Singkawang is located about 160 km north of Pontianak, the provincial capital, and is surrounded by the mountains Pasi, Poteng and Sakok, and Natuna sea. Singkawang, in Hakka Chinese name "San Kew Yong" mean "the town under foothill, estuary and the sea".
What I like from this city is the Lotus fruits.... I really like it since I was kid. and When I visit to this city again....I will always looking this Lotus fruits... And each corner of this city, we can find temples.... cos this city 70% is Chinese....Hakka Dialect, that's why this city it called Little China, or Amoy city, "Amoy" mean Teenage in Hakka dialect.
It say if we go trhough this bridge, and wish, then we will find our match, soulmate....:), and we can read in kanji, write on the bridge.
Every corner, we can find like this temple. When Lunar year come, this city become bussy city cos of celebration of CHinese Lunar year.
White sand, good view, good place for suntan...and also swimming....:) more travel advice
