I am planning to travel Indonesia and Malaysia from the beginning of January 2014 for 6-7 weeks.

I will be leaving from Sydney and therefore wondered what would be the best route to start from and finish in order to get a flight back to Sydney.

My main destinations I'd have within this route would be Bali, Borneo, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. I'm also still undecided wehther to go into Thailand, Maybe Phuket as it's slightly close.

Any suggestions would really help!
Thank you!

From Bali (via ferry), you can travel overland by bus and train through Java and Sumatra and then get a plane from Medan to Singapore. I've done it the other way a few times and it's quite an interesting trip.

Krabi is slightly closer than Phuket...
