From [[Balikpapan]] there are many buses. It takes 2 hours and it costs 21.000 rupiahs.  Alternately a bus from the airport directly to Samarinda will cost 350.000 rupiahs. Otherwise might be worth it to charter a private car, some good haggling will get you there for 400.000 rupiahs, be prepared for a wavy ride, locals drink Tolak Angin or other herbal drinks to avoid car sickness.

From [[Tarakan]] prepare for a long ride.  First take a morning speedboat to Tanjung Selor and then find a car right outside the jetty headed to Samarinda.  There will be plenty of drivers there to help out.  The cost is around 300,000 per head.  The journey is long, about 15 hours, and the road is pretty terrible in spots.  Make sure to take some motion sickness pills if you don't have an iron stomach.
