Hello. Am Natalie, and will be traveling to Balikpapan for a short vacation next week, before I continue to Tarakan for business purpose. Since this will be my first time in Batam, would be glad to find good companions during my stay there. Contact me if you wish. Cheers .
Is this a good place for me to experience SE asia? Do u all have other recommendations apart from Borneo?
i ll spend 3 weeks in Indonesia in sept. On the top of Java and Bali wanted to spend 5 days in Kalimantan, read that the area around Balikpapan and boat trips on the Mahakanm river are very nice and unique. Really liked also that the canals in South Kalimantan are nice too.
Can anybody suggest, give some tips if you have been there and you think its worth visiting ? organised troups are quite expensive and was wondering whether i should go there as opposed to Sulawesi where i could visit the torjana region.
any suggestion between the two?
greetings felow travellers..
i was just wondering, since i live in Balikpapan. i was thinking about driving my way in borneo, maybe go to Kota Kinabalu, or Brunei, and other places, but, is there really a road from Balikpapan to that upper borneo (Brunei and K.K.)?
i really want to go there...
so if you guys know hot to get there from Balikpapan, please help me out...
Does anyone know a way of contacting Derawan Homestay, other than by telephone? If any VTers have stayed there, I would be really interested in your impressions.

Can anyone please advise how to fly directly from Malaysia or Singapore to Balikpapan?
Thanks a lot!
