"Indonesia's most Chinese city" Top 5 Page for this destination Semarang by theo1006

Semarang Travel Guide: 56 reviews and 227 photos

Semarang is the place of the earliest Chinese settlement on Java. Chinese traders obtained a concession of the local rulers to establish a trading post here long before the Arabs and the Europeans arrived.

So the main touristic attraction of Semarang is Chinatown and Chinese culture.

Also there is no lack of colonial architecture.
