Im heading to KL at the end of April, wondered if people are going to be here at the same/similar time? From KL im planning to do Malaysia and then head down to indonesia.. I have already done Thailand, Laos, Vietnam & a bit of cambodia.

Any suggestions or people going to be around here?

You may consider Melaka, Taman Negara, Perhentian Island, Penang Island and of course if you have more time may even take a flight to the East Malaysia (Borneo).
Happy Travels!

Hi Sean,

How long are you intending on spending in Indonesia and what are you planning on seeing.
It is a huge country so need to know a bit about what you are thinking of seeing or what your interests might be.

Hi Pamela. I guess it would he around a month. I have no idea what there is to do there or what I want to do, apart from diving. but All I know is that I will end up in Bali for a bit then got to make my way to Singapore for flight home. What's the best way to get to singapre from Bali? Is there any ferrys?

If there are any particular islands or places you think I should visit. I would really appreciate it. Wouldn't mind a week of doing nothing on a beach.

Hi Sean,

The only way to get from Bali to Singapore is by flying.

Maybe best for you to do some diving in Bali or maybe on the Gilis - islands north of Lombok.

Ok thanks Pamela. I will definitely go there. Thanks for your help.

There are actually some ferries from Riau Islands, Indonesia to Singapore. There's a bunch of ferry companies that do it, for example this one.

From Bali I'm sure you can make your way to Bantam / Bintan by ferry and then catch a ferry to Singapore. Obviously not as fast, but I guess that's the fun of it right :)

If you're heading to Indonesia after Malaysia, just visit North Sumatera at first, or even Batam. By plane, it will only take few minutes to be at Medan / Batam airport ;)
