Is it possible to travel from Jakarta to Singapore without flying?

And do you think 2 weeks would be sufficient time to do such a thing?

Thanks in advance!

You can get a ferry from Jakarta to Batam apparently...

A PELNI ferry by the name of Sinabung departs Batam at 10.00 a.m. once every 4 days for Tanjung Priok (port in Jakarta). The cheapest one-way fare costs Rp177,500 (about S$35) and the journey takes about 26 hours (i.e. you'll arrive at Tanjung Priok at 12.00 p.m. the next day).

If you're heading for Bali, you'll have to take another ferry by the name of Dora Londa from Tanjung Priok to Surabaya. This ferry departs Tanjung Priok for Surabaya at 1.00 p.m. and 6.00 p.m., and the cheapest one-way fare costs Rp132,000 (about S$26). Once you get to Surabaya, transfer to a bus to Denpasar.

And then from Batam to Singapore its a 45 minute ferry.

The ferry ride from Singapore to Batam is about 45 minutes, and the one-way fare costs about S$25. There are several ferry operators, one of which Penguin Ferry Services has been receiving good reviews for their reliability. You can catch their ferries to Batam from World Trade Centre Ferry Terminal in Singapore. For more information, contact their sales counter at (65) 6271 4866.

hey, thanks for the reply smile.gif

I did see that ferry... was thinking it seemed rather a long time though! I was hoping there'd be a shorter ferry where the countries are closer together. Might look into flights from medan...

thanks for the help!
