Paotere Harbor, Makassar

2.6
Conveniently located just a 15-minute becak ride north of the city center, Paotere Harbor represents a bustling hub of seaside and fishing activity. Survey the locally built, famed Bugis ships, which dock here throughout the day and watch as they load and unload goods. Together with the locals working the fisheries, these ships provide a valuable insight into the day-to-day business of the area. Walk down the dock to visit a variety of stalls; head south to experience the vibrant fish market. A visit to Paotere Harbor represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Makassar trip builder to plot your vacation.

    Nice visited the port and striking was how much people wanted to, how much they like on the picture just wanted to chat and how hard it worked. Beautiful experience.

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.
