if you like shopping, it is ok. it is a dirty city with unpleasant people.. there is nothing to do
Its a Clean City, many of Landmark you can find in this city, many of historical building you can find at Semarang.
Very friendly, I love the streeth foods. Lunpia Semarang, Soto Bangkong, Oen's Ice Cream, etc ... very very love it
Semarang is quite crowded city... there are some nice place / tourists attraction... and mostly just like ordinary city
I was here in Semarang for a Business trip, so I didn't have much time wandering around the city. From this short trip that I was here, Semarang isn't really a city I would travel too for a vacation.
Semarang is a very lively city, dating back from since before Dutch colonisation. Semarang laso has numerous old buildings having beautiful architectural properties.
its strategically located in the middle of the city. shopping is nearby. busy town and many interesting place, good food, learn history and culture
Semarang is really nice place with so many historical building. The famous one is Lawang Sewu (means Pintu Seribu in Bahasa).
Another place I've visited is Sam Poo Kong. I really love this building. If you search for food, you are in the right place. Semarang has a delicious food such as Lumpia, Tahu Baxo, and Bandeng. I will recommend you to visit Umbul Sidomukti because it has beautiful nature. A warm water above the hill. It located in Ungaran.
You must try the culinary here, a lot of food to try, only available here in semarang. A lot of historical places to visit and haunted story behind them.
Semarang is the largest city at central java which is about one and a half hours from the historical town of Solo and Jogjakarta.
It has few shopping malls, old colonial dutch building and also port.
City with a live nightlife , especially in Simpang Lima. Unlike other cities, Semarang doesn't have traffic jams.
My first impression of Semarang is people are not friendly at all. However, after knowing people, they are not bad at all.
comfort city full of historical building lack of public transportation, you may need a taxi. but don't worry since the cost not to high :)
Semarang traditional culinary is one of the best and delightful culinary in Indonesia. This city always makes me to come again and again every year.
Semarang is become one of my favorite local destination bcoz the Culinary is awesome... The hotel price is also cheaper then other cities.
Love Semarang so so much and can't to wait for my next visiting ;)
It is the capital city for Central Java. It is famous for it's "Simpang Lima" that you might not find pretty much anywhere else.
I don't know how you say "Simpang Lima" in english, so I'll try to describe it. It is a intersection instead of four, it's five. Or, when you meet a round-about, it has 5 exit. It can make you lost as you find lots and lots of "Simpang Lima" in Semarang. They area famous partly because of it.
The food is excellece, various food such as nasi ayam, nasi pecel with sate keong, soto semarang, lumpia, wedang ronde, es teler, bakmi jowo, bakso kampung, sate sapi, bandeng presto, tahu petis, mi hap kie, mi siang kie, pisang penyet, nasi pindang, tahu pong, tahu gimbal, siomay semarang, swikee etc.
.. hmmm yummy...
when I was in Semarang, I always visit the place for accupressure therapy at Rusun Pekunden for my health.
It's not only phsiotherapy but also with herbal (depend on illness). If you interest to keep your healthy when you come to Semarang, please visit Mr. Pri (you can ask to Becak rider near pandanaran hotel)
The city of Semarang was the origin of the spread of moderate Islam in Indonesia. It was the famous Admiral ChengHo that brought peace to the warring land, and sew the seeds of Islam as the religion of peace in Indonesia.
Semarang is the symbol of peaceful amalgamation of religions.
There are many food traditional in Semarang, when night you can visit Simpang lima, sometimes they have event.
Semarang is a great city that still have the small town feeling and yet possesses all the modern conveniences

We go to Semarang definitely for the food!! I ate 6x a day during my visits. Not because I am a glutton but there are so many things to try and taste but usually not enough nights to keep me there.
Semarang City is famous for its delicious cuisine sych as Lumpia Gang Lombok, Soto Bangkong, and Tahu Pong and half-blooded Chinese cuisine.
Semarang is a unique city with Simpang Lima and Lawang Sewu as my favourite land mark. So many old building still exist use for government and business also.
Semarang is very nice city to visit, It has various food to taste/try and some beautiful places to visit (Lawang Sewu Building, Sam Po Kong Temple, Blenduk Church, Great Mosque of Central Java, etc).
