India-Indonesia-South America

Any boats from India to Indonesia? Cheap ones...
7 years ago, October 3rd 2013 No: 1 Msg: #175789  
Going to India 28th October, have return tickets 4th December, but planning not to come back yet! Friends have invited to Borneo. There are flights from Delhi to Kota Kinabalu(not sure if direct or not), surely the easiest, but just curious if there are boats also. Gargo boats I mean, not going to pay for any high class cruiser for sure.

And..another friends live in Columbia, is there a way to get from Indonesia to New Zealand and from there to Peru or elsewhere in South-America? Reply to this

G'day Miro. Thank you for using TravelBlog.

You need to check out some of the websites in the "Overland and Sea" forum Essential Over Land and Sea sites.

I would suggest "Freighter Expeditions" but that is my preference.

Sylvia and I have travelled extensively between countries using freighters but I think you will find that they are not as cheap as you think.

Budget for at least US$100 a day. Reply to this
