City of Good Fortune

Known as one of the cleanest cities in Indonesia, Pekanbaru boasts unique Malay architecture and a thriving economy based on exports of crude oil, palm oil, and paper. Surrounded by plantations and oil drillings, the city contains 18-par golf courses and a large sports center. A Pekanbaru vacation offers easy access to museums and quite a few parks, frequented by recreation-minded locals. What the city lacks in attractions is more than made up for with numerous shopping malls, selling local and international brands.

Where to stay in Pekanbaru

As an important business center, Pekanbaru hosts a number of five- and four-star hotels located near golf courses and major shopping malls. Mid-range hotels and resorts are available in the city center, but you will be hard-pressed to find budget rooms in this modern city. If you prefer to stay close to exciting nightlife options, look for accommodations in the Tampan District.
