Great developed city with many good food
Pontianak is a good city well developed during 10 years lately. Favorite spots were such Gajahmada st and around, where you easily find local cuisines. Travelers must try Pontianak local foods such as Fried Kway Tiau, Chicken Rice, Siomay, Kway Cap and many more. Also taste original coffee in a traditional coffee shop. Trust me, your trip will give you unforgotten impression and you will love to return to Pontianak.
Travelers strongly recommended to visit and see the riverside life, try to have an adventure by taking "motor sampan" or small boat moved by engine. It is very amazing especially when you travel with your family.
Soon, chinese new year will come, Travelers will see the main street fully decorated with lanterns. Dragon dance is one of the show which mostly waiting by Travelers.
Air ticket become very expensive during the chinese new year. But, this is the moment where many travelers come. The cost you pay will very valuable
I don't suggest Travelers come during "ceng beng" or people part to their ancestors mostly on mid March or early of April. Air ticket will double, sp travelers better about the season.
Today, Pontianak is very easy to reach as many carriers landed to Pontianak.
So, no reasons to say no to go to Pontianak.
