(2.7/5 based on 380+ reviews for top 10 attractions)
Things to do: shopping, sightseeing, religious 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.

Where to stay

There are numerous affordable, convenient accommodation options in Samarinda. These guesthouses, hotels, and bed and breakfasts may need a fresh lick of paint, but they more than make up for it with WiFi, basic but clean rooms, and cooked breakfasts. If you're willing to splurge a little, there are a couple of centrally located three- to four-star hotels and holiday resorts too, where swimming pools, gyms, and lush gardens are part of the package.
