Pekalongan is a small city famous for Batik. It's a must to go to Kampong Batik Kauman. An alley with houses concurrent as Batik shops.
Some of those shops design & produce their own Batik. Got an unforgetable experience in the Batik making.
In one word: batik. In three words: batik, batik, batik. Don't miss Oey Soe Tjoen, Lien Ping Wie, Pad Dugung, if you want to upmarket.
The Batik Museum is worth a visit. For the medium budget the IBC (International Batik Center) is a good choice. For budget shopping go to one of the markets (too many to mention).
If you will plan to visit Pekalongan, I suggest you to prepare better. The cullinary in Pekalongan may be not fit with your taste.
On Fridays, most of the stores are all close. So try to avoid coming here on Fridays, since there will be very little activities.
there are not many activities we can do in this city. For me pekalongan is city with a big name but less development.
This city is stuck. Not many plan we can make to go around. But their BATIK is great. they have many batik house, and it is so amazing. No more.
Pekalongan lies near the sea, and if your hobbies have something to do with water then you might enjoy the sea here.
