Semarang is an erstwhile Dutch colony, located along the northern shoreline of Central Java. A walk around Semarang reveals its historic past, colonial architecture, a buzzing Chinatown and tiny kampongs in the outskirts. Feel the pulse of the city as you walk past its roadside cafes and restaurants, set alongside art galleries and archaic buildings. A variety of temples, mosques and monuments provide a historic and cultural connect. Semarang is a waterfront city and the harbor adds a welcome dimension to the cityscape. Your harbor stroll means watching schooners and traditional ocean-going vehicles dock at the Semarang Harbor. The city is a delight for those who love local handicrafts, made famous for its traditional batik textiles or wayang puppets from Mesjid Bazaar.
