A scenic seaport city located on the eastern coast of Borneo Island in the East Kalimantan Province, Balikpapan is famous for its timber, mining and oil exporting. Two harbours, Semayang and Somber, and the Sepinggan International Airport are the main transportation access to and from the city. However, there is much more to Balikpapan than just is rich trade resources. The modern town is crowded with activity and attractions. Whether it’s the fine dining and sophisticated shopping of Balikpapan City commercial district, swimming at Melawai Beach, crocodile feeding at Crocodile Teritip Breeding, or the gorgeous Wanawisata Garden, Balikpapan is sure to captivate and charm.
