Borneo (Kota Kinabalu/Sandakan) to Sulawesi (Manado)

Hi there,

Anyone knows the best cost/benefit trip from North Borneo to North Sulawesi? I'm thinking of flying from Kuala Lumpur to Kuching, make my way up north through Brunei and possibly catch a flight from Kota Kinabalu (Malaysia) to Manado (Indonesia).

So far flight prices are not for the faint of heart as they involve multiple stop-overs in Kuala Lumpur and even Singapore.

I have approximately 1 month in Borneo and then another 2 months in Indonesia, visa allowing.

Cheers for your thoughts.

Goto www.airasia.com

Then book flight from KL to Makassar,at Makassar book a car/or take the domestic flight to Manado.

This would be cheaper.

Return flight from Makassar to KL- Kuching

Seems almost impossible to do this on a month's visa and cheap budget... but I'll have a look into it, thanks for the tip!
