The Banjarmasin Rundown

Banjarmasin, the capital of South Kalimantan in Indonesia, is a cultural haven. While in the capital city, you may wish to visit the remnants of Banjarmasin’s palace. These can be found in Kampung Kraton. Here, you can see Masjid Sultan Suriansyah, the first mosque to be built in South Kalimantan. The area is also home to the royal burial site. The Museum Waja Sampai Ka Puting, contained within an ancient Banjarese house, is popular with tourists to the city. If you wish to see the second largest mosque in Indonesia, visit the Masjid Raya Sabilal Muhtadin, which was completed in 1981. ... Read more »

Banjarmasin is packed full of wide and mighty rivers. These rivers are an important part of Banjarese life. Catch the floating markets on the rivers each day in Banjarmasin. The rivers are also host to boat races and other festivities, so do not miss out on these. Take a canal trip along the waterlogged suburbs. Visit Pulau Kembang to see the long-tailed macaques at the decrepit Chinese temple. Purchase nuts in advance to feed them, and do not tease them with your own food. Alternatively, take a trip to Pulau Kaget and see the proboscis monkey. Banjarese, the name of South Kalimantan’s ethnicity, build unique houses and other structures. There are around 12 types of traditional Banjarese houses, so look out for these when you travel around the city.

When To Go

The Indonesian region of Kalimantan boasts year-round high temperatures, which peak at around 30°C (86°F). The climate of Kalimantan relates to its equatorial setting. Sunny weather is commonplace in Banjarmasin, so clothing suited to hot weather is essential. The area is relatively dry between June and October when precipitation is low.

December to March represents the city’s wettest period. In late winter and early spring, it is advisable to bring a light raincoat.
