Helo mister........

I heard it several times - how can you like Banjarmasin? It is so busy , crowded , smelly , dirty...

But I do love the place.
We (christa and frederik and me) had a great guide around and we stayed at a really really great hotel... that helps a lot.

I hope you like the tips...

    i used to live in Kalimantan for 2 years when i was little. too bad i didnt get to see the floating market. East Kalimantan (Derawan) & Tanjung Puting are on my travel wish list. FYI indonesians REALLYREALLY REALLY love posing 4 photos even with strangers

    Fascinating pages with interesting details and insights about the zoo. I didn't know anyone could cut out a rubber stamp by hand. Amazing!

    Nice to see someone mentions people as the main attraction. (Well, besides the animals :) Too often we run just for the monuments... Nice page, thanks.

    It's a status symbol to own an orang utan? That's news to me :-) Great shopping tips. I love those batiks!
