Banda Islands vs Togean Islands...what would you prefer?
And which island is easier to arrive from Bali? I would be very grateful for any opinions, don't has to be objective, just write about your impressions because it's so hard to decide where to stay for the last week of our trip?
Which island is better in case of the beaches? Snorkelling? Food? The resorts?

2Togeans are definitely easier to reach (easier via Palu and Ampana than via Manado though), offer more "resorts" (no resorts on Banda).
With no flights, squeezing Banda into a week could be a challenge altogether.
Banda has FAR better snorkeling though.
For beaches it is a draw - neither archipelago is really beachy, for that Kei or Belitung would be far better.

3Ok quick hit - with three + weeks can I do both the Togaens and TToraja at a semi relaxed pace? spending at least a week at each. Using Bali as entry and exit point/
As pelni seems to be putting up the ferry schedules to banda only 15 days in advance now I may still go there but will not be able to make that decision tell virtually the eve of departure, so I am looking at a fall back plan. Oh I have 24 days but have to fly out of and back to Bali
Any help comments or opinions welcome - not to thread jack but Sulawesi seems to be the most viable alternative
