Swanky Airport

If you come for old heritage and historical trip Makassar is only transit city before you go to Rantepao, Tanah Toraja. But often, this big city is popular for business traveler since the economic pulse from Eastern part of Indonesia coming from Makassar. I visited Makassar on October 2008 and surprised with the rapid development it made. New toll road, bright airport (Jakarta airport looks dull compare to this high ceiling and glass wall airport) is among few new attitude offered by Makassar.
It took me around 30-40 minutes to my hotel in Jalan Somba Opu, Losari beach with this new toll road. Their ambition to shift Indonesia’s economy from Jakarta to Makassar might already been began.
