Banjarmasin

(3/5 based on 480+ reviews for top 10 attractions)
Things to do: shopping, historic sites, sightseeing

City of a Thousand Rivers

Banjarmasin sits within a delta formed by the Barito and Martapura rivers, so life here generally happens along its waterways. Floating markets and monkey-gazing canal trips highlight the typical Banjarmasin itinerary, and the city also offers a rich collection of centuries-old mosques. The drier parts of town remain centers of modern activity, with Banjarmasin's 650,000 residents slowly doing more of their shopping in shiny new malls instead of traditional markets. Take a look at our Indonesia vacation route planner to refine the details of your trip to Banjarmasin.

Where to stay in Banjarmasin

Due to the warm and humid climate of Banjarmasin, you’ll be glad to hear that even the budget-friendly options here have cold showers or air conditioning as standard. If you are willing to pay a little extra, amenities such as hot water, Wi-Fi, and meals throughout the day become available to you in one of several lodgings in the heart of town. A cluster of accommodation sits along or near the Martapura River, while another set of lodgings lie on Jenderal Ahmad Yani street outside the city center. Hotel prices in town remain quite reasonable, but homestays or guesthouses in the area offer an authentic and budget-friendly alternative.
