Small Town Unique


Singkawang is the main tourist town in the province of West Kalimantan Indonesia. Often dubbed as the 'City of a Thousand Temples' because so many temples found throughout the city. City is small, but beautiful and unique. Most of the population are of Chinese descent, hence also called as the 'City of Amoy'. The atmosphere here is very interesting evening. Moreover, at the time of the holding of Cap Go Meh Festival on the 15th of the first month of Chinese New Year.

Singkawang adalah kota wisata paling utama di provinsi kalimantan barat Indonesia. Sering dijuluki sebagai 'Kota Seribu Kelenteng' karena sangat banyak ditemui kelenteng di penjuru kota. Kotanya kecil saja, tapi indah dan unik. Sebagian besar penduduknya adalah keturunan Tionghoa, karenanya dijuluki juga sebagai 'Kota Amoy'. Suasana malam di sini sangat menarik. Apalagi pada saat diadakannya Festival Cap Go Meh pada tanggal 15 bulan pertama tahun baru Imlek.
