      Kuching - Sibu ferry or flight

      Kuching Mar 20, 2014 at 3:09 AM


      we will travel Kuching - Sibu in August to make trip up the river. We dont expect to stay in Sibu and continue to Song or Kapit (and Belaga later). I think about two ways:
      1) Ferry - It would take 5 hr, so about early midday in Sibu.
      2) Flight - MASwings has cheap flight, early morning, so let say 9am be in Sibu. The prize is twice as much as ferry (?)
      My questions:
      - what are pros and cons except time? MASwing safe? Ferry trip boring?
      - If using ferry from Kuching, can we get into Song in the same day? Perhaps if fly we should stay in Sibu until ferry come from Kuching and follow with the same boat, so loose anyway?


      Thanks a lot

    • Singapore to Mersing

      Mersing Mar 26, 2014 at 11:13 AM

      My husband and I will be visiting Tioman Island and we were planning on flying there from Singapore, however due to Berjaya air cancelling their service will now need to go by ferry. We land at Singapore airport at 07.15am on 10 April and I'm having trouble finding the best route to the Mersing Ferry Jetty. Would anyone be able to advise on the best trip in the current situation?

      Changi airport offers a coach service to Kotaraya II terminal. Is it easy to get from there to the Larkin Bus Terminal (is this now called Larkin Sentral, and in a slightly different place), or should I instead take a bus or taxi into Singapore center and take a bus from there to Larkin?

      Which coach should I take from Larkin to Mersing? Do I need to pre-book? I understand booking from Mersing back to Singapore would be a good idea to make sure you have a seat.

      I'm of a mind to take a taxi to not have the hassle of all the changing and making sure we get to the jetty on time (even though I still don't know what time the boat leaves, that's another interesting part of our journey!). I have been offered a pre-booked return (Changi-Mersing-Changi) for S$350; is that reasonable or should I look for local taxis instead?

      Thank you in advance for your help!

      Melaka Mar 24, 2014 at 7:33 PM

      I'm planning a trip to SE Asia in August (from Vancouver BC Canada).

      What's the most efficient way to get from Melaka Sentral to Melaka Jaya (Equatorial Hotel) by public transport - if any exists? It is a safe and reliable mode of transportation?

      I've been told some private bus/coach companies are able to drop off passengers (boarding from Singapore) directly at Equatorial hotel.
      What is the name of this coach line and if there is a website or phone number (in Singapore). that would be fantastic.

      Hi all,
      I'm travelling around South east asia for several months, during june-july-august it seems to be the rainy season around south east asia and also the high season because the europeen and north american holiday. I saw than Malaysia is the only country with no rainy season in august, but what about the high season? and do the prices are very high during the high season? like the double and more than the low season?

      Also, what do you recommend if a friend of mine come to visit me in Malaysia but she has only 2 weeks? A bit of culture, beach, snorkelling, shopping?

      And last question, Is Malaysia a safe country? Because I read a couple of bad experience and rumor about Malaysia.

      Battery for laptop

      So, I am wondering, since I will be in Penang next week, if anyone knows whereabouts I might be able to go when I am there to buy the battery? The guy on the phone would not tell me his location (as they only service Australia?)
