It is not a tousist destination, the people are friendly a very differnt part of Borneo to where we have visited before
Need more information for sight seeing or crusing the river;the culture of Dajak we could not find the actual information
Quiet town, with a large university, but little entertainment (Aquarious hotel bar is the exception, with daily live music)
Not so big city, but very comfortable. very quiet, so i love being here to enjoy the calmness of the city.
Palangkaraya is the best town ever, and the tradition still close with people alot things to be explore.
If you would like to see better-designed-managed-version of Jakarta, go to Palangkaraya. This is one of the best-designed cities in Indonesia.
The city is very much alive with considerable traffic volume just as other big cities in Indonesia, however, almost no traffic jam here. The roads are large, even large enough for jet fighters to land. Pedestrian areas are also comfortable, with abundant green trees as your umbrella.
u can visit the Kahayan bridge, that divides Kahayan river, the view from the bridge is nice, souvenirs can be found in the market batam, T-shirts, batik, jewelry, and various types of dry food kum-kum park could also be another option, only this park seems poorly maintained
Basically Palangkaraya is a friendly city, seems like people there knowing each other. I suggest you to rent a vehicle for your travel convenience, since it's quite hard to reach one another places if you counting only by public transportations provided by the city government of palangkaraya.
Most tourist (international & domestic) usually find that it is interesting to visit Kahayan River especially in the morning, sightseeing the floating market and taste traditional food and snack made by local people there.
Its very much a business traveler city, close to mining areas. Nothing for tourists, except that its a pit stop for onwards journeys to rain forest (Urang utan sight seeing)
