  • Strolling around this old town is must thing to do while in Semarang. Best time to do it is in the afternoon. Old building with old and cripple wall is the main target visitors in here. Because it's look photogenic. Almost all area is photogenic. My favorite place is around Blenduk Church. Behind the church you can visit old and antique market. If in the afternoon you bothering by lots of people, try visit this area early morning around 6 am.
  • This is such a good place to take a great photos for your instagram with free entrance. every inch of this place is totally amazing. for some people, this place is just an ordinary place. but the rest will see that this is an instagram-able place. and also it has a historic story behind the buildings. so, take your camera and share your photos to others.
  • The place that you could go on the night for take a some photos in low light. The place great. I recommend to use 35mm lens
  • Back to the colonial era...best building architecture, many good place for spot fhotos spot and will remind about the historical this place before.. nice place to see !
  • Strolling around and it is really interesting to see buildings since colonial era are modernize and now being used for cafes, resto, shops, guest house etc. Also for old things collector, here are also available an antique stalls near the Church
