Indonesia Travel Guide


One of the most famous landmarks of South Kalimantan is Banjarmasin with its labyrinth of canals and it's floating markets. These traditional markets take place on the Kuin River. At daybreak, boats come from nearby villages and bring vegetables, fruits, spices and chilies, fish and shrimp, and other daily needs.

Buyers also come to the market in small boats and close their transactions on the water. As day breaks, the atmosphere becomes more cheerful. The number of buyers and boats increases. At a little past noon, the market calms down. And empty boats leave. The best time to see market in action is in the early morning, between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m.

Banjarese love their foods and adore their own local specialties, like Soto Banjar, Masak Habang, and others. The ones in restaurants, malls, or foodcourts are fine for beginners, but to find the real taste of Banjarese food, you have to go to hidden places in small streets because there you'd find the ones that are famous among the locals.
