Get out and about while you are here. Start with a visit to the Plaza Balikpapan.
It comes as no surprise that Balikpapan is a perennial favourite with with international and local vacationers alike; Kalimantan is an Aladdin's Cave of great attractions.
History lovers will adore Kalimantan 's fabulous ruins and traditional villages.
In this fast-paced world, the perfect holiday often means making time to breathe deeply. When it's time to unwind, do as the locals do and have a go at sunbathing or bird watching. Specialized tours are a good way to experience the places most visitors never see. Sign up for one of the guided nature walks and wildlife spotting tours.
There's no nicer approach to get to the heart of the place you are traveling through than sampling the local cuisine. Sample popular local dishes, for example kolo mee (dry tossed egg noodle salad) and midin (stir fried jungle fern with shrimp paste).
If you are visiting Kalimantan on the 17th of August, join the party during the nation-wide Independence Day celebrations.
A wise person once said: it is better to see a place once than to be told about it a million times. With its magnificent beauty Kalimantan will more than live up to your expectations.
