Travel to and from Pontianak  (2 Answers)


I was in Pontianak years ago and am now planning a trip back. But I'm sure things have changed! I'd be very grateful if anybody could offer information on flights upriver to Putussibau. Also has anybody travelled from Jakarta to Pontianak by ferry? If so, how long does it take, what does it cost and what is the frequency?

I'd be very grateful for any responses to [email]

With thanks

5 days in Pontianak

We are a group of 4 (or 5), planning to do a tourism research. We are four students and one mentor. Need info on:

1. Nice but cheap accommodation (hotel, motel, boarding house, etc) to sleep and make small discussions.

2. Good or excellent but unknown (not yet promoted) West Kalimantan tourist destinations. Please rate its uniqueness (1 to 10 scale).

3. What's the safest time to go about the area?

4. How can we thank you? I was thinking of giving you (whoever you are) a credit in our report. The final report will be in a seminar in Jakarta.

Any advise on a good way of getting to Pontianak from Singapore will be much appreciated.

Thanks a lot
