Makassar

Trip Planner Asia  /  Indonesia  /  Sulawesi  /  South Sulawesi  /  Makassar
One of the nation's major port cities, the multicultural melting pot of Makassar gets most of its bustle from commerce and the shipping industry. The tropical heat coupled with unrelenting traffic and pollution don't draw tons of tourism, though the city's interesting chaos and activity may make for an interesting trip to Makassar. History buffs will appreciate its colonial past, with the Dutch historically controlling much of Indonesia's trade and economy centered here. Our Indonesia road trip planning app combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.

Where to stay in Makassar

There has been a slight upturn in Makassar's options for places to stay in the recent past, thanks to an increase in the area's tourism industry. A solid selection of three- to five-star hotels centers at the heart of the city and also dots the outskirts. Makassar definitely has you covered where luxury is concerned; expect plenty of air-conditioned rooms, top-quality annexed restaurants, swimming pools, gyms, and spa and wellness centers. Budget-friendly accommodations are a little thinner unfortunately, so guesthouses and homestays represent the best value for the budget-conscious traveler.
