Singapore To Pontianak

by chongfookchoy Online Now Nov 13, 2006 at 7:41 PM

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

    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?

    Thanks

    hi
    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.
    Bon voyage!
