Malalayang Beach, Manado
This beach, located at the southern tip of the city of Manado, North Sulawesi, is one of ten zones that are included as New Bali in 2020. Malalayang Beach is famous for the charm of its underwater garden where many rare fishes endemic to Manado can still be found in these coastal waters.
The natural charm of the surroundings is no less beautiful. Many photo spots can color your social media. With calm waves, this beach is a perfect destination for sunbathing.
Golden City area, Batam
The area located in the Bengkong area, Batam City, Riau Islands, has many interesting destinations that you can visit. One of them is the Cheng Ho Mosque which is unique because it has Chinese-style architecture. There are many other interesting spots such as Dino's Gate and Golden Prawn Beach Park which are fit for having fun with family and relatives.
Punti Kayu Nature Park, Palembang
This natural tourist spot, located in the middle of Palembang, South Sumatra, is one of the largest inner-city pine forests in Indonesia. Here, travelers can enjoy the natural feel of the pine forest, take a break from the city, or just have fun with the family. This natural park also provides challenging entertainment such as off-road tracking and flying fox.
Siak River, Pekanbaru
The river that stretches across the city of Pekanbaru keeps the history of the city. This river is very beautiful, whether it is day or night, where many people are active to enjoy the evening sky along the river, by eating a variety of culinary offerings, or by taking a river tour by boat in the pier area. Currently, various revitalizations are carried out in the Siak river area to maintain the scenic view of the river.
Equator Monument, Pontianak
Known as the Equator Monument, the monument is on Jalan Khatulistiwa, North Pontianak, West Kalimantan Province. The Equator Monument is best to spot the Culmination of the Sun every March 21-23 and September 21-23. When this phenomenon takes place, the sun is directly above the equator and the shadow of the monument will "disappear" for a few seconds despite the sun's rays.
Graha Indah Mangrove Center, Balikpapan
As we know, Mangrove Forests have a role in maintaining the balance of the environment around the coast. Balikpapan City has the Graha Indah Mangrove Center, which is the best place to learn about the function and role of the Mangrove Forest.
This educational nature tour is located not far from the city center, making it easy to visit. The main attraction when visiting the Graha Indah Mangrove Center is the boat facility that can be used to go down the Somber River. We can also see some endemic animals of Kalimantan such as Proboscis monkeys and various types of mangrove trees.
