Shopping Sightseeing Historic Sites
The capital and most populous city in Borneo, Samarinda entices tourists with its traditional foods, religious and historical artifacts, and markets. Add one of the city's famed food, souvenir, and traditional knick-knack markets to your itinerary: They can be found all over the city and draw scores of tourists and locals annually. There are also a number of outdoor attractions here. Visitors should be aware that over half of Samarinda's land is open for coal mining, and this has caused a number of health and environmental effects, including flooding.
