  • The place is pretty good. So sam po kong is in addition to a place for worship was made for the tour. There are several good spots for photos. Not only to take pictures only but we can learn about the history of the House of tiong hoa in a wall. The price of admission itself is divided into two canals and no sign-on. But I forgot how to who don't sign-on, while for its own Canal price, tickets are Rp 25rbu. If to Semarang could be one of a selection of sights to be seen.

  • Did you know that this religious temple is not only for Buddhist and Chinese ethnicity? The temple is open for those who seek for the blessing, doesn’t matter what your religion is. The people there are very polite and humble. They do a very good job to keep the temple nice and clean. The entrance ticket is affordable and it’s located not to far the city. A very interesting experience!!! You should definitely come to this religious place when you’re around Semarang, Central Java.
  • Salah satu wisata terkenal di Semarang, merupakan tempat ibadah umat konghucu. Tiket masuknya ada 2 macam yaitu area luar dan terusan. Area luar yaaa di lingkungan luar, tapi ttp kelihatan semua bangunannya. Gak bisa masuk dan deket banget ke pendopo2/klentengnya. Tiket terusan bisa masuk sampai ke dalam, bisa deket klenteng2 dan bisa masuk. Tapi sayangnya yg boleh masuk ke klentengnya hanya yg akan melakukan ibadah. Hmmm sayang banget kan, kmaren zonk uda beli tiket terusan tapi ternyata cuma bisa liat (meski dr dekat) tapi ga boleh masuk. Tapi yaudahsihh... Harga tiket masuknya Rp. 10.000,- untuk area luar dan Rp. 28.000,- untuk terusan. Ditambah biaya parkir motor Rp. 2.000,-.
  • Good place to visit while you bring young children. The area is quite safe and you can let your teeny tiny to be free running around without worry of dangerous stuff. The LION dance held everyday from 12pm - 5pm which quite entertaining. Food, beverage, toilet, baby room available in strategic place.
  • This place has a very artistic building, it can be visited by all ages. One of the tourist destinations you should visit if you are in Semarang city. The location is very easy to reach because it is in the middle of the city. The entrance tickets are also not too expensive, very fit for the backpacker.
  • beautiful area with big chinese temples. There's an entrance fee for the main area and another small fee to enter inside some of the temples but not really necessary. you can spend an hour or two there and enjoy some typical street food and small outdoor market. recommended!
