Pekanbaru

Pekanbaru is the capital of Indonesia’s Riau Province in Sumatra, serving as an economic center by heading up the country’s oil production.

Getting into the city is made easier by the regional and some international flights that are served by Sultan Syarif Kasim II Airport. Hotels near the airport are centrally located in the city center, within easy reach of most attractions and landmarks.

Pekanbaru is often considered one of the cleanest cities in this country, and some of the unique and modern architecture is definitely characteristic of its status as a growing city that’s still finding its identity. However, there’s still a lot to see and do in this city, such as the Riau Fantasi Water and Theme Park, where visitors can take part in cultural and amusement activities. The park is a popular venue for live shows and other public entertainment, making it the perfect place from which to experience a lot of the local culture.

Pasar Bawah Traditional Market is a favorite destination among visitors to Pekanbaru, offering a chance to explore handcrafted and traditional fares for purchase. Visiting this market is a great way to interact with the locals while experiencing some of the atmosphere of this city, maybe even taking away a few trinkets with which to remember one’s trip to Pekanbaru.
