Pontianak

Kota Khatulistiwa (Equator City)

Pontianak boasts a delightful blend of cultures, which live separately in their own sections of the city but come together amiably and often intermarry. Don't be surprised if you end up chatting with members of the Chinese, Dayak, Malay, Bugis, and Javanese communities all in one day. Travelers usually make a trip to Pontianak because they know it as one of the few cities sitting directly on the equator. Get around the area using taxis or a rented motorcycle, but drive carefully and keep in mind that many roads are not well maintained. To arrange what you want to do in Pontianak, use our Indonesia visit planner.

Where to stay in Pontianak

Pontianak offers lots of options to choose from, including backpacker dorm rooms and luxurious suites. Centrally located hotels provide easy access to the international airport and popular Pontianak attractions. Although the hotel market continues to improve with more upscale alternatives opening each year, the least expensive rooms rarely offer air conditioning and mosquito nets, so be ready to sacrifice basic comforts if you really want to save a buck.
