I have a friend working in Pontianak and I am planning a visit there. It seems quite a complex job getting from Singapore to Pontianak; there being no dirct air links between the two places. That at least is what I gather from my net search so far.
Any advise on a good way of getting to Pontianak from Singapore will be much appreciated.
Thanks a lot
just use connected flight from sing 2 jakarta, then continue 2 ponti
Thanks Happy for your suggestion of Singapore > Jakarta > Pontianak. I guess that will get me there but is there a shorter and therefore cheaper route? Is there a Singapore > Batam > Pontianak route or a Singapore > Kuching > Pontianak route? Ayone who knows anyone who might do the Singapore to Pontianak route regularly and has some inside tips?
according 2 d ponti web (http://www.pontianak.go.id/sarana.html) it's say that they provide sing-ponti flight.
sorry it's in bahasa, hope u could read it
sorry if i coundnt help much.. :-(
You can fly to Kuching by Air Asia ( via Johor Bahru ). From Kuching, you can take a 8-hour bus drive to Pontianak. Buses leave Kuching every day at different times.
There is a bus company that offers a package also. It is a 3 day and 2 night stay in Pontianak with hotel accomodation. Reasonably priced. I have never been to Pontianak myself.
If you need more information, I am happy to find out for you.
