Situated on the north Coast of Java Sea, Semarang is the capital of Central Java province. A vibrant commercial city surrounded by natural beauty, Semarang offers tourists the best of both worlds. Modern industrial estates blend into ancient and colonial monuments, providing a perfect reflection of the city’s colourful history. Close to the harbour you will find the ‘old city’, home to an interesting collection of buildings dating back to the Dutch colonial era. The old city is well worth a stroll and if you have time catch a traditional Wajang puppet performance. Today, Semarang is known for its large Chinese population and Chinese temples including Sam Po Kong built in honour of the Chinese Great Admiral Zheng. Another important attraction is Tugu Muda, a youth monument paying tribute to the heroes of Indonesia's independence struggle. Shopping and dining on famous Pemduda Street and a day trip exploring Semarang’s picturesque countryside are also must additions to your travel itinerary.
