000, but to no avail, as the billing wasn't clear at the time. It was deliberate. There were no "lookers" in this KTV and even the mami was pushing for me to buy her a drink. I left sober after 20 minutes.
If I were to return, I might try the Rasa Sayang or Padi Mas, the latter a classier hotel.
I'm bule and not easily rattled, but my comfort level was not high in this city, unlike in Batam. This is a single activity town. Have a good time and watch your ass.
what are the reasons i use a guide at balai
1. i know he gets a commision from the pimp, thats why i dont
give him any tips
2. u call him he books the rooms for u at any hotel of your choice
which my is hotel gabion and if i like a particular girl he book the girl
3. he pick u up from the terminal u dont have to worry about the sharks
waiting outside and bring u back to the terminal on your return journey
4. u need to eat, so he pick u up and go to a nice place to eat
of course for this u dont need him there are food everywhere in balai
5. at night u want to go our maybe to a disco, having him will certainly
be a bonus to keep the trouble makers out of the way
i agreed u dont need a guide in balai, if all u want to do is fuck all day
stay in the room do nothing else, watch t.v.,call for room sevice
but for me and my friends we like somebody local around, just in case
so he makes a few bucks no big deal.
What you say is correct. For two or more people a guide makes sense. Stephen Raj is travelling solo I believe. If it is one's first time in T. Balai and one has no "previous relationship" with a guide, it may end up costing you a lot, hence spoiling the fun.
It's more fun as a group tour.
Sorry for my silly question :
1. What is BBBJ, DATY, GFE, CIM
2. For 200,000 RP , we could get the girl in our hotel for how long time? I heard it's 1 day , then when we have to say bye to her in case we go there at evening.
3. For Chinese Indo girl , any tips to get them?
And any other race? As I dislike dark skin.
I read following info about Hotel at TJ Balai . Any comments? Thanks.
BTW, there is no info about Hotel Maximillian on this page. I don't know why.

Hi,Originally Posted by William Saw
But does Hotel Gabion offer driver to drive you to Villa & Ruckko? But is hotel gabion room condition old? I stay in Rasa Sayang before. Their room condition is a bit too old.
I do agree in some way that having a driver is good. In fact I use driver before to go beach & waterfall. And I agree 100% on not paying any tips to the guide for all his services.
Gabion Hotel: Jalan Nusantara No. 45, Tanjung Balai. Close to the ferry terminal but hotel offers complimentary terminal pickup ???
May I know how to get their pickup service ??
They have driver at terminal for each sailing ?
I called Gabion Hotel just now, but the guy can not speak english
it is best to call them during office hours from 9.00 to 5.00.
ask for reception. during this period the girls are at the counter and
they speak english
the rooms at gabion is not that old, to me is ok, they have ESPN and
STAR SPORTS CHANNEL that is very important to me
